Spirulina colour is extracted from a blue-green algae that occurs naturally in freshwater and marine habitats. It has a long history as a food in many countries. It provides a “true blue” colour option for foods and beverages without any green or purple undertones. DDW offers a standard powder form of Spirulina as well as a liquid form with enhanced stability to light.
Typical Applications for Spirulina
The FDA now allows this blue natural colour 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.
