AvoColor® is the initial product offering of Persea Naturals LLC.
AvoColor® is a potential yellow-orange-red food color additive that addresses the growing needs of food manufacturers for natural food colors.
The various hues of AvoColor® cover a significant percentage of the color needs of the food industry. The company is also testing the ability of the product to produce brown caramel colors.
AvoColor® has performed well in its initial testing, demonstrating stability to temperature, acid, light, and oxygen exposure, water solubility, and no impact on aroma and taste.
Persea Naturals expects to manufacture AvoColor® in a concentrated liquid and dry forms for sale to existing color suppliers for inclusion in their palate of colors.
AvoColor® benefits from its utilization of source material – avocado seeds – that have limited alternative uses.
