Watson develops Edible Glitter Nature Colors.
Watson Inc. has debuted a line of Edible Glitter products to meet the growing demand for clean label, "natural" colors. Edible Glitter Nature Colors are made from gum arabic (the sap of the Acacia tree). Watson uses colors from a wide range of sources, including cabbage juice, algae, carrots, radish, turmeric and annatto.
Edible Glitter is used as a sprinkle, topping or inclusion. It can be used in confectionery products, baked goods, frostings and more. Edible Glitter Nature Color has the added benefit of being unflavored or flavor-neutral and contains no sugar, artificial sweeteners, fats or hydrogenated vegetable oils.
Edible Glitter is a unique, light-weight flake that provides excellent coverage as a topping, according to the company, allowing a 95% reduction in usage by weight (compared to typical sprinkles or "shots"). The light-weight flakes adhere readily to a variety of surfaces. In frosted baked goods, the amount of frosting required for adhesion of the topping can also be reduced substantially.
