GNT launches natural colour range for savoury foods
The GNT Group has extended its portfolio with the launch of Exberry Savoury Solutions, a natural colour range for savoury products.
Paul Collins, director of international sales and marketing, says, “With this unique range, we are making the savoury market significantly more natural – and are strongly enhancing visual appeal. In other categories, fruit and vegetable concentrates are already becoming the industry standard.
“The savoury market, however, is still mostly coloured by spices and additives. Now, manufacturers in the industry finally have the opportunity to leave additives such as carmine, caramel or copper chlorophyllin behind, without having to compromise on brilliance and variety, stability and shelf-life.”
The savoury range can be used in all applications ranging from meat and meat analogues, UHT and instant soups, wet and dry mix sauces to dips and dressings as well as pickles and seasonings. Since they are available as powder or liquid, they are suitable to meet any requirement. During handling, there is no staining of process equipment, which significantly facilitates production processes.
All Exberry Savoury Solutions are produced exclusively from common vegetables and edible plants through pressing, chopping and filtering. No chemicals or organic solvents are utilised. All concentrates are free from allergens, GMO and palm oil and suitable for vegetarian, kosher and halal food.
Collins adds, “Savoury manufacturers who want to be ahead of their competitors must find ways of responding to the growing consumer demand for clean and simple ingredient lists. As colour is one of the major factors in a purchase decision, they cannot make compromises on the visual appeal of their products. With our savoury solutions, we enable producers to overcome these challenges and take the next step towards new colour concepts, while going natural at the same time.”
