Robert G. from Aiden's Snack Bar on 03/05/2020

We mix this food coloring with our vanilla custard to create a very bright pretty blue for our ice cream. The color is great and the food coloring doesn’t add a bad taste.

Maher T. from Purple Spoon on 12/16/2019

The color it gives off is good. Definitely like the size and price. Have been able to use it for all my food coloring needs.

Jennifer G. from Blissful Bake Shop on 08/12/2019

I have used the blue several times. I love it. It makes a nice lite blue with extra water and if you like it darker it looks good as well

Michell P. from True Grit Products on 06/13/2019

Sheila M. on 05/29/2019

I have been really happy with this blue food coloring. I’m just looking to achieve a baby blue color so I don’t need much. If you want that glowing blue color you will need to use a lot.

Jessie V. on 05/11/2019

This food coloring is awesome. It is a very bright vibrant blue. It has made my ice cream very photogenic. The blue really pops in the pictures

Michael W. on 03/21/2019

The color is strong but you need to pour so much of it in order to get the strong blue color everyone talks about. The concentration of the coloring is very poor. We purchased to add the blue coloring to our cookie monster milkshake, however, we had to add about an ounce of it for every 16oz shake. Too much liquid. I don’t recommend it at all. It is cheap all within good reason. Not a good value though.

Karla L. from Lala's Waffles Crepes & Shakes on 12/07/2018

Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.

Very strong coloring, not a strong scent like some of the other blue food colorings we've tried. Easy to mix into different ingredients and mix with other food colorings.

Kelly K. on 11/12/2018

The Blue Food Coloring - 1 Gallon is a great product we will be ordering more for our shops in the near future I am sure Blue Food Coloring - 1 Gallon

Herman H. from In-Stock Supply Inc on 11/09/2018

The blue food coloring is a great bulk buy and a terrific product for making our blue clues candy. The blue coloring is bold and lasts us a whole year. There is a ton of coloring in the bottle.

Ruby N. from Ruby's Retro on 09/13/2018

Do not purchase! This blue color is so dark and ugly. No matter how little we add it's just not your typical blue you'll buy in stores! It's really not worth the money.

This blue food coloring is the best for the amount you get as well as the price. It works excellent in many applications for food or bath and body also. Great product!

Eva L. on 07/22/2018

The Blue Food Coloring arrived promptly and was well packaged. The container that it came in seemed durable and the product itself was potent and effective.

Quan N. on 06/27/2018

Cheaper than buying in store. Nice color. Actually I think it's a little darker than Wilton colorings. Can't beat price. Just wish you could buy in other size containers like half gallon.

Christine A. from Forever On The Go S&S on 05/27/2018

This food coloring is very very strong! So use with caution or your customers will be walking around with stained blue teeth. We use one little drop to color our children’s blueberry drink and it turns the drink a nice sky blue. 3-5 drops will turn a 20oz drink dark indigo.

Jennifer B. from The Hungry Seagull on 05/22/2018


En Z. from Yamato on 04/17/2018

In love with this bright blue food coloring that is a great addition to our ingredient at our bakery. Great for dying cake batter and icings.

Rich M. from Round Bagel on 03/15/2018

Where has this been? I had no idea you could buy food coloring in gallon jugs. We use it for art classes and it is so much less expensive than watercolor!

Courtney G. from Free For All Baltimore, Inc. on 03/04/2018

1 whole gallon! save you so much money instead of buying the small packs from walmart. Works great and turns anything plus with just a couple of drops

Kady C. from N/A on 02/21/2018

Jerry C. on 02/08/2018

A great buy for a gallon of food coloring. It is a great quality and makes a really bold color cake batter or frosting. The blue is great for ocean scenes cakes.

Jo P. on 10/24/2017

This will last us a life time. We use it to color our Cotton Candy yogurt. The kids love it and always are asking their parents for the blue yogurt.

Glenn C. from Endeavor Business Group on 10/05/2017

This big bulk of food coloring is great to use if you had the other colors that come in gallons you can make a lot of colors just during those 4

Lalit P. from Foxland Market on 09/25/2017

Regal brand offers a great value food color in the large one gallon containers. The quality is great and the colors turn out awesome every time. The blue is very bold and bright and great for creating a ocean colored frosting.

Jonathan P. on 08/28/2017

This is a good liquid food coloring. It works well as egg paint. It gave cupcake batter a greenish tint and still appeared teal when gel blue was used to try to correct it.

Tonya L. on 11/25/2016

Natural food colorings - simple, environmentally friendly and healthy - Articles

Natural food colorings - simple, environmentally friendly and healthy 95% of the information a person perceives with the help of the eyes, and making a dish brighter means making it more attractive. So, the juicy burgundy color of borscht or a multi-colored salad definitely stimulates the appetite. It is on this that the demand for food coloring in cooking is based.

For thousands of years, people have successfully used the gifts of nature, extracting food colors from them. Now we have incomparably more opportunities for such research - let's see how you can prepare natural food colors at home and what requirements we have for them.

Requirement 1 - Natural dye

Exclusively natural materials - extracts, pomace and juices, decoctions and tinctures from seeds and fruits of plants, from leaves and bark. Animal materials are not used for food coloring due to their strong characteristic taste, difficulty in obtaining, and short shelf life.

Requirement 2 - Food coloring means edible

This requirement implies not only the edibility of the coloring, but also a minimum of its own taste. Ideally, the dye should be completely tasteless (onion peel) or add some zest along with the color (citrus zest or coffee). The taste of the dye should not affect the taste of the final product, but this is difficult to implement in reality - and a separate task when using natural dyes is the result of mixing flavors and aromas.

Requirement 3 - Coloring food

This requirement includes color fastness and invariability - at least for a short time, although natural dyes definitely lose out to synthetic ones in these parameters.

How to make natural food colors at home

The beauty of natural food colors is their availability. These are the foods that we eat almost every day, familiar and healthy, inexpensive and accessible. Beets, carrots, spinach, spices, bright berries and citrus fruits - this is our rich arsenal at home.

The answer to the question “what to make natural food colors from” is at hand in every kitchen.
We can use:
1. Fresh juices from colored products.
2. Crushed and fried their pulp.
3. Direct addition of fresh pulp to the final product.
Feel free to focus on the original color of a vegetable or fruit: if the beets are dark red, then we will not get an orange or green dye from it. Accordingly, green spinach will not give us a red dye, no matter what we do with it.
However, with natural dyes, the same principles of mixing paints apply as with watercolors, gouache or synthetic dyes. If you want orange dye, mix red and yellow. Need green - mix yellow and blue food coloring.

How to get red food coloring and food coloring pink

Sources that help us get red food coloring and food coloring pink are beets and fresh red berries (raspberries, lingonberries, cherries).
Contrary to popular belief, beets will not give us a rich red color - depending on the concentration, we will get shades from pale pink to burgundy. Grate fresh beets on a fine grater and simmer them in a small amount of water over low heat. When the beets are stewed and “give up color”, squeeze the liquid through cheesecloth or a fine sieve. For a more vibrant and long-lasting color, add half a teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
For a pure red, use freshly squeezed lingonberry juice, but don't forget its characteristic sour taste.
Raspberry will give various shades of pinkish and raspberry, cherry - darker shades of red.
If you use such natural colorants for cream, a few drops of juice will be enough to give an interesting shade.

Natural blue food coloring

A pleasant blue and blue color is obtained with blueberries, blueberries or red cabbage. It will be most convenient to crush blueberries or blueberries in a sieve or mesh colander and add the resulting natural blue food coloring to cream or dough.
Red cabbage juice gives an interesting blue or blue color. It is good to color boiled egg white with this juice and decorate salads with it.

Yellow food coloring

Carrots, sea buckthorn, turmeric, saffron, citrus produce sunny shades of yellow and orange. Carrots are the most affordable option: grate bright carrots on a fine grater and fry them over low heat in vegetable oil. Squeeze the resulting slurry through gauze or through a thick sieve.
Sea buckthorn juice can be added to creams or dough, it will give us the same cheerful yellow tint.
Turmeric can be found in any spice section, this is also a good option to get yellow food coloring. Pour a tablespoon of dry powder with warm water or alcohol, keep in a dark place for a day and strain. Turmeric is a budget option for saffron, it does not give such an amazing taste, but it works very well as a food coloring.

Green food coloring

Spinach gives us a soft green color. There are two options: - use freshly squeezed juice of leaves and stems - stew chopped spinach in water and then rub the gruel through a thick sieve.
Spinach green food coloring is often used to color dough.

Synthetic dyes and their invented harm

The consumption of dyes is growing every year, the requirements for the quality and safety of food colors are growing even faster - and manufacturers are simply forced to satisfy the needs of buyers.
Many synthetic dyes are based on natural dyes. So, for example, curcumin or carotene is almost identical in composition to natural ones. In addition, the quality and safety of synthetic food colors is controlled by the WHO International Commission; all permitted for use are included in the Food Code - a code of quality standards for food products and semi-finished products, which includes food additives.

Synthetic food additives are easier to use than natural ones, do not require preliminary preparation and special storage conditions, can be stored for a long time and definitely will not change the taste of cream or dough.
If you want to get not just pleasant shades, but bright natural colors, we offer you all types of food colors available today: dry, gel, liquid.

Proven manufacturers, guaranteed fresh and high-quality products, a huge selection of useful and pleasant little things for cooking - the supermarket for confectioners will do everything to make the cooking process a real pleasure for you.

What are natural food colors made of? Which food colorings are better

When we look at a delicious confectionery display case, our eyes widen. Still would! After all, what an insane variety of cakes and desserts exists in the world. We see multi-colored cakes, fillings, coatings, decorations… Some of them have their own color, some are tinted with dyes. At this moment, calm down! Confectioners use only food colorings - those that are safe to eat. Yes, you probably already know that. At the same time, there are a huge variety of dyes. And for each product and task you will need your own. For example, by chocolate is suitable for fat-soluble dye, for golden sheen you will need kandurin and so on. Every novice confectioner needs to study this topic thoroughly, as well as inventory selection questions and typical mistakes at the start . You can read more about different synthetic dyes in of this article . Surely at least once you thought about whether there is an alternative to "ordinary" dyes? So that it does not stain the tongues and has a natural basis?

Yes, there is another type of dyes - natural, we will talk about them today. We will tell you what they are made of, what are their advantages and disadvantages. The choice of natural dyes is one of the steps towards proper nutrition. If you're thinking about how to eat more mindfully, read our material on this.

It turns out that for the first time food coloring began to be used in antiquity. For example, the Greeks used turmeric for orange and cuttlefish ink for black. Now food colorings are very widely used in industrial food production. And they color food in order to make it more attractive. We, confectioners, appreciate dyes because thanks to them our candybars can fit into any holiday style!


The principle by which the naturalness of food colors is determined is documented in GOST: natural food colors are natural substances that were obtained from plant and animal raw materials. What is used as a raw material? Plant leaves and seeds, fermented plant products, vegetable and berry juices, spices, freeze-dried berries and fruits, geological materials and vegetable charcoal.
There is a classification of natural food colors depending on the substances contained in plants. These are carotenoids (yellow, orange, red colors), flavonoids, anthocyanins (red, purple, blue fruit color) and chlorophylls (green). The food industry certainly has its favorites. And many names - we are sure - will be known to you.



This food coloring is made from the root of turmeric, a well-known herbaceous plant in the ginger family. This spice has long been famous for its beneficial properties. In industry, curcumin is used to add bright yellow hues to a variety of foods: mustard, sauces, butter, cheeses, and, of course, drinks and confectionery. Since curcumin is only an extract of the turmeric root, it does not give its taste to products, being only a pigment. They can color icing, marshmallows, cream, biscuit and marshmallow .

And to get not only color, but also an unforgettable taste and aroma, you can add banana, mango, orange, pineapple powder along with curcumin to your confectionery products.


Produced from algae, tree fruits, flowers and leaves. This carotenoid is obtained from the leaves, flowers, fruits and buds of trees, as well as algae. Thanks to him, the products can be dyed yellow.


Do you know what it's made from? Of course, from carrots! And also from rose hips and leaves of some plants. By the way, this yellow-orange dye is fat-soluble.


Red pigment is made from the seeds of the fondant tree (it grows in the tropics of South America).


Found in tomatoes, guava and rose hips. The dye released from these plants gives the products a rich red color.


It is obtained from red pepper. It gives the products not only a red-orange color, but also the aroma of pepper, as well as pungency. Paprika is used in the preparation of smoked meats, cheeses, sauces and even confectionery.


This substance is isolated from beet juice, hence its second name - beet red. It is added to jams and jellies, sausages.


And here we have something interesting! A dye that is derived from carminic acid, and it is produced by ... female insects that live in Mexico. Red dye is used in the preparation of soda, wines, ketchups and sauces, meat products and baked goods.


This plant-based dye is used primarily in beverages, fish products, meats, but also in confectionery and even ice cream. His color palette is rich: from pale yellow to dark brown.


Fine barley juice powder. It has a slight grassy taste. Used to color marshmallows, cream, icing, meringue , icing and even biscuits.

Riboflavin (vitamin B2)

This is one of the important water-soluble vitamins for the human body, which is a yellow-orange crystals. Used to color sauces, mayonnaise, sweets and pasta.

Bamboo charcoal

Very fine black powder, odorless and tasteless. This universal dye is suitable for coloring icing, chocolate, bird's milk , marshmallows, as well as biscuits and creams.

Blue Spirulina

Produced from blue-green algae without characteristic aroma and taste. Perfect for coloring icing, cream, marshmallows, chocolate and mirror glaze, chocolate.


Made from fossilized natural mica. The dye has different shades: brown, green, pink, green, golden. It is used in the preparation of sweets, chewing gum, confectionery.

There are a lot of natural dyes! After all, nature is so diverse. Anthocyanin (from grapes and blueberries), chlorophyll (from the leaves of plants and algae), and indigo (from the leaves of tropical legumes) are also used to color food.

Shop Kondibox , by the way, has all of the above natural dyes, and even more. Come in and feel free to add your favorite colors to your basket! And for friends of our school, Kondibox gives a 10% discount on all orders using the promo code “BonBon”.


The main plus is obvious - they are natural, therefore, harmless to the body. At the same time, the useful substances of the products from which they were made remain in them. And this gives the products an additional taste and aroma. The main colors that can be made with natural dyes are blues, reds and yellows. And other colors are obtained by mixing these basic dyes in different proportions. "Playing" with the amount of dye, we can achieve almost any color in desserts and varying degrees of brightness.

The same mixing principles apply to natural dyes as to paints or synthetic dyes. To make orange, mix yellow and red. For green, mix blue and yellow, and so on.


These dyes are sensitive to changes in pH and light. Therefore, they are not often used in industrial production. In addition, their shades are not as bright as those of synthetic dyes . And the result can be quite unpredictable even with the same dye (it's all about naturalness, soil differences, etc.), which is extremely inconvenient for manufacturers. In addition, many natural dyes still have the taste of the plant from which they are made, so they can affect the final taste of the product. And in acidic environments, they are most stable: for example, in the manufacture of marshmallow and caramel .


Yes, absolutely. For example, based on beetroot, blueberry, pomegranate juice, berries, red cabbage, saffron or turmeric. If you want to take on this business, then without a doubt, focus on the original color of the vegetable or fruit!

For example, red and pink can be made from beets and raspberries, cherries, lingonberries. Grate the beets on a fine grater and simmer over low heat with a little water. When the beets “give up color”, squeeze out the liquid. To brighten up the color, add ½ teaspoon of lemon juice. A pure red color will give freshly squeezed lingonberry juice, but here it is worth remembering its sour taste. With raspberry you can get shades from pink to raspberry, with cherry - darker shades of red.

By the way, there is a dehydrator device that dries vegetables, berries and fruits, making them a dehydrated product. Dried in this way, the fruits can be ground into powder, which is used to decorate and color desserts.

A beautiful blue color is obtained from blueberries, bilberries. Crush blueberries or blueberries in a sieve, and use the resulting natural dye in a cream or dough.
