Carotenoids provide dye alternative

By Nicholas Robinson+


Manufacturers of energy drinks and flavoured waters can maintain drink transparency, without compromising taste or quality, claims DSM.

The ingredients specialist has launched a series of ‘nature identical’ colorants as part of its new clear carotenoids solutions to allow manufacturers to forgo azo dyes, which are synthetic.

Jens Birrer, DSM global marketing manager, explains: “Our solutions will allow customers to create brightly coloured beverages that are crystal clear, with neutral taste and superior stability, providing an appealing alternative to the azo dye.”
