WEST HAVEN, CT--(Marketwired - March 31, 2017) - Watson Inc. is proud to announce the publication of a guide to natural colors. This twenty page guide is available for free download on the company's website on this page:

In recent years, consumer momentum has consistently been from artificial to natural. As natural products make their way onto the shelves in more stores, that momentum will only increase. While in the past natural colors were less intense and less reliable than synthetic colors, the natural colors of today are vibrant, consistent, enduring, and free from unwanted tastes.

This guide covers the basics of natural colors, the history of food colors, and the benefits of coloring food. It then explores specific natural colors available to manufacturers.
