Natural colors

Natural colors

In the spray drying of vegetable colors such as carrot juice extract or beetroot extract the standardization of the products is very challenging because of the harvest-related natural fluctuations.

Product information  

Depending on the quality of your raw material, we develop an individual recipe and control the production process accordingly. In this process, our long-term experience and analytical capabilities are needed in order to ensure that the specifications in terms of color value, solubility, sensory properties and powder structure of every charge are met within narrow manufacturing tolerances.

Important information: we produce these products exclusively for our customers. We do not sell coloring vegetable extracts/natural colors within the scope of our ingredients product range.


Coloring plant extracts are produced from fruits, vegetables and edible plants. They are used for the coloring of a broad range of food products. As Clean Label ingredients, they are in increasing demand as an alternative to the use of synthetic colors.


Depending on the type of your spray-dried product and your downstream processing requirements, we offer a broad range of packaging options. Commonly bag-in-box systems, bags or big bags are used. Of course we can also use the packaging materials you delivered. Together we could also discuss and develop the optimal packaging solution for your product. Please contact us for details.
