As a trade association composed of producers and users of caramel colors and related trade associations, the International Technical Caramel Association (ITCA) focuses its efforts on the stewardship and safety of caramel colors and promoting the development of their production, processing, and use. Initially established in 1976, ITCA continues to serve as a voice for the caramel color industry by collaborating with related organizations and associations on issues pertaining to caramel color, conducting scientific research to support the safe use of caramel colors, and engaging in public communications that demonstrate the results of those studies.
