When working with plant-based colors, different applications can require different formats to ensure the best results. Exberry OD products are liquid-based colors made by dispersing small particles – created through a unique multi-stage milling process – in sunflower oil. As a result, they can achieve a homogenous color effect in fat-based applications, including ice cream coatings, fat fillings for biscuits and pralines, compound coatings for cereals and cookies, and seasoning mixes savory snacks and fat compounds for chocolate decorations.
Jana Reckter, product manager at GNT Group, said, “Fat-based applications have historically proved challenging for plant-based colors, but our expanded Exberry OD range means manufacturers now have more options than ever to create spectacular products with clean and clear labels. Our new Exberry Shade Pink – OD is made from both fruit and vegetables and offers a wonderful pink hue.”
