Natural candy with real juice may utilize fruit-based anthocyanins to intensify color.

DDW offers a proprietary, oil dispersible technology for naturally derived coloring that can be used in sanding and decorative sugars for your candy or confection product applications. This oil dispersible technology is innovative because it allows for water soluble coloring to be added to oil-based systems or used for plating to ensure even distribution.
The emulsion coloring improves the oil dispersibility of water soluble food coloring that can be added to lipid or fat systems. DDW’s oil dispersible technology allows for new possibilities for naturally derived hues such as browns, pinks and purples — especially as an alternative to synthetic lakes.
