Consumer-preferred carrot extract
April 25, 2014
Carotenes supplied by carrot extracts, offered by Kalsec, color foods naturally. In a recent survey reported by the company, 80% of consumers expressed a preference for “carrot extract” on the ingredient label vs. “beta-carotene.” The extracts readily replace Yellow No. 5 and No. 6, mixed carotenoids and synthetic beta-carotene. The extracts are available with Durabrite stabilization technology for improved shelf life.
