Kalsec® is focused on providing innovative solutions to the dynamic environment of the beverage industry. With over 50 years of experience and a global presence, our applications professionals understand how to address your unique beverage product and processing challenges.
Collaborating with our Sensory and Applications experts to select the correct pigment or coloring system will bring your beverage product the ingredients needed for success. Natural colors are ideal for a full range of beverage products including carbonated, still, juices, yogurt/dairy drinks, alcohol, sports and energy drinks.
Selection of the optimum color formulation depends on the beverage being colored. Natural yellow and orange colors from carrot and paprika are generally oil soluble in nature and particular care is required in creating the proper water solubility of these pigments. A collaborative approach between your product developers and Kalsec®'s technical team is the most effective method in creating a successful beverage coloring system.
Pink to red hues are easily achieved with the use of blends of anthocyanin pigments. We can help your customize your hue by varying the relative amounts of anthocyanins from different fruit and vegetable sources.
