GNT Group extends colouring food range with new yellow shade
Netherlands-based 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 colour shade in a wider range of applications, including in bakery 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 perfect replacement for colourants such as carotenes, according to GNT.
The EXBERRY Shade Yellow – Cloudy Powder is pH independent and reportedly provides good light and heat stability, along with a 12-month shelf life at <25⁰C.
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 a 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.
