A variety of fresh colors on your plate is appetizing, but it’s doubtful anyone really craves technicolor foods – not to mention it signals the use of harmful additives! For your next special occasion – from baking the next round of class cupcakes or birthday cake to decorating festive holiday treats – here’s a solution from a natural, pioneering brand (brought to you by the family team that is eco-kids®) that will appeal both to your healthful and allergy-sensitive guests. This all-natural, gluten-free food coloring will get the point across without having to ingest the chemical additives typically used. Pigments are achieved with the use of all-natural plant, fruit and vegetable extracts and available in 6 colors: blue, green, pink, orange, brown and yellow. Blue, for example is obtained by using gardenia extract; to make green, curcumin , a yellow shade, is added. Only organic ingredients are used without any additives, animal products or numbered dyes. Go ahead and offer the use of these to your local baker as well…it’s a smart idea to have a variety of colors in-house and available if you decide to enlist a third party to bake for your next event. *Decorative accents (i.e., sprinkles using sugar with the colorings) are also available.
Sidenote: May be used with vegan cream cheese or other plant-based spreads for a vegan frosting. Moms: Also great to color natural home-made play dough!
