Why Use Powder Food Color?
Food Color in Powder format is generally the best format for use in powder food products and is often the least costly of the food color formats. A little goes a very long way.
So why use anything else?
Many products (such as hard candy and taffy) require powdered color to be pre-dispersed in an appropriate carrying medium before introduction into the candy. Add powder dye to a batch of hot candy and the result will be powder specks in the finished product.
Powder is very, very messy! It is dusty and drifts everywhere. Unless your facility has sophisticated dust control system in place, wash down walls, and floor drains , Powder Color is generally not recommended if other formats of color can be used.
Because powder color is so concentrated, it is easier to err in applications which could results in thousands of pounds of your product being scrapped.
