The natural food colors from the American company TruColor are now also available in Europe. The company TruColor has focused on developing brilliant and natural food colors, which are manufactured with various fruits, vegetables, roots, seeds, and minerals. In this process, the nature-given colors differ from common food colors, seeing as how they’re sold in a dry powder form. As opposed to artificial colors that are water-based, mold and bacteria do not form in these powder paints. In addition, the paints do not contain any artificial preservatives or dyes based on mineral oil.
The TruColor paints can be easily established by mixing them with water (e.g. 2 teaspoons of water mixed with 1 teaspoon of powder) and then evenly apply it from an airbrush or paintbrush without any undesirable paint-splatter. The advantage is that the paints are extremely opaque, last longer, and do not lose the strength of their paint once they’ve been sprayed onto dry surfaces. TruColor offers a wide pallet of paint including over 20 color hues. Cake designers can select a dull finish (Paint & Airbrush Natural Powder) and a light shiny finish (Shine Natural Powder). Also available are the highly concentrated Natural Gel Paste Powder and the Natural Color Sanding Sugars.
Depending on the type of product, the paints are available in various package sizes (4.5 and 6 grams) for 6.95 €. In Europe, you can order the paints i.e. from the online shop run by Edwin Weimer at www.smallvisuals.com.
