NATURAL YELLOW INGREDIENT
Food Ingredient Solutions says its vegetable juice color 4521 is a new natural yellow made from yellow beets. The primary pigment is vulgaxanthin, a water-soluble yellow also found in smaller quantities in red beets. Yellow beet offers a water-soluble yellow alternative to annatto, beta-carotene emulsions, curcumin emulsions and riboflavin phosphate. Vegetable juice color 4517 is suitable for use in yogurts, flavored milks, ice cream, spreads and other dairy applications.
BLUE SPIRULINA HUES
According to GNT Group, when making smoothies, drinks or frozen desserts, having the correct color to match the flavor is essential. Achieving fun, unique flavors such as Basil, Green Tea, Lavender or Winter Mint is now possible thanks to the blue shades of spirulina. GNT’s pioneering CAP petition (2C0297) for the use of spirulina concentrate as a safe color additive expanded the rainbow for all dairy foods. Exberry shade Majestic Blue is manufactured using just water and spirulina, making it clean-label, non-GMO, kosher and vegan. With guaranteed supply and a technical team for support, GNT said its spirulina products are sure to make manufacturers’ products stand out.
According to IFC Solutions, color is one of the most influential aspects when it comes to consumer demand. Going clean label is trendy, and nothing says clean and wholesome like organic. Many associate organic colors in dairy with being as dull or limited to just oranges and yellows. IFC says it has a large library of organic colorants that are perfect for providing bright vibrant shades for dairy products to catch consumers’ attention. Additionally, IFC’s colors are designed to meet the demanding environments of both pasteurization temperatures and freezer environments.
NON-GMO CARAMEL COLOR
In response to growing consumer demand for non-GMO food offerings, Sethness Roquette says it offers Non-GMO Project Verified SB121 liquid caramel color. This clean-label product is the 12th Class I caramel color in the Sethness Roquette portfolio. Manufactured from non-GMO cane sucrose, SB121 is ideal in various dairy applications. It is also much darker than typical Class I offerings, and as a result, it offers an appealing brown hue. All Sethness Roquette Class I, or plain caramel colors, are minimally processed. No ammonium or sulfite compounds are used in the manufacture of any Class I caramel Colors.
