The GNT Group has launched the Savoury Solutions line to give a desired shade to all types of savoury applications, so as to enhance a food’s visual appeal. The savoury market can now be coloured naturally instead of with spices and additives like carmine, caramel, copper or chlorophyllin.

Offering a range of savoury colours from yellow and orange to red, pink, brown, blue, or even green, the solutions can be used in all applications ranging from meat and meat analogues, UHT and instant soups, wet and dry mix sauces to dips and dressings as well as pickles and seasonings.

Available as powder or liquid, they are also suitable to meet any requirement. During handling, there is no staining of process equipment, which significantly facilitates production processes.
