Clouding Agents

Clouding Agents
Clouding agents are generally emulsions of an insoluble material suspended in water.

In solution they can give beverages a more appealing and natural opacity similar to high juice drinks. One advantage of using a flavor emulsion in place of or in addition to fruit juice, is the emulsion's ability to stay dispersed in your beverage.

Most flavor emulsions will contribute some opacity to the finished product, and we often make flavors in which this effect is enhanced. We make numerous classical citrus flavors that are oil and terpene emulsions, which function very effectively as clouding agents but have limited use in non-citrus flavors due to the flavor effect of the terpenes. For that reason we also offer one specialized clouding agent that is fairly unique in that it does not have a strong flavor like a typical citrus emulsion.
