Sensient Colors LLC has enhanced its Microfine technology and expanded its natural alternatives to replace synthetic colors for dry and fat-based food applications. Developed as a natural replacement for synthetic dyes and aluminum lakes, Microfine powders offer natural colors for applications including dry mix beverages, compressed sweets and confections, and powdered food applications. The company recently expanded Microfine’s color portfolio to include shades from lemon yellow to burnt orange as well as vegetable juices that provide purple and blue shades. Sensient also has developed an olive green shade that is suitable for plating on dry blends and dispersing in fat-based systems. The Microfine line also has expanded to include oil-based dispersions that act as a vehicle to deliver color in fat-based systems. Microfine dispersions are a natural color solution that can prevent clumping and aid in color incorporation.
