Ice cream with Spirulina based blue and green colors

Ice cold blue & green possibilities with Spirulina

Market challenge

A natural blue color or coloring foodstuff has been missing in the color palette in many regions, leaving ice cream manufactures mainly with synthetic blue possibilities such as Brilliant Blue, Patent Blue and others. 

With spirulina approved in e.g. Europe and North America, there are now many new possibilities for not only natural blue, but also natural green and purple ice cream and ice pops. 

Chr. Hansen’s solution

Chr. Hansen has a range of spirulina-based formulations targeting various ice cream and water based ice products in order to achieve the bright blue, green and purple shades in the frozen treats.

The benefits of Spirulina

  • Bright blue shade in ice cream and water based ice pops
  • Possibilities for e.g. green, purple and brown blends
  • Excellent as replacement for brilliant blue or in a blend to replace spinach & nettle or Cu-chlorophyll
  • Concentrated product formulations to reduce dosage
  • Approved in North America (Color: Spirulina) and EU (Spirulina Concentrate)
