Apocarotenal (or trans-β-apo-8'-carotenal) is an orange-red colored pigment found in citrus fruits and green vegetables. It’s ideal for use in foods like processed cheese and beverages – and compared to certain natural pigments, offers you ease-of-use and superior color stability. DSM's vast assortment of color choices can be formulated into your applications (singly or mixed). They are tailor-made to meet your exact product specifications and address common challenges of supply, cost, quality, application and regulatory requirements. And they are available in liquid and powder form - depending on your target application.
