Heat Stability Challenge

Tomato lycopene offers a range of attractive natural red hues for food manufacturers. However, when exposed to a variety of elements, particularly heat processing, lycopene is susceptible to breaking down, resulting in uneven, faded color tones. With our proprietary emulsification technology, San-Ei Gen has developed lycopene colorants resistant to sterilization so that manufacturers can achieve even, resilient tones in processed foods and beverages.

Easy Application in Beverages

Lycopene crystals have been known to be insoluble in beverages, easily precipitating and forming rings. San-Ei Gen’s tomato lycopene series instead disperses uniformly in liquids – even without stirring – for easy and attractive application in beverages.
