Natural Decorating Food Colors

Brand: India Tree

Why muck up home made goodies with artificial colors? With India Tree's vegetable-based Natural Decorating Colors you don't have to. Combine just three colors—red, yellow, and blue to create a full spectrum: Yellow + Red = Orange; Yellow + Blue = Green; Blue + Red = Purple, Lavender, and Violet.

Important usage notes:
  • With one package of coloring, we have decorated four large batches of cookies over the course of a year, and still have more color left. Kept in the fridge, these colors last quite a while — we've found them to last one full year past the manufacturer's "best by" date. The yellow does separate, but a forceful shaking will mix it back together.
  • Natural food colors are generally not as intense as artificial, so it may take some experimenting to get used to working with them. The red especially tends toward pink rather than true red.
  • Test in a small amount of your frosting before coloring the whole batch. Start with just a few drops and add more as needed.
  • Please be aware the yellow can impart a turmeric flavor (because it is made from the spice turmeric). In our own cookie frosting projects, we have noticed that this flavor dissipates by the next day.
  • These colors are not intended for egg-dying. They just don't stick to the shell.
  • Working with natural colors, you can still have fun making beautiful, edible works of art! We'll post a photo gallery soon. Send irene@naturalcandystore.com photos of your favorite natural decorating projects and we'll add them to the gallery when it's ready.

I am so happy to have found these. My daughter becomes hyperactive and also her behavior changes with artifical colors. These are great for coloring icing and even drinks. My daughter wanted Gatorade to drink during her softball games. I finally found colorless gatorade but she was a little disappointed because it looked like water. Now I just add a couple drops of this and it looks like the colored gatorade. I am so happy to have found this website.

We have been using these colors for over 2 years now, and I find them easy to use. I would really recomend them to anyone trying to eliminate the toxic artificial dye from their diet. All our friends are shocked how pretty my treats are when I volunteer to bake, since they know that we are on an all natural diet, and always ask how the goodies are so colorful! Natural does not have to be drab!! Use in icing for cakes and cookies, and I even use them very concentrated ss "paint" glaze for fancy Easter egg cookies.
