Diana Food has launched a new range of organic, sustainably-sourced colours for food and beverages, adding to Diana’s portfolio of natural solutions.
The non-GMO and USDA-certified organic colours include a blue shade obtained from spirulina, a pink/reddish shade from red beet, and other appealing, naturally-occurring hues like yellow, orange, red and purple produced from natural sources including carrots, turmeric and annatto.
These organic colours can serve as a complementary targeted addition to confectionary, dairy, and beverage products, and Diana Food can also use the colours to create specialised colours blends for customers.
Diana Food says that its agronomy experts work closely with local farmers and seed developers throughout the growing process to ensure maximum quality and colour impact, in order to provide the best sensory experience for consumers.
The farm-to-fork process also ensures supply chain transparency and traceability, meaning that Diana Food can trace colour products back to their farm of origin and provide single-ingredient labelling, giving customers and consumers
Teresa Kilgore, category manager, sweet and beverage at Diana Food North America said: “The concept of ‘natural’ is the foundational principle of the company that goes back to the very beginning.
“Diana Food has a legacy of ‘natural’ that preceded colouring foods. Our commitment to selecting the best of what nature has to offer is an accidental coincidence that works to our customers’ advantage in natural, organic colours.”
