Q: Hello! I am looking for dye free coloring to mix in white candy melts. Can I put powder directly into candy melts or can I mix it with oil instead of water?
Answered by Natural Candy Store, August 1, 2016 at 09:13:32 PM EDT.
A: Hi Coreen, Here's an answer from the colors manufacturer about using these colors in melts: "These are water soluble colors, that said, some colors work fairly well, Yellow, Green, Spring Green, Hot/Super Pink, Sky Blue, Blue, Purple, Orange. To make the colors really pop in white chocolate or compound coatings, hydrate the color with the least amount of water and induce into the chocolate with paramount crystals as a carrier." Hope that helps!

Q: are all the ingredients in the dyes non gmo?
Answered by Natural Candy Store, January 3, 2018 at 03:54:50 PM EST.
A: Hello! Here are some more detailed guidelines from the manufacturer for using our natural food colors. To make a gel paste from your powder you will have to dissolve it completely. A good starting point is a 1:1 ratio one part water to one part powder such as 1 teaspoon water to one teaspoon powder). Some colors like TruColor Yellow may take more water to hydrate and each color may be just a bit different as to how it takes water depending on the actual source or plant the color was derived from. But a 1:1 ratio is a good starting point. Just remember the less water you use to completely dissolve the color, the stronger and thicker the gel paste will be. Completely hydrate the color first with the least amount of water possible and never add water directly to the jar. Mix your color in a separate container, a souffle cup or a silicone cupcake liner works well. It is important to make sure that the powder is completely dissolved by mixing very well using a stir stick or an icing tool (referred to as a booboo stick in Canada) and pressing and mixing the powder particles into the water. Test a small amount to make sure all the color is dissolved or you will see specks. When specks are present you may need to mix the powder more and add a small amount of water more (drips) and stir well until the color powder is completely dissolved before adding to your icing. When adding a natural color into icing or dough you may have to consider all of the other ingredients in your mixture and whether or not an acid is present or not. The acid content or pH level may change the color of your icing. Yellow will become brighter and dark brown will become darker by simply adding a squirt of Lemon Juice. These options and variations allow the decorator to create a variety of easily attainable shades with simple natural household items including baking soda and or lemon juice. Hope this helps!

Q: How much should I use in a desired recipe? Should I use it by a teaspoon?
Answered by Natural Candy Store, January 3, 2018 at 03:17:19 PM EST.
A: Hi Brendan! Here are the guidelines provided by the manufacturer: "The starting point ratio for the Gel Paste Powder is 1:1 (One part water to one part powder). Use less water to make the color thicker or add more water to make the color thinner. Make sure the color powder is completely dissolved before adding to icing or fondant or you may see specs of undissolved color." So the amount of color you use depends on how large of an area you intend to color and how bright you would like the color. We suggest experimenting on a small portion before you use larger amounts. Hope this helps!

I'm on a Keto lifestyle- Are those Keto Approved? are there any Carbs? I want to make my own Jellow , is it possible?
Answered by Natural Candy Store, March 1, 2018 at 01:53:10 PM EST.
A: Hi Lina! Thank you for your question about Hot Pink Natural Food Color. We aren't Keto-lifestyle experts and these colors haven't been specifically "Keto Approved". However, 1 gram of color would only add 0.458 g of carbohydrates to any recipe you use. In addition, 1 gram of color would add 0.01 grams of protein and 0.0005 grams of fat. You can absolutely use this color to make jello! With 100% white grape juice (or other light-colored juice, as to not cover up the Hot Pink color), grass-fed gelatin & water, you'd have beautiful Hot Pink Natural jello! :) If you have any questions specific to your recipe, please feel free to email us at email@example.com or call 800-875-2409.
