Natural Color List

Natural Blue Color

I. Vegetable Derived Natural Blue Color. (21 CFR 73:250, 73:260. 73:169, 73:170 and E163)

Many vegetables and fruits display beautiful colors, due to naturally contained colorants, mainly anthocyanins, chlorophylls,

carotennoids and betanin. Anthocyanins give red (radish, red cabbage and strawberry) purple (purple sweet potato, purple

potato, purple corn, and red cabbage), black (black bean, black rice, black carrot, black currant) and blue (blueberry, concord

grape). Chlorophylls are usually found in green leaves and stems. Carotenoids exist in carrot, pupkin, yellow sweet potato,

red and bell peppers. While betanin is responsible for red color in beet and amaranth. Many of these naturally existing colors

in vegetables and fruits can be used as food colorants.

Anthocyanins is a water soluble substance and have a common molecular structure:

The R groups may be -H. -OH or -OCH3, and differ from sources to sources. One of the important characteristics of

anthocyanins is pH sensitivty. As pH changes from acidic, neutral to alkaline, the following consequences may occur:

1. Color change from red, purple to blue. green or colorless.

2. Color stability reduces

3. Color intensity changes.

By carefully select the anthocyanin sources and carefully controlling pH, we produce blue colors from vegetable:

II. Beta Carotene Yellow/Orange Colors (21 CFR 73:95, E160a)

Beta Carotene is a very important member of carotenoids due to its function as a precursor of vitamin A. It is abundant in nature such as carrots, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes. However, these vegetables are not widely used to extract beta carotene due to economical reason. The commercially available beta-carotene from nature is extracted from algae, Dunaliella Salina, for example, or from fermentation nowadays. Being a non-polar compound, beta carotene is a lipophilic, and therefore is a water insoluble substance.

 

 

 

This property limits its application for fatty/oily foods only. However, advanced emulsification technologies have successfully converted it to water dispersible versions, enable it can be widely used in water based foods including beverages. However, some beta carotene emulsions available in market form rings on beverage bottle necks after storage, due to separation of oil-soluble beta carotene from beverage water. This may be caused by insufficient emulsification in processing or poor stability of the emulsions. We have successfully created a beta carotene emulsion which can be used in beverages without ringing/separation. This emulsion also has improved light and heat stability, giving extended shelf life of the beverages.

As a member of carotenoids, canthaxanthin is a strong antioxidant. It was reported the strongest oil soluble antioxidant found in nature. It plays the role of free radical-scavenger and prevent cell walls from damage by free radicals.

Natural Yellow Colors

I. Beta Carotene Yellow/Orange Colors (21 CFR 73:95, E160a)

Beta Carotene is a very important member of carotenoids due to its function as a precursor of vitamin A. It is abundant in nature such as carrots, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes. However, these vegetables are not widely used to extract beta carotene due to economical reason. The commercially available beta-carotene from nature is extracted from algae, Dunaliella Salina, for example, or from fermentation nowadays. Being a non-polar compound, beta carotene is a lipophilic, and therefore a water insoluble substance. This property limits its applications. Advanced emulsification technologies have successfully converted it to water dispersible versions, enable it can be used in water based foods including beverages. However, some beta

carotene emulsions available in market form rings on beverage bottle necks after storage, due to separation of oil-soluble beta carotene from beverage water. This may be caused by insufficient emulsification in processing or poor stability of the emulsions. We have successfully created a beta carotene emulsion which can be used in beverages without  ringing/separation. This emulsion also has improved light and heat stability, giving extended shelf life of the beverages.
