Using Durabrite® stabilization technology along with careful selection of high-stability pigments, we develop light and heat-stable natural colors that replace synthetic ingredients in confections. Combining this expertise and technology with close attention to processing conditions creates effective natural coloring solutions for the confection industry.


We offer a full line of water-soluble, acid-stable colors.


We provide a wide range of high-stability natural colors that maintain the vibrancy your confectionery products need.

Kalsec® Vegetone® Vivid Red provides increased heat processing and storage stability over standard red beet colors.  As shown, the efficacy of stabilizers during the processing of hard candy. Product colored with Vegetone® Vivid Red beet color shows improved color expression (A) whereas the Control red beet colored product (no stabilizers) shows a bluer appearance(B).




Kalsec® antioxidants deliver improved oxidative stability in high oil- and fat- based chocolates and crème fillings. The benefits are increased shelf life and reduced rancid odors and flavors, creating opportunities for more stable, high-quality confections.
