ColorFruit® is our range of transparent anthocyanins and carotenes, especially suitable for beverages, but also very used in confectionery, fruit preparations, dairy and ice cream. ColorFruit® shades are bright and range from yellow, orange, red and pink to purple and are excellent replacers of artificial yellows and reds. ColorFruit® offers excellent light, heat and pH stability.

Extracted from fruits of the oil palm tree, Elaeis guineensis, natural carotene is the richest natural source of mixed carotenoids. The fruit extract is a mixture of alpha, beta and gamma carotenes. It has traditionally been used by Pacific islanders in local cuisine.
Use: Over 600 different Carotenoids exist in nature they play a vital role in the process of photosynthesis. They are also the pigments which give fruits, vegetables, algae and all manner of plant life their colour. They are good antioxidants as well.

| ||paracoccus carotinifaciens extract containing carotenoids|
the general name for a group of fat-soluble pigments found in green, yellow, and leafy vegetables, and yellow fruits. they are aliphatic hydrocarbons consisting of a polyisoprene backbone. One of a class of tetraterpenoids (C40), formally derived from the acyclic parent, psi,psi-carotene by hydrogenation, dehydrogenation, cyclization, oxidation, or combination of these processes. This class includes carotenes, xanthophylls and certain compounds that arise from rearrangement of the skeleton of psi,psi-carotene or by loss of part of this structure. Retinoids are excluded. (ChEBI) The term carotene is used for several related unsaturated hydrocarbon substances having the formula C40Hx, which are synthesized by plants but cannot be made by animals. [Wikipedia]
