Red and Red Orange

Orange is a secondary colour, created when combining yellow and red. Colours can all vary by lightness (closeness to black or white), hue and chroma (saturation).

DDW offers many natural alternatives to synthetic orange and red colours. Examples of raw material sources serving as building blocks for food and beverage colours in the orange to red range include red cabbage, red radish, beet juice, cochineal, and more.

For the colour red, DDW offers many natural colourant options. Consider beets or anthocyanins.
