GNT to showcase organic Coloring Foods at Sana Bologna

12 August 2019

GNT will highlight its range of certified organic Coloring Foods at the SANA expo (6-9 September, Bologna), with a special focus on their benefits for confectionery.

SANA is a leading international trade fair for organic food products. GNT (exhibiting at Booth A44, Hall 29) will be showcasing its EXBERRY® Organics range of Coloring Foods, which help manufacturers meet the growing global demand for organic colors.

GNT’s EXBERRY® Coloring Foods are obtained exclusively from fruits, vegetables and edible plants using gentle, physical processes such as pressing, chopping, filtering and concentrating. They are not classed as additives but foods with coloring properties and therefore qualify for cleaner and clearer labelling declarations.

Additionally, products in the EXBERRY® Organics range are EU organic certified and meet the requirements of the EU organic regulations. Colors in the portfolio currently include blues, reds, yellows, oranges and purples.

With the number of organic confectionery launches having doubled in the first half of this decade1 there is a growing need for manufacturers to use organic colors. At SANA, GNT will be highlighting three confectionery concepts colored with EXBERRY® Organics (high boilings, pectin jellies and gelatin jellies).

Additionally, GNT will demonstrate the benefits of the EXBERRY® Organics range in cereal bars, beverages and savory products.

Ivano Fiori, Managing Director of GNT Italia, said: “All the colors in our EXBERRY® range are sourced from edible fruits, vegetables and plants, helping manufacturers meet clean label requirements. Additionally, there is growing demand for completely organic products, as demonstrated by the importance of the SANA event. Although the confectionery sector is not traditionally associated with health, manufacturers are increasingly launching products with an organic claim, and we’re delighted to be able to support them.”
