GNT Group has extended its range of yellow EXBERRY® Coloring Foods with a new powder made from carrots. Available worldwide in addition to the existing liquid format, the EXBERRY® Shade Yellow – Cloudy Powder enables manufacturers to deliver a brilliant yellow color shade in a wider range of applications.
The powder is ideal for bakery applications as well as dry mixes including custard, brioches and biscuits.
Both the liquid and powder formats are made from carrots grown by GNT’s farmers and are manufactured without chemical solvents. As such, they ensure high levels of consumer acceptance and can provide a suitable replacement for colorants such as carotenes.
The EXBERRY® Shade Yellow – Cloudy Powder is pH-independent and provides good light and heat stability, along with a 12-month shelf life at <25⁰C, according to its manufacturer.
Sonja Scheffler, product manager at GNT, said: “Building on the huge popularity of our carrot-based liquid yellows, this new powder opens up even more possibilities for manufacturers. Extensive testing has shown it performs extremely well across a wide range of applications, with great stability and long shelf life.”
Based on the principle of coloring food with food, EXBERRY® products are made from fruits, vegetables and edible plants using gentle, physical processes such as pressing, chopping, filtering and concentrating.
