Paprika Oleoresin

What is Paprika Oleoresin?
Paprika Oleoresin is a natural food colorant used to obtain a deep red colour in any food that has a liquid/fat phase. It is derived from the liquid extract of the fruit of genus Capsicum Annum L, obtained by extraction with hexane. The oleoresin is a slightly viscous, homogenous red liquid with good flow properties at room temperature.

Paprika oleoresin is available in many different levels of coloring strength, from product with 20,000 up to 140,000 standard colour units (from ASTA Colour 500 up to 3,500).
