Paste Colors are manufactured by blending powder Dyes or Pigments into a variety of FDA-approved carrying agents (such as glycerin, propylene glycol, dextrose, sucrose, water, vegetable oil, etc.) to produce a uniform, viscous color concentrate that is preferred for many color applications.
Paste Colors can be made using:
- Natural Dyes and Pigments
- FD&C Dyes and/or Aluminum Lakes
- Certified Organic Dyes and Pigments
- ColorGlo™ Pearlescent Pigments
Paste Colors are required when it is necessary to keep the color in position as it is being worked into the food or candy. Typical applications include taffy, hard candy, and cake decorating.
Paste Colors are preferred in applications where using a water based product is undesirable.
