More consumers are embracing vegetarian, vegan or flexitarian diets. For plant-based meat analogs, manufacturers are attempting to achieve the appearance of real meat to make the product more appetizing. This includes the appearance of the product on the shelf, as well as the way it looks after cooking. 

For meat analogs, Kalsec Inc. offers a clean label, natural beet powder. While cooking, the product maintains a rich red color on the inside and browns on the outside, offering broad appeal to the consumer. 

Kalsec scientists create blends of colors using beet, annatto and paprika to modify hues to look more appealing and do this based on customer needs and applications.
