Sensient Colors expands aluminum-free options, offers new shades and oil-based dispersions

Sensient Colors, LLC, a St. Louis-based business unit of Sensient Technologies Corp., has enhanced its Microfine technology and expanded its natural color alternatives. Developed as a natural replacement for synthetic dyes and aluminum lakes, Microfine powders are a major evolution in natural colors for applications including dry-mix beverages, compressed sweets and confectioneries and powdered food applications.

Sensient Colors also continues to advance its natural color spectrum and has recently expanded the shade range for Microfine powders using new technology and innovation. The expansion includes shades from lemon yellow to burnt orange, as well as vegetable juices that provide purple to blue shades. Sensient also has developed a unique green olive shade that is suitable for plating on dry blends and dispersing in fat-based systems.

Using innovative technology, the Microfine line now includes oil-based dispersions that act as a vehicle to deliver color in fat-based systems. Microfine dispersions are a natural color solution to prevent clumping and aid in color incorporation, increasing productivity and accuracy. Microfine powders and dispersions both deliver a bright, intense shade combined with enhanced stability features for natural color solutions.
