Sun Chemical to Showcase Full Line of Food and Nutrition Products During IFT FIRST Expo

New Food Application Lab Shows Commitment to the Market

PARSIPPANY, N.J., U.S.A.  – June 5, 2023 – Sun Chemical’s Food and Nutrition Group will showcase its full lineup of natural colorants that can be used for a variety of food and beverage products during the IFT FIRST Expo in Chicago from July 17-19.

Visitors of booth #S2446 will learn about Spirulina, a blue-green algae that is an ideal supplement for a balanced diet and an increasingly popular functional food ingredient. Sustainably cultivated and manufactured in California for more than 50 years by Sun Chemical, Earthrise and DIC Corporation, spirulina can provide exceptional balanced nutrition and supports one’s immune system*.

Sun Chemical’s LINABLUE® Spirulina Extract line of products offers both liquid and powder form and a wide range of color values. DIC invented the spirulina extraction process 35 years ago and Sun Chemical is now a global leader in supplying LINABLUE Spirulina Extract to the food industry. Earthrise LINABLUE is Kosher and Halal certified, free of toxic microcystin, and manufactured with FSSC22000 certification.

The recently launched SUNFOODSTM Natural Colorants product line is a response to the ever-increasing demand for naturally derived colorants in the marketplace. Sun Chemical’s “Inspired by nature” campaign presents natural colors extracted from algae, vegetables and fruit, and formulated with its proprietary technology.

A new food application lab in Cincinnati has been built to specifically support the food and beverage market. Natural colorant offerings in food and beverage prototypes will be on display at the booth.

“Our new application lab shows Sun Chemical’s strong commitment to deliver natural colorants to the food and beverage industry,” said Sophia Jin, Business Manager Americas and EMEA, Food and Nutrition, Sun Chemical. “We’re excited to show how this newly added capability together with the expanded color portfolio will benefit our customers during the IFT FIRST Expo.”
