Yellow to Orange Hues

DDW offers many natural colouring alternatives to synthetic yellows including annatto seeds, saffron, turmeric, Cochineal, carrots, wheat, corn, pepper, sugar cane and caramel colour.

Colours can vary by lightness, hue and chroma. Lightness describes the closeness of the colour to black or white. The hue describes how the colour of the object is perceived within a colour family. The chroma describes the saturation of a colour, or separation from grey. Yellow is a primary colour, whereas orange is a secondary colour between yellow and red. Yellow to orange hues are warm colours.
