Synthetic food colours are produced industrially in compliance with Commission Regulation (EU) No 231/2012 laying down specifications for food additives listed in Annexes II and III to Regulation (EC) No 1333/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council, which set forth the purity criteria for food additives.

They can be manufactured to a high degree of purity, with high colour strength and consistent quality, and are used in foods, cosmetic body care products, washing and cleaning agents and medicines.

Compared with the colouring foods and the natural colours, synthetic food colours offer better stability in respect of heat, light, pH-range and in the presence of other ingredients such as alcohol, preservatives, etc. Additional advantages lie in their

(and therefore the small quantities needed), neutral taste and (in most cases) a minimum shelf-life of five years.

Our synthetic food colours are kosher and halal-certified and have to be declared using their E-number and/or the product name.


All synthetic food colours are water-soluble.
