edible glitterWatson Inc. introduces a line of Edible Glitter products to meet the growing demand for clean labelling and for what are considered “natural” colours. Edible Glitter Nature Colors is made from gum arabic (the sap of the Acacia tree) and colour. Watson uses colours from a wide range of sources, including cabbage juice, algae, carrots, radish, turmeric, and annatto. Edible Glitter is used as a sprinkle, topping, or inclusion. Edible Glitter can be used in confectionery products, baked goods, frostings, or anywhere you want to add eye-catching colour. Edible Glitter Nature Color has the added benefit of being unflavoured or flavour-neutral and containing no sugar, artificial sweeteners, fats, or hydrogenated vegetable oils. Edible Glitter is a unique, light-weight flake that provides excellent coverage as a topping, allowing a 95 per cent reduction in usage by weight (compared to typical sprinkles or “shots”). The light-weight flakes adhere readily to a variety of surfaces. In frosted baked goods, the amount of frosting required for adhesion of the topping can also be reduced substantially. www.watson-inc.com
