A special session, chaired by Pr Reinhold Carle, and dedicated to Natural Pigments & Colorants 2015: Food & Beverages Applications is organized during Malta Polyphenols World Congress

The aim of this symposium is to present the last advances and innovations in the field of natural pigments. The industrials from Food & beverage look to replace synthetic colorants with more respectful natural pigments. However many barrers remain in term of extraction, stabilization and industrial applications.

Pr Reinhold Carle will chair this special session dedicated to the different scientific and industrial issues:

  • Technical solutions for the stabilization and formulation of pigments
  • Techniques for encapsulation
  • Effect of processing on natural pigments
  • Chemical / biochemical characterization of pigments from natural origin
  • Extraction from conventional /unconventional sources
  • Alternative sources of pigments (bacteria, fungi, microalgae and cyanobacteria...)
  • Bioactivity, functionality and healthy properties
  • Impact of natural pigment on consumers



Practical Cases and Food & Beverages Applications

The Scientific Committee will select some practical applications of natural pigments in food and beverages.
