The current decision by EFSA to classify titanium dioxide as a ‘no longer safe additive’ poses major challenges for manufacturers in food production. The use of industrially produced color pigments in the food sector is widespread but is also increasingly viewed critically by consumers and included in their purchasing decisions. Norevo offers a unique alternative to manufacturers of pan-coated products: Quick White

Quick White is a whitener that was specially developed for pan-coating applications in the confectionery sector. It is based on specially selected fiber and carbohydrates with multifunctional properties. Only ingredients that can be labeled without E numbers are used. The specialty compared to titanium dioxide lies in the properties: Quick White is not a color pigment and as such it is not a coloring raw material. During the coating process, it forms defined crystals, which cause optimal light reflection and thus develop a white surface after just a few layers. Another advantage in the application in industrially automated coating with spray systems is the absence of the common blocking problem of the spray nozzles, as it is the case with other titanium dioxide alternatives.

Quick White can be used in coating processes with or without cooking and offers hard-dragee manufacturers maximum flexibility, process and recipe optimization as well as an optimal surface, smooth and glossy in light colors or perfectly white.
