Black carrot extract from Kalsec acts as a natural alternative to carmine for achieving red hues in foods. Recent months have seen supply issues for cochineal/carmine, resulting in price pressures. And because of its insect source, cochineal cannot be used in foods certified kosher or halal. Black carrot extract provides food processors with a vegetable-based color that delivers consistent pink to red hues.
