Exceed consumer expectations with innovative, label-friendly food coloring
Highly diverse and with frequent product launches, it takes speed, flexibility, and great ideas to keep your meat and savory innovation progressing. We provide technical service and support to quickly match changing industry and consumer needs.
Bouillons and soups
An attractive and appealing sensory experience is important for bouillon or soup products. The final product composition, the processing conditions, and most importantly the salt level will impact your choice of natural color. Our yellow to brown shades are perfect choices for a natural bouillon or soup coloring. But if you want to go green, we can get you there too.
Sauces, dressings, and spreads
When it comes to innovation for sauces, dressings, and spreads, the focus is on naturality, with new flavor trends constantly emerging and shaping choices. Sauces, dressings, and spreads vary greatly in composition, from water based to water/oil emulsions and oil/water emulsions. Each composition can require food color solutions with different solubility characteristics. We offer a complete range of natural food colors that meet the solubility characteristics of your application.
The meat category is under increasing scrutiny, and all-natural claims are on the rise. An attractive, fresh appearance matters. We provide technical service and support to quickly match whatever shade you need, from an appetizing pink for emulsified sausage to a meaty red for fermented sausage. With Oterra, you can achieve a perfect red for your meat production using natural red coloring.
We can help you find the right food color for your seafood product line, including our CapColor® and Vegex® product ranges, which can help you create the perfect shade for your surimi or prepared seafood line.
Snacks and seasonings
With snacking on the rise, providing innovative and diverse sensory experiences for consumers is increasingly important. And if it’s a healthy snack, that’s even more reason to use natural food colors. Whether a color additive is added to a snack as a dry topical seasoning, pre-dissolved in an oil slurry or added into a culinary seasoning, we can help to match your color of choice. We offer everything from powdered food colors to oil soluble food colors that are available in a wide color range.
Noodles, pasta, and rice
Though yellow is traditionally the color of choice for noodles, pasta and rice products, the food color possibilities have expanded to meet consumer demand for new, exciting cuisine choices. Whether you’re converting to natural, looking for a light shade to highlight the naturality of your product or need an intense clean label color, we have the expertise and knowledge to support your food coloring needs.
Breading and batter premixes
With the increasing demand for convenience, breading and batter premixes are a growing application for both the retail and food service sector. Heat stability and no color migration to the filling are some of the key functionalities for natural colors for this application. We can help you explore new possibilities and provide technical service and support to quickly match changing industry and consumer needs.
Plant-based meat and seafood alternatives
Looking for a plant-based food color for your vegetarian or vegan burger patty that delivers the perfect raw, pinkish-red and becomes delicious brown after cooking? Or a soft, clear pink for your seafood alternative? Color is key to consumer appeal, and the best results are usually achieved with a blend of raw materials. Whatever protein source and background color, we can help you achieve the perfect shade with our broad natural color portfolio.
