The use of natural mixed carotenes (Caromin® and Carosol™) as food and drinks coloring substance has gained wide acceptance. It imparts a shade of yellow to orange color and is commonly used in the fat and dairy processing industry to standardize the color of margarine, butter, ghee, and cheese. It is also a preferred food colorant alternative to replace synthetic colorants in the beverage industry.

Partnering with the Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC) at booth number 1P21, Floor 1 (Overseas Pavilion) World Expo, Carotech will showcase a series of ingredients from Tocomin® natural full spectrum palm tocotrienol complex as well as Caromin® palm mixed carotenoids for applications in functional food and drinks as well as natural colorant.
