Aluminium Lake

These are water insoluble form of water – soluble colours used in food applications, producing brighter and more vivid colours.

Neelikon offers the complete range of aluminium lake colours made from primary food colours meeting appropriate food legislation namely that of USFDA, European Community, JECFA/CODEX, Japan or India.

Aluminium lakes are produced by the adsorption of water soluble dye onto a hydrated aluminium substrate rendering the colour insoluble in water. The end product is coloured either by dispersion of the lake into the product or by coating on to the surface of the product.

In general lakes are more stable than the corresponding water-soluble colours, producing brighter more vivid colours and are most suitable for products containing oils and fats, or products lacking sufficient moisture to dissolve Colours.
