EXBERRY range grows with oil-dispersible pink shade for fat-based applications

GNT has extended its range of oil-dispersible colouring foods with the launch of a pink shade made from fruit and vegetables.

Developed for use in fat-based application, EXBERRY Shade Pink – OD is the latest addition to a collection of oil-dispersible shades that also includes red, yellow, orange, blue and green colours.

When working with plant-based colours, different applications can require different formats to ensure the best results.

EXBERRY OD products are liquid-based colours made by dispersing small particles – created through a multi-stage milling process – in sunflower oil.

As a result, they can achieve a homogenous colour effect in fat-based applications including ice-cream coatings, fat fillings for biscuits and pralines, compound coatings for cereals and cookies, seasoning mixes for savoury snacks, and fat compounds for chocolate decorations.

Jana Reckter, product manager at GNT Group, said: “Fat-based applications have historically proved challenging for plant-based colours, but our expanded EXBERRY OD range means manufacturers now have more options than ever to create spectacular products with clean and clear labels. Our new EXBERRY Shade Pink – OD is made from both fruit and vegetables and offers a wonderful pink hue.”
