The companys acid-stable blue color can be used to achieve natural green shadesfrom lime to forest for use in confectionery, bakery, dairy and beverage applications. It can also be used to create vibrant purple shades with varying levels of blue for applications across the pH range. Utilizing a combination of colors in the Colors from Nature line, including naturally derived acid-stable blue, results in shades from black to gray for use in a variety of food and beverage applications.
Unlike previous attempts to achieve color shades such as green, purple, and black for applications by leveraging the stabilization of red cabbage or other anthocyanin based colors at neutral pH, WILDs new blue color is unique in that it is truly acid-stable, says Tim Truby, vice president, Food & Ingredient Technology. Our color technology enables us to create an excellent spectrum of other natural colors, ranging from blue-to-green as well as blue-to-purple and black.
