20 Jul 2012 --- With responsibility at heart Sensient has developed a range of palm-free products which take full advantage of the natural properties and differences of palm oil vs. sunflower oil. Its innovative research and development team identified solubilization and encapsulation systems which do not depend on palm oil based emulsifiers, enabling Sensient to create an entirely new technological platform in novel palm-free products. Sensient offers solutions for shades from bright yellow to brilliant orange and red and green color hues. In this new range all ingredients are free of palm derived components, not simply the active pigment.
In extensive stability testing, the new palm free products proved to be very well protected against color degradation making them ideal for all major end application categories. From a coloring perspective, palm-free formulations for food and beverage products are an excellent alternative. Sensient Food Colors offers its new range with the full palette of palm-free solutions containing natural colors and coloring foods to meet the needs of the food industry.
