Natural Colors / Our Colors / Cochineal - Carmine
Cochineal colors are naturally sourced substances that have been used for centuries to deliver vibrant red, magenta and orange hues in a wide range of food applications.

These susbstances are obtained from carminic acid, a chromophore produced by Dactylopius coccus, commonly known as cochineal. This insect grows on certain varieties of cactus that are found in the semi-arid regions of Peru, Bolivia and Chile.

Our  colors of the cochineal line are specially and carefully prepared formulations that were developed in order to offer a wide spectrum of red, magenta and orange hues for a variety of applications and a wide pH range, showing superior thermal and light stability.  They can be water soluble, water dispersible, oil soluble or oil dispersible and can be used in powder or liquid form.
