Exberry by GNT has released an oil-dispersible yellow concentrate made from turmeric.
The new launch is said to help food and beverage manufacturers achieve vibrant yellow shades in fat-based applications.
Shade Bright Yellow– OD is an oil-dispersible liquid made using traditional, physical processing methods. It is also considered clean label.
The liquid is created by dispersing small turmeric-based powder particles – through a multi-stage milling process – in sunflower oil. This enables the concentrate to produce bright, homogenous yellow shades, which are suitable for a wide range of applications, including compound coatings, ice cream coatings, fat compounds for chocolate decorations and seasoning mixes for savoury snacks.
Sonja Scheffler, head of product management at GNT, said: “Our Exberry OD colours provide outstanding visual intensity in some of the most challenging applications and Exberry Shade Bright Yellow – OD is an exciting new addition to the range”.
She continued: “Turmeric is a well known, on-trend ingredient that is approved for use in most countries worldwide and provides wonderfully vibrant yellow hues. The new product is pumpable for low-water applications, too, making it easy to handle.”
Exberry’s OD range also includes shades of red, pink, orange, blue and green, as well as a safflower-based yellow. All of Exberry’s colours are made with natural processes, are plant-based and come from edible fruits, vegetables and plants.
