Sensient Colors, LLC, St. Louis, a business unit of Sensient Technologies Corp., introducesDustPro NXT natural color powders, an innovative product line that extends Sensient’s industry-leading natural color portfolio. DustPro NXTsignificantly reduces dust levels, while improving color solubility compared to traditional natural color powders, according to the company.

Sensient’s research and development team created DustPro NXT to prevent color particulates from sticking together, improve pouring capabilities and minimize dust accumulation. When added to water, it dissolves rapidly and reduces mixing time. DustPro NXT also has a greater shelf life and lower shipping costs than liquid natural colors, says the company.

DustPro NXT natural colors can be used in beverage, dairy, baking and processed food applications. A vivid, full-color spectrum is available, including customized colors to meet specific shade requirements.

“The DustPro NXT product line gives our customers a new natural color alternative,” says Mike Geraghty, president, Color Group, Sensient Technologies Corp. “While these natural color powders minimize important dust and cross-contamination concerns, they also have the extra benefits of extended shelf-life, reduced clean-up time, and easier shipping. We see our natural color science quickly closing the gap with synthetic color technology every day, and Sensient works hard to create easy, compatible, turnkey color solutions to advance the natural colors market.”
