Among the different forms of carmine, the ones that are used the most in the meat industry are the lacquer and water-soluble colorings.
Between the products we offer, carmine is the most popular one in the food industry, specially in cold cuts production. Its application depends both on thermal resistance and the desired shade.
Applying this type of color in cold cuts depends on each customer’s application requirements, as well as the expectations he has of the final product, specifically in terms of the color. All our carmine varieties can stand 130 degrees Celsius, and they offer a wide range of colors, which vary from pink to violet.
Customers can choose from our different varieties: lacquer, water-soluble, liquid or carminic acid. However, we really recommend water-soluble carmine for cold cuts since it is simple to handle and apply: it can be used as soon as you get the product without the need to go through other processes. As one of our most wanted products, this type of carmine can be used in beverages, ice-creams, spices, dairy products (such as strawberry yoghurt), among others, as well as in the beauty and pharmaceutical industries.
Other carmine forms also work well in different products, but they need to go through a process of elaboration prior to its application.
