FOR A BETTER WORLD
Chromologics is a Danish biotech spin-out from the Technical University of Denmark. We have developed a fungal biotech platform for the production of novel, natural colorants.
Our proprietary fermentation process allows us to be first movers to introduce lab-grown food colorants to the market.
Our production is sustainable, scalable and cost-competitive. Unlike other existing natural colors, our colorants are not extracted from high value raw materials like fruit and vegetables, but produced by our wild type cell factory.
Our fungal strains are non-GMO and our pigments are compatible with most dietary needs, including kosher, halal, and vegan diets.
Sustainable colors made by nature.
ChromoRed is the first in a new generation of colorants. It is the food colorant of the future. ChromoRed is novel and unique. ChromoRed is natural. It will replace current natural red food colorants like carmine and betanin.
ChromoRed performs excellent over a broad range of pH values and under high temperature treatment. By using ChromoRed, there is no consumer restriction as our colorant is compatible with vegan, kosher and halal diets.
By using ChromoRed, your food product will look appealing every step of the way while helping for a more sustainable future. ChromoRed is produced by biotech. Unlike other natural colorants, the production of ChromoRed is independent of harvest seasons.
Due to its high color intensity, ChromoRed has a lower cost-in-use than carmine and betanin.
