Sensient Expands Its Natural Color Options

November 15, 2012

Sensient says its technology prevents clumping during color incorporation in foods.

Sensient Colors LLC (St. Louis) says that its microfine technology has enabled the company to offer new natural color alternatives for dry and fat-based food applications. New color options are available within ranges of lemon yellow to burnt orange and purple to blue shades. A unique green olive shade is also available for plating on dry blends and dispersion in fat-based systems.

The company says these aluminum-free colorants can complement a long list of food applications, including dry-mix beverages, compressed sweets and confectioneries, and powdered food applications.

“Using innovative technology, the Microfine line has expanded to include oil-based dispersions that act as a vehicle to deliver color in fat-based systems,” says Sensient. “Microfine dispersions are a natural color solution to prevent clumping and aid in color incorporation, thereby increasing productivity and accuracy. Microfine powders and dispersions both deliver a bright, intense shade combined with enhanced stability features for natural color solutions.”
