Natural Food Colors

Natural food colour is a dye, pigment or any other substance obtained from vegetables or minerals that are capable of coloring foods or drugs. Sources like seeds, fruits, vegetables, grass, beet root, and turmeric are some of the natural sources from which colours are extracted.

Another very important characteristic of the natural food colors is that they are safe to use as food additives. Since they are natural derivatives, they are free of any harmful side effects. Natural food colors are popularly food additives that can be found in everyday consumption products. Our natural food colors are produced under extreme hygienic conditions and are available at most competitive price.
