Colorful Savory Solutions, Naturally

03 June 2018


The call for natural ingredients is getting louder throughout the savoury foods market. Increasingly, consumers are putting items containing synthetic or over-processed ingredients back on the shelf. Artificial colourants are particularly disliked, so manufacturers of savoury products are looking for completely natural ways to colour their food.

Meet the need for naturalness with EXBERRY® Colouring Foods

The natural alternative to additive colours, EXBERRY® Colouring Foods are simply concentrates of vegetables, edible plants and fruit. We have over 400 different shades available, including a new savoury range composed of vegetables and plants alone.

Dedicated to savoury

In order to stimulate innovation in the savoury products market, GNT has developed a new range of colours for a series of savoury applications. We can offer you the precise shade you need for anything from chilled meats to soups, sauces, dips, dressings, condiments, snacks and seasonings.

Colour makes savoury products more appetising

We eat with our eyes. Colour is the first attribute considered by consumers, accounting for 75% of product assessment.1 What’s more, 85% of the actual purchase decision is based on colour.2 Manufacturers can use the power of colour to gain consumer preference, differentiate products, or even mask the impact of processing.

GNT’s EXBERRY® Colouring Foods are made from fruits and vegetables that are physically processed with water to result in a liquid concentrate (or spray-dried into a powder). Based on recognisable ingredients, they can simply be described on the label as a concentrate of whichever vegetables they are composed of.
