ChromoRed is a novel, natural red pigment produced in our 2-step fermentation process using our proprietary non-GMO fungal strain. ChromoRed is produced in high yields, allowing for cost-competitive pricing compared to existing natural colors (carmine, betanin, beta-carotenes, and anthocyanins) that are extracted from natural sources using chemical solvents. ChromoRed is compatible with most dietary needs, including kosher, halal, and vegan diets, and allows for colorisation of food & beverage products from light pink to dark red.
ChromoRed's competitive technical properties
In terms of technical properties, ChromoRed is more pH and heat stable than existing natural colors, and its high water solubility allows it to be used in a broad range of applications, ranging from food & beverage over cosmetics to textiles. Importantly, ChromoRed is entirely tasteless and blends well with all tested matrices and colors.
