TIPS FOR USING THE COLOURS
Hopper Natural Colours are pH sensitive and work best in slightly acidic environments. If you are using alkaline ingredients such as eggs and milk you may want to add a some lemon juice, citric or tartaric acid (all natural ingredients). The colours that are most affected are pink, purple and particularly the cherry red – it goes pinky purple. We recommend testing the colours in a planned mixture to ensure desired colour can be reached prior to any important event.
Please also note, that colours will fade during baking and the colour may alter due to the heat and pH of the product. We do not recommend using them in baking products without experimenting first. If you are intending to make a rainbow cake, please seek out a recipe that has been found to suit the use of natural colours. Not all recipes will give you the desired effect.
We do recommend storing the product in the fridge or freezer to ensure stability in extreme temperatures and to maintain colour intensity. Best before date is only a guide, we recommend using your judgement as to whether you wish to continue using product after its best before date.
The product can be frozen and thawed many times over. We recommend using your judgement in whether to use after the best before date. Defrost to room temperature prior to use.
Natural Food Colours are suitable to be frozen and defrosted repeatedly, as required. Product remains a liquid even when stored in freezer.
