Capsule colour line from natural ingredients
Capsugel has created a line of natural colourants for capsules available for the Americas region. The palette of 16 natural capsule colours uses natural ingredients, such as caramel, riboflavin and carmine. These natural dyes come from a variety of sources. Caramel is a brownish colour produced through heat treatment of corn syrup or sugar. And riboflavin is an orange-yellow compound in the vitamin-B complex that naturally occurs in foods such as vegetables and milk. To add further product differentiation, these colours can be made opaque when combined with titanium dioxide, a naturally occurring mineral. The colours can also be given a pearled effect when combined with all-natural Candurin pigment.
