Stable nature-identical colorant for food and beverages
Canthaxanthin is an oil soluble carotenoid pigment with a characteristic orange-red color. It occurs naturally in many foods such as mushrooms, crustaceans, fish and green algae.
Nature-identical canthaxanthin is used as a colorant in food and beverages. It advantageously replaces FD&C dyes and helps food marketers in their transition to clean labels.
As an expert in the formulation of carotenoids, Divi’s offers nature-identical canthaxathin for coloration of a variety of foods and beverages. Both forms – microencapsulated beadlets and suspension – exhibit excellent performance in applications:
- Excellent uniformity
- Superior stability in both liquid and dry applications
- Consistent color shade in food preparations
Our canthaxanthin forms are Kosher/Halal certified, gluten-free, non-GMO and do not contain ingredients of known allergenic potential. They are suitable for vegetarian and vegan diets
A variety of applications
Thanks to our formulation expertise, we offer canthaxanthin forms which can be used in a wide range of applications. These include, but are not limited to:
