In recent years, the colours industry has undergone significant change, as a result of increasing consumer demand for natural, rather than synthetic food colours. The Food Colours Handbook details some of these changes within a concise, easy-to-use framework. With all chapters contributed by industry experts, the book contains reviews of synthetic, nature-identical, and natural colours.
The following topics are covered for each colour discussed;
* Physical characteristics

This guide is an invaluable and authoritative source of reference on the commercial use of food colours for food technologists and other food-industry professionals, and contains a review of worldwide legislation allowing readers to gain an understanding of regulatory issues relating to food colouring in different countries.
