SupplySide West Review: A Purple Carrot Anthocyanin Extract

November 20, 2012

The company’s purple carrot anthocyanin extract can be used as a heat-stable natural colorant and a functional ingredient.

CTC International (Anaheim, CA) told Nutritional Outlook at SupplySide West that it will introduce a purple carrot anthocyanin extract in March 2013. The company’s purple carrot anthocyanin extract can be used as a heat-stable natural colorant and a functional ingredient for potential benefits including antioxidant support, attenuation of symptoms of metabolic syndrome, and improved vision health. Purple carrot (Daucus carota) boasts vitamin A and beta-carotene levels equivalent to orange carrots, but with more than 1000% the phenolic content, the company says.
