The use of Carmin in Jams

Carmine is a natural red dye extracted from the cochineal, a small insect that grows almost entirely in southern Peru. Carmine has gained a very important position in the world market due to its innate properties that make it the best substitute for artificial coloring.
Carmine is considered one of the most stable natural pigments with respect to its resistance to heat and light exposure. Especially in neutral PH conditions, there are practically no alternatives that work equally well.
Thanks to its properties, carmine is perfect for use in a wide portfolio of products, most notably jams.
With the trend towards more natural consumption, jams have undergone an important change in their composition, decreasing the use of sugar in their preparation and replacing artificial colorants with natural colorants used to generate visual appeal. For this reason it is becoming more and more common to use carmine in jams looking for red tones.
