Natural colorants are a healthy and sustainable alternative to synthetic colorants, which often contain chemical ingredients and can be harmful to health. In addition, natural colorants have a wide range of shades and hues, making them ideal for use in a variety of applications and water ice pops is one of them.
One of the main applications of natural colorants is in the water ice pops industry. Many companies are adopting these colorants to give their popsicles an attractive, natural look without having to resort to synthetic chemicals.
Natural colorants can be obtained from plants, fruits and vegetables, and are completely safe to consume. Examples of natural colorants include betanin, which is obtained from beets and used to give a soft pink color to popsicles; carmin, which is obtained from cochineal and used to give a bright red color; and annatto, which is obtained from annatto seeds and used to give a yellow color.
In addition to providing an attractive appearance to popsicles, natural colorants also have a number of health benefits. For example, beta-carotene is an important source of vitamin A and has antioxidant properties, while citric acid can help improve digestion and strengthen the immune system.
