Crystal Clear Colours 2.0

Natural, bright colours made from carotenoids as unique replacement for tartrazine and other artificial azo dyes.

In the past, the only way to achieve a ‘warm orange’, ‘shining yellow’ or ‘soft yellow’ in clear beverages without affecting the taste and stability of the beverage was by using artificial colours. Today Döhler’s Crystal Clear Colours offer a unique and natural replacement for artificial colourants like tartrazine, quinoline or sunset yellow.

Crystal Clear Colours 2.0 are based on natural colouring principles such as lutein, beta-carotene and paprika extract. Thanks to the use of uniquely, plant-based raw materials, the colours are suitable for vegetarian and vegan products. With this extended range of natural, Crystal Clear Colours, Döhler is reinforcing its breakthrough in the development of carotenoid-based colours for clear beverages. The colours are developed through intensive research and using an innovative formulation technology, allowing vibrant, shining, natural orange and yellow tones with a balanced sensory profile and the highest stability, especially for clear beverages.

With Döhler's innovative Crystal Clear Colours 2.0, you benefit from:

  • bright carotenoid-based colours
  • ideal replacement of artificial colours
  • a crystal clear appearance
  • natural, vegan colour formulations
  • the highest level of colour stability

Choose from a special portfolio of shining colours and make your beverage stand out from others on the market.

An intensely coloured product look for clear beverages!

Döhler has developed a range of natural, crystal clear colours through intensive research and development. These colours boast superior sensory properties in the finished product compared to other clear carotenoid-based colours currently available on the market. They integrate perfectly into the product concept – harmonious and crystal clear – and do not create any noticeable aftertaste in the application. Crystal Clear Colours are also characterised by outstanding stability with regard to light, heat and various pH values, making them perfect for use in a wide range of applications. This is why Döhler’s innovative crystal clear formulations of lutein, beta-carotene and paprika extract are the ideal natural replacement for the artificial azo dyes like Tartrazine (E102), quinoline yellow (E104) or sunset yellow (E110). In clear beverages in particular, such as still drinks and water plus beverages, these shining colours offer a wide range of options for making the products stand out from the others in the beverage aisle.


Our broad product portfolio of natural colours ranges from colouring vegetable and fruit concentrates to natural colours as well as colour emulsions and even to Crystal Clear Colours for a wide range of beverage and food applications.
