LOUIS, MISSOURI – November 13, 2012 – Sensient Colors LLC, a business unit of Sensient Technologies Corporation (NYSE:SXT) and the global leader in color for food and beverage applications, is pleased to announce the expansion of Microfine technology. With the ongoing trend towards natural ingredients, food and beverage manufacturers want natural colors that provide solutions in multiple applications and products. Sensient Colors has enhanced its Microfine technology and expanded its natural alternatives to replace synthetic colors for dry and fat-based food applications.

Sensient Colors LLC, a business unit of Sensient Technologies Corporation (NYSE:SXT)Developed as a natural replacement for synthetic dyes and aluminum lakes, Microfine powders are a major evolution in natural colors for applications including dry mix beverages, compressed sweets and confectioneries, and powdered food applications. Sensient continues to advance its natural color spectrum and has recently expanded the shade range for Microfine powders using new technology and innovation. This expansion includes shades from lemon yellow to burnt orange, as well as vegetable juices that provide purple to blue shades. Sensient also has developed a unique green olive shade that is suitable for plating on dry blends and dispersing in fat-based systems.

Microfine powders and dispersions both deliver a bright, intense shade combined with enhanced stability features for natural color solutions.
