February 2012/Prepared Foods -- Sensient Pharmaceutical Coating Systems recently introduced Spectrafine natural colors, an innovative colorant that expands shade range and application options for nutraceuticals. Spectrafine is a natural product that delivers plating characteristics commonly found in FD&C lake pigments.

It is a natural solution that behaves like a lake in multiple applications. The product aligns with consumer demand for ingredients that promote health and wellness and provides natural ingredients. Spectrafine offers increased ease of use compared to dyes, and end-users will notice the clean flavor it imparts in dry blends, powdered drink mixes and chewable tablets, says the company.
