Titanium-Free Food Color Alternatives Market to Witness a Healthy Growth during 2019-2029
The growing trend for natural and organic food color is resulting in shift from titanium dioxide, a synthetic ingredient, towards titanium-free food color alternatives and extracting food colors from alternative natural sources. Natural food color sources include astaxanthin, beta carotene, annatto, and anthocyanin. Other ingredients that can be used as an alternative to titanium are silica dioxide and calcium phosphate in food colors.
Increasing consumer preference for food products free from synthetic colors is resulting in the growing demand for titanium-free food color alternatives. Reformulation of food products by food companies is rising to replace synthetic colors with natural colors. This is leading towards the development of titanium dioxide alternatives. Moreover, considering widespread food-related use of titanium dioxide, there is a growing pressure to review sustainability of studies supporting risk assessment of titanium dioxide particles as food additives.
