Company description

California Natural Color is a leading supplier of fruit and vegetable concentrates, natural colors, and grape seed extract for the food, beverage, and nutraceutical industries. With the support of a strong supply chain beginning in vineyards and fields combined with state-of-the-art technologies for processing and packaging, we can offer unique product solutions. These capabilities and an unwavering commitment to quality resulted in California Natural Color becoming one of the world’s largest supplier of red anthocyanin colors.

California Natural Color offers colors from natural sources in both liquid and a unique crystal format. Our colors are OU Kosher, Halal, and Non-GMO.  In 2010, the company began using a proprietary technology converting fruits and vegetables into dry, crystallized colors.  These unique crystals differ from typical spray dried colors because they are carrier free, have fast solubility, are less dusty, offer an exceptionally high color concentration, and contribute zero calories to a finished formulation. They are highly stable and suitable for a variety of applications including beverages, confection, bakery items, meat analogs, and more.
