Colouring foods refers to food ingredients that contribute to the colouring properties of foods and are derived from traditional foods such as vegetables, fruits and plants. They undergo careful processing to ensure the preservation of the valuable ingredients from the natural raw material sources.

Opalis is Sensient’s range of natural extracts and concentrates derived from edible vegetables, fruits and plants that deliver colour to enhance food products.

By carefully selecting high-quality raw material and applying advanced processing technology, Opalis provides a range of special formulations with good stability and colouring efficiency, which provide advantages for various applications. The range is designed to respond to consumers’ expectations and manufacturers’ needs; for example, with clean labels, authentic ingredients and health and wellness.

As the food and drink industry continues to shift away from artificial colour, natural colour sources will continue to provide clean-label value to many brands’ products.

Due to the specialised processing, the Opalis products are natural ingredients that maintain essential characteristics of the source material, which is designed to strengthen the consumer’s connection to nature and perception of authenticity.

Many of today’s consumers turn to their everyday food and drinks to provide them functional benefits for health and wellness.

The Opalis range is suitable for water-based and oil-based systems that include solutions (clear), dispersions (cloudy), emulsions (clear and cloudy), powder and agglomerates.
