GNT Group has developed a new and improved range of EXBERRY® liquid and powdered red “Coloring Foods” that do not contain sugar ingredients. They offer higher color intensities and contain just two raw materials—all to help food and beverage manufacturers achieve shorter, cleaner ingredient lists.
Available globally, the new reds deliver colors that are 50% more intense, which means they can be used in lower dosages to achieve the same effect, resulting in reduced cost-in-use. All are derived from fruits and vegetables grown by GNT’s select group of dedicated farmers.
The new EXBERRY® reds range includes shades such as “Vivid Red,” “Purple Plum,” “Veggie Red” and “Brilliant Pink,” made from fruits and vegetables including carrots, blackcurrants, radishes, blueberries and sweet potatoes. All are suitable for vegetarians and vegans, kosher parve approved and halal compliant.
“These improved powdered and liquid reds highlight how we are always looking to evolve our EXBERRY® Colors portfolio to deliver optimized appearance and performance at a lower cost without sacrificing quality,” says Sonja Scheffler, GNT product manager.
EXBERRY® Colors are obtained from fruits, vegetables using gentle, physical processes such as pressing, chopping, filtering and concentrating. The products retain the characteristic properties of the source material and the concentrates are not selectively extracted. Consequently, they qualify for cleaner and clearer labelling declarations. Made with GNT’s own innovative processes, they can impart almost any color shade to foods and beverages and are ideally suited for industrial use.
To ensure the highest level of quality and year-round availability, GNT controls the entire EXBERRY® supply chain, with cultivation and harvesting monitored by GNT’s agricultural engineers.
