Cleaner, better, trendier – natural colours at the heart of the food experience revolution

Sense Colour paper

The food and beverage industry has evolved faster than ever over the past few years. Consumers are also increasingly turning their backs on synthetic ingredients and looking for “better-for-me” products. 

To satisfy the modern palate and inspire social media trends, food and drinks not only have to taste good, they also have to deliver multi-sensory food experiences that do good and feel good for body, mind and planet.

      With consumers eager to experience its mesmerising hues, the colour blue has taken the food industry by surprise. Incredibly, the vibrant pigmentation comes from a natural foodstuff called spirulina, a blue-green algae cultivated worldwide.

      The Sense Colour Ultimate Blue Spirulina range by Givaudan could not be in a better position to respond to the growing demand for sensory surprise and renewed creativity, as well as natural and appealing wellness foods.
