Sensient Colors LLC offers an advanced emulsion technology for natural colors that combines multiple oil- and water-based natural colors to provide a complex color matrix in a single delivery system, thus achieving new natural color shades that were previously unattainable. The technology can lessen package staining, reduce color bleed and allow for lower usage levels, according to Sensient. It can also minimize off-taste flavors that are sometimes associated with natural colors. The water-based emulsions can easily be incorporated into any application where water is available including beverage, dairy, confection, baking and processed food applications. Oil-based natural colors can be incorporated where oil is available, including icings, compound coating, baked and processed foods.
