TastyKan, the multi-spice liquid blends are customisable flavour blocks inspired from various global cuisine. TastyKan Tikka Masala is one such flavour block inspired from the traditional North Indian cuisine. The multi-spice block is a unique ethnic mix that provides both aromatic and spicy note to savoury applications like Chicken Tikka, a flavour-rich north Indian dish.
C-CAPTURE is Kancor’s natural colour range that are highly stable in heat and light conditions. The sunrise series of C-CAPTURE gives an orange shade to the end application.
