Put to the test.
The consumer demand for natural colors in food and beverage products is increasing, however, consumers still want to see the bright and vibrant colors they associate with specific flavors and food types like fruit bases/preparations . While this can be challenging for natural colors like carmine, beet and carrot that are not stable in extreme temperature, light and pH conditions, this is where our lycopene derived reds, ResilientRed included, standout. Formulated and tested to ensure they provide the beautiful, true to fruit hues consumers expect, our superstable shades help create the visual appeal and taste perception that drives purchasing behavior.
When compared to no color and carmine options, ResilientRed A shines with a stable, strawberry hue and no color migration into the yogurt layer over a 31 day shelf life.
Color consistency and migration stability aren’t just important in fruit preparation products, but also in surimi seafood where consumers desire vibrantly hued outer coatings. Using the Delta E system to measure the level of color variation visible to the naked eye, we tested ResilientRed A against Carmine & trace paprika over 91 days.
Showcasing stability in beverages, ResilientRed A puts on quite a show giving strong strawberry, rhubarb and strawberry, and summer fruit flavor perceptions through coloration. True to all our lycopene-based colors, ResilientRed A works in synergy with ascorbic acid to provide enhanced stability and a great fit for functional and fortified beverages.
