GNT extends oil-dispersible colouring foods series with pink shade
Netherlands-headquartered colouring foods firm GNT has extended its Exberry range of oil-dispersible Coloring Foods in releasing a pink shade created from fruit and vegetables.
The company’s flagship product has been continually extended over the past four decades, it has been used extensively across confectionery, snacks and bakery series.
Its latest variant, Shade Pink – OD is the latest addition to a collection of oil-dispersible shades that also includes red, yellow, orange, blue and green options.
When working with plant-based colours, different applications can require different formats to ensure the best results.
The company’s latest series of products are liquid-based colours made by dispersing small particles – created through a unique multi-stage milling process – in sunflower oil.
As a result, they can achieve a homogenous colour effect in fat-based applications including ice cream coatings, fat fillings for biscuits and pralines, compound coatings for cereals and cookies, seasoning mixes for savoury snacks, and fat compounds for chocolate decorations.
Jana Reckter, Product Manager at GNT Group, said: “Fat-based applications have historically proved challenging for plant-based colours, 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 Shade Pink – OD is made from both fruit and vegetables and offers a wonderful pink hue.”
As the company added, the series uses gentle, physical processing methods and no chemical solvents, ensuring widespread consumer acceptance. In addition to the range of oil-dispersible products, the range of colouring foods are available in formats including powders, liquids and micronised powders
