Adding a scoop of these powders to you snack bar, cereal, crackers, or soup will not only enhance the color and flavor, but boost the nutritional content — And that’s something that your customer wants.
In this article, we are going to take a closer look at how dehydrated powders, like beet powder, became a favorite among healthy consumers and how you can stay ahead of the trend by incorporating these into your food manufacturing.
Artificial Coloring Red 40
Unfortunately, the food industry is known for using additives and artificial dyes in virtually every type of product — from candy and cereal to sauces and meats. The most popular FDA-approved dyes are Red 40, Blue 1, and Yellow 5, but in total, there are currently nine FDA-approved artificial food coloring agents, including:
- Red 3
- Red 40
- Blue 1
- Blue 2
- Orange B
- Yellow 5
- Yellow 6
- Citrus Red 2
- Green 3
According to data from the FDA, the use of artificial food coloring increased from 12 to 68 mg per person per day from 1950 to 2012.
One thing is becoming clearer and clearer, as the food industry evolves: consumers do not want to consume artificial ingredients. This includes dyes and food coloring like Red 40. Consumers, especially younger shoppers, make it a habit to turn a package over and read the label before buying a product.
There is strong scientific evidence that being exposed to these dyes can lead to health problems, particularly amongst children. For example, the link between artificial food coloring and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder symptoms are well documented.
At Seawind, that’s why we use the approach of nothing added. Our beet powder will make your pasta bright purple. Our spinach powder will color your smoothie bright green. Our tomato powder will give your soup a warm harvest orange color that pops. And, our pumpkin powder will bring you back to your cherished holiday memories, while adding nutrition, not chemicals.
