Black Carrot

 

Black carrots are a source for natural food colouring that originate from Turkey and other regions of the Middle East and Asia. The nutrients in black carrot extract that give them their colour are anthocyanins which have several health benefits, such as the potential for treating neurological dysfunctions like Alzheimer’s disease. They can also be beneficial when treating cancer.

Anthocyanins from purple carrot are more stable over a wider pH range than anthocyanins from other fruit or vegetable sources, making them ideal for use in yogurts, beverages, fruit bases and confectionary.

The peach to strawberry red colour that black carrot extract produces can provide a natural alternative to synthetic food colourings such as FD&C Red 40.
