Let's embark on this colorful voyage by delving into the fundamental concepts of the global food color market. Food colors, beyond their aesthetic appeal, play a crucial role in consumer perception and product differentiation. These hues are not just additives.
The food colors market size has grown strongly in recent years. It will grow from $3.45 billion in 2023 to $3.73 billion in 2024 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.1%.
FMI analysis indicates that food colors will account for nearly USD 5.3 Bn of sales in the global market in 2032. The food colors market exhibited a sale by volume of about 185,000 metric tons in 2021 and is expected to have a consumption of 340,000 metric tons by 2030.
Natural colors are created or extracted from edible sources like fruits, vegetables, seeds, and minerals for the purpose of coloring food or beverage applications. like the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States or the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) in Europe.They have been used for many years and are considered safe for use in food and beverage applications.
Food colorants are dyes or colorants derived from plants, invertebrates, or minerals. The majority of natural dyes are vegetable dyes from plant sources—roots, berries, bark, leaves, and wood—and other biological sources such as fungi.
Natural colorants: Carotenoids (E160, E161, E164), chlorophyllin (E140, E141), anthocyanins (E163), and betanin (E162) comprise four main categories of plant pigments grown to color food products.
Anthocyanins E163 is a water soluble pigment used as food additives. obtained from plants by extracting with water and it is a Halal color. Food additive E163, is one of the commercial additives derived from fruit anthocyanin such as blueberry. It is a purple food additive for use in producing purple-colored jam, confectionaries, and beverages.
Butterfly pea flower powder is the industry's first plant-derived natural blue source approved by the FDA. used in nutritional beverages, sports drinks and candy.
Another common reason colors are used is for trends. Rainbow bagels don’t taste like rainbows, and Black ice cream isn’t charcoal flavored, but they are fun to look and provide a picture-worthy eating experience.
Vegetable carbon black powder (E153) is is produced through steam activation (charring) of vegetable fibers. It is an in soluble black food coloring used in confectionery products, icing, baked goods and ice cream. European and Canadian authorities approve its use as a colour additive.
Yes, while it may be hard to believe, blue spirulina indeed has a natural blue colour. Phycocyanin is a pigment that gives spirulina (which is a deep green) a slightly bluish hue. To make blue spirulina, the water soluble antioxidant phycocyanin is extracted from the spirulina and then sold as a blue powder.
Bule spirulina powder is approved under § 73.530 for coloring confections (including candy and chewing gum), frostings, ice cream and frozen desserts, dessert coatings and toppings, beverage mixes and powders, yogurts, custards, puddings, cottage cheese, gelatin, breadcrumbs, ready-to-eat cereals (excluding extruded cereals).
Chlorophyll provide green colorant with good thermal and light stability. Their colors are also more resistant to change under acidic conditions and have good water solubility. Sodium-copper chlorophyllin is an approved food colorant in the United States as exempt from certification. It is primarily sourced from plants such as Spinach & Alfalfa. use in the food, beverage, nutrition supplement, daily-use chemical and pharmaceutical fields.
There are other types of beta carotenes, including E 160a (ii), which is the type that is derived from plant source (such as carrots/vegetable oils/grass/alfalfa/nettle), and E 160a (iii), which is the Beta carotene that is derived by fermentation from Blakeslea trispora.
Beetroot red (E162) is not of safety concern as regards its current use as a food additive. Beet Juice or Beet Juice Powder is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians, Non-GMO, Kosher Friendly, Halal Friendly, Gluten Free, Non-Irradiated. Under number E-162, beetroot red is permitted as a colour for commercial use.
Beet red can be used to color hard candies, yogurt, ice creams and frozen desserts, salad dressings, ready-made frostings, cake mixes, meat and meat substitutes, powdered drink mixes, gravy mixes, biscuit filling, marshmallow candies, fruit preparations, convenience foods, soft drinks, and gelatin desserts.
The FDA continues to allow for the safe use of Titanium dioxide as a color additive in foods generally according to the specifications and conditions, including that the quantity of titanium dioxide does not exceed 1% by weight of the food, found in FDA regulations at 21 CFR 73.575. Foods with titanium dioxide are typically candies, pastries, chewing gum, coffee creamers, chocolates, and cake decorations.
Caramel color is derived from natural sources (sugar or corn) is a natural coloring ingredient, Food safety authorities around the world continue to recognize caramel color as safe and authorize its use as a color additive in a broad range of food and beverage products. Both the use of caramel color and the ingredients used in its production are regulated globally.
Food colors are substances added to food or beverages to impart color. They can be categorized into natural and synthetic colors, each with its unique characteristics and applications. Natural colors, derived from plants, fruits, or vegetables, are gaining prominence due to the growing demand for clean-label products.
