Netherlands-based colouring foods group, GNT, will open up an interactive “colour lab” for its plant-based Exberry concentrates at the fast-approaching Food Ingredients Europe event next week, writes Neill Barston.
The business, which recently appeared at our World Confectionery Conference event, will be heading to Germany for the key ingredients showcase, which takes placed between 28-30 November, which is anticipating more than 25,000 visitors from around the world.
For its part, GNT will be offering demonstrations to visitors to its stand (3.1G140), focusing on its well-established Exberry series, which is based upon edible concentrates made from non-GMO fruit, vegetables, and plants using physical processing methods such as chopping and boiling. They are available in more than 400 shades from across the whole rainbow. The range has multiple applications across the sector, with a number of confectionery options.
The company’s dedicated in-house experts will also be available throughout the event to provide insights and advice into how Exberry can meet consumer demand in different regions around the globe.
Petra Thiele, Managing Director at GNT Europa, said: “Exberry allows manufacturers to achieve vibrant shades in almost any application while maintaining completely clean and clear labels. Our special ‘color lab’ will give FiE visitors the chance to experiment with the possibilities for themselves and discover the incredible potential of our plant-based concentrates.”
Based on the concept of colouring food with food, Exberry concentrates are classified as food ingredients rather than additives in the EU and many other parts of the world. They are also suitable for vegan, halal, and kosher diets. To ensure the highest level of quality and year-round availability, GNT has a vertically integrated supply chain, with cultivation and harvesting monitored by GNT’s agricultural engineers.
