GNT has extended its range of green EXBERRY Colouring Foods with a new powder made from turmeric and spirulina.

The new Shade Bright Green Powder is designed to deliver bright, bluish-green shades in dry and powdered applications such as bakery mixes, confectionery and seasonings.

Based on the concept of colouring food with food, the powder is created from edible, plant-based raw materials using only traditional physical processing methods. As a result, GNT says it is considered to be a food ingredient rather than an additive in the EU and many other parts of the world.

Available alongside the liquid-based EXBERRY Shade Jade Green, it means manufacturers can now deliver bluish green shades in almost any application while maintaining clean and clear labels.

Maartje Hendrickx, Market Development Manager at GNT Group, said: “Our new EXBERRY Shade Bright Green powder opens up further opportunities for manufacturers to create vibrant green products with clean ingredient lists. It’s made from well-known, on-trend raw materials using physical processing methods with no chemical solvents, providing an ideal option for today’s demanding consumers​.”

EXBERRY Shade Bright Green Powder is pH-independent and is approved for use in the majority of countries worldwide. As turmeric is naturally sensitive to light, GNT says opaque or non-transparent packaging is recommended for optimal performance.
