The company has expanded its range of oil-dispersible Coloring Foods, which so far included red, yellow, orange, blue, and green options, by means of the launch of EXBERRY® Shade Pink – OD. This latest addition to the collection of oil-dispersible shades is specifically developed for use in fat-based applications.
Jana Reckter, product manager at GNT Group, said: “Fat-based applications have historically proved challenging for plant-based colors, but our expanded EXBERRY® OD range means manufacturers now have more options than ever to create spectacular products with clean and clear labels. Our new EXBERRY®Shade Pink – OD is made from both fruit and vegetables and offers a wonderful pink hue.”
EXBERRY® OD products are liquid-based colors made by dispersing small particles – created through a multi-stage milling process – in sunflower oil. Consequently, they can achieve a homogenous color effect in fat-based applications. Among these are ice cream coatings, fat fillings for biscuits and pralines, compound coatings for cereals and cookies, seasoning mixes for savory snacks, and fat compounds for chocolate decorations.
EXBERRY® Coloring Foods are made from fruit, vegetables and edible plants using physical processing methods and no chemical solvents. In addition to the range of oil-dispersible products, EXBERRY® Coloring Foods are available in formats including powders, liquids, and micronized powders.
