Lake Food Colors
We are one of the leading names in the field of offering Lake Food Colors. These are water insoluble form of colors that are used in food applications. Helping in achieving brighter colors, the complete range of Lake colors is made from primary food colors that meet the standards of appropriate food authority. These colors are produced by adsorption of Water Soluble dye on hydrated aluminium substrate that renders the color insoluble in water. The end product achieved is colored either through process of dispersion of Lake into product or through coating on surface of product. Speaking generally, Lake colors are more stable I comparison to corresponding water-soluble colors, thus producing colors that are suitable for products that contain.
  • Oils and fats
  • Products lacking sufficient moisture to dissolve colors

Here, one needs to foresee that pure dye in Lakes does not co-relate to color value/coloring ability of Lake as Lakes are pigments and the coloring is achieved through dispersion of tiny color particles. Here, the more finely ground color particles the more effective color would be. Our expertise lies in offering high color-value by ensuring.
  • Minimum particle size
  • Minimum degree of variance

As coloring property of lakes is more dependent on fineness of lakes than pure dye present, this makes it important to test parameter of particle size to understand the quality and price ratio as greater fineness of Lake has benefit of using less color in an end product, thus resulting in savings in cost.

Here, our expertise lies in providing our customers high color value by offering a product of extreme finesse.
