Synthetic Food Colors for Raw Meat Products

Synthetic colors are often applied in raw meat applications. However, pH, myoglobin content, and packaging systems may all influence the color application in raw meats.

Synthetic Food Colors for Cooked Meat Products

Cooked meat products mainly include processed mammal and poultry-derived meats (beef, pork, venison, lamb, chicken, turkey, duck, goose, etc.). From raw to well-cooked, complex chemical reactions (such as browning reactions and/or myoglobin breakdown) occur during the meat cooking process. While cooking the meat, the pH, muscle type, myoglobin concentration, water-holding capacity, and the heating process can significantly affect the color performance. To answer the above, Idacol has a complete solution of synthetic food colors for cooked meat applications.

Manufacturers of Synthetic Food Colors for Canned Meat Products

Canned meat products include whole muscles, meat stews, luncheon meat, sausages, sauces with meat pieces, and paste products. They are generally prepared by sealing the product in a container and thermally processed to destroy spoilage microorganisms, the canning process is used to extend the shelf life of meat products. The pH, heat treatment, solid: liquid ratio, and interactions with food ingredients can all affect the color performance and create challenges for applying colors in canned food applications. To brighten the appearance and replenish the loss of color from the heating process, Idacol possesses a range of synthetic food colors for canned meat applications.

Synthetic Food Colors for Meat Analogues
