Blue Hue

Blue Hue
Historically, there have been few options for blue natural colours in foods and beverages. Anthocyanins can provide blue hues at a higher pH, and have water soluble attributes, but are not suitable for a wide range of applications.

The FDA now allows spirulina to be used in a wider range of applications, including confectionery, frostings, ice cream/frozen novelties, dessert coatings/toppings, dry beverage mixes, yogurts, and gelatin. Spirulina provides a pure blue color with no green or purple undertones. However, spirulina can be blended with other DDW natural colours to form a wider range of green, and purple hues. DDW offers a liquid and powdered versions spirulina.
