ADM has added several new offerings to its range of natural colours for food and beverages, including a new line of micronised powders and a new addition to its WILD Rainbow Range.
ADM’s new micronised powders are made from particles that are much smaller than conventional colour pigments, and the company claims that this increases their opacity and provides particularly striking colours.
Sourced from natural materials including spirulina, safflower, curcumin, and red radish, the new all-natural colours offer a wide range of colour options for various shades of red, yellow, green and blue.
These micronised powders can be used for a wide range of applications including instant beverages, chewing gum, powder mixtures, concentrates and confectionery.
Meanwhile, paprika has now been added as a colouring foodstuff for ADM’s WILD Rainbow Range of colours, and the ingredient is suitable for all food applications.
ADM claims that paprika is a valuable addition to the range as it is heat-stable and, in contrast to orange carrot for example, paprika extract does not change colour and become more yellow when heated, but retains its original orange.
This means that paprika extract can give a bright orange colour to products including confectionery, ice cream, baked goods, breakfast cereals and chewing gum.
Both the micronised colour powders and the paprika extract can be declared as ingredients which contain no E numbers, meaning they are suitable for clean label products.
