Colored Beads For Visual Effects In Food Applications
  Project Overview:
The customer wanted AVEKA to develop an edible colored bead for use in food. In some applications the beads would be immediately visible to the consumer and have an eye catching effect. In other cases, the beads would be unnoticeable until the color is released by an application specific trigger.

AVEKA Solution:
AVEKA responded to this customer's needs by using proprietary prilling technologies to supply them with food grade beads containing edible colorants. AVEKA was able to generate highly customized lots for which the color and particle sizes were tailored to the specific application indicated by the customer – bubble gum, muffins, pasta, cookies and more.  Some lots were further processed to apply a pigmented coating that would conceal the true color of the beads.  When heated, the interior color would be released to alter the color of the food or cause an image to appear.

Project Points:
  • Product Purpose: Color Change in Food
  • Process: Prilling, Particle Coating
  • Material Created: Dry Flowable Microcapsule Powder
  • Industry: Food
