Natural colors for savory products

Canned soups, condiments, noodles, sauces, and meats are traditional comfort foods. These products must meet the consumer’s expectations in terms of both flavor and color.

At the same time, the savory market is embracing the modern ‘clean and clear’ label approach, making natural ingredient lists increasingly important.

With hundreds of shades available, our natural colors made from edible fruits, vegetables, and plants are the perfect addition to ensure savory applications reach their full potential.


Cured meats and processed meats such as cold cuts have a long history of using color to deliver a more appetizing appearance. However, both manufacturers and consumers now increasingly seek healthy options with natural ingredient lists.

EXBERRY® Coloring Foods can deliver a clean-label solution to enhance these products’ natural coloration. They can also be used to color the breadcrumbs on coated products.

GNT’s experts can provide full technical support to find the food coloring solution you require.
