Consumer surveys, ingredient innovations and a distribution agreement all are demonstrating why more processed foods and beverages companies are choosing to use naturally sourced red and other colors. Prinova, Carol Stream, Ill., in April said it had become the exclusive distributor of lycopene-based and beta-carotenebased colors from Lycored in the United States and Canada. Prinova cited Mintel data showing more than a third of U.S. consumers have indicated they are interested in "free-from artificial color" claims.
