Exberry develops new range of red colouring foods
GNT Group has developed a new and improved range of Exberry liquid and powdered red Colouring Foods that are free of added sugar. The range offers higher colour intensities and contain just two raw materials, helping food and beverage manufacturers achieve shorter, cleaner ingredient lists.
Available globally, the new reds deliver colours that are 50% more intense, which means they can be used in lower dosages to achieve the same effect, resulting in reduced cost-in-use. All are natural and derived from fruits and vegetables grown by GNT’s select group of dedicated farmers.
The new Exberry reds range includes shades such as vivid red, purple plum, veggie red and brilliant pink, made from fruits and vegetables including carrots, blackcurrants, radishes, blueberries and sweet potatoes. All are suitable for vegetarians and vegans, Kosher parve approved and Halal compliant.
Sonja Scheffler, product manager at GNT, said: “These improved powdered and liquid reds highlight how we are always looking to evolve our Exberry Colouring Foods portfolio to deliver optimised appearance and performance at a lower cost without sacrificing quality.”
Exberry Colouring Foods are colouring ingredients obtained from fruits and vegetables using gentle, physical processes such as pressing, chopping, filtering and concentrating. The products retain the characteristic properties of the source material and the concentrates are not selectively extracted. Consequently, they are not classed as food additives but foods with colouring properties and, therefore, qualify for cleaner and clearer labelling declarations. Made with GNT’s own processes, they can impart almost any colour shade to foods and beverages and are ideally suited for industrial use.
To ensure the highest level of quality and year-round availability, GNT controls the entire Exberry supply chain, with cultivation and harvesting monitored by GNT’s agricultural engineers.
