From reading recent comments it sounds like this product has changed from when I reviewed it. My package lists the ingredients as Blue: Deionized water, glycerin, red cabbage. Red: Beet juice, citric acid. Yellow: Deionized water, glycerin, curcumin. More recent customers claim it now has chemicals. If you are interested in natural food coloring, this doesn't sound like the product for you. Hopefully Amazon will get the listing straightened out.
We avoid artificial ingredients, so after attempting to color icing for Chirstmas cookies with fruit juice and beet juice last year, I bought this food coloring to try out this year. After reading the other reviews, I didn't have high expectations and was only hoping that it would be easier than making my own (and it was).
But I was able to get rich, vibrant colors, not simply pastels. Certainly they weren't the bright artificial colors you get with petrochemicals, but they were far from the pale pink and yellows I was expecting.
My first experimentation was with small batches of icing - only using a few tablespoons of powdered sugar and milk and 2-5 drops of coloring. The red came out a magenta, not Barbie pink, but definitely not red, either. The blue was kind of a greyish blue. The yellow was the most like you would expect. I had also thought that the colors wouldn't mix well but I made green by mixing the blue and yellow and a nice purple by mixing blue and red.
As one reviewer noted, they don't have as long as a shelf life as non-natural colors. I bought mine in October and they are dated 5/2011.Read more ›
That said, these colors are not nearly as vibrant as I hoped they would be, but given they are not chemical colors I can't complain too much. My food allergic daughter gets to enjoy fun colors now, so I am happy.
I ordered this because my son has severe allergies to all chemicals. If it weren't a serious matter for him, I would not be spending this kind of money. I carefully read the ingredient list on the product page and for the most part, all of the colors were listed as containing deionized water, glycerin, and depending on the color, a type of vegetable color. Sounds safe enough. Imagine my horror today when I opened the package and read the ingredients on there. The yellow, in particular, has Polysorbate and PROPYLENE GLYCOL!!!!! This is an ingredients in antifreeze and paint and is derived from petroleum! This is no better than regular food dyes you can buy anywhere. This could have been very serious for my son if I had just took the ingredient list on the product page at face value and just used these. Now, I have to scramble to find another truly all natural set of colors before his birthday party. I also wanted to use these for cookies for Halloween, but who knows if I'll get new ones by then. Amazon's site says this is not a returnable item too! However, I called them and explained the situation, and indicative of the fact that they realize how serious this could be, they told me to just keep the item and they refunded my money. This is the worst case of false advertising I think I've ever seen considering what I said above, that most people willing to spend this much for all natural coloring have the potential to be seriously, and adversely affected by these chemicals!
