Lake Colors (Water-insoluble)

Lake colors are used where dyes are unsuitable due to their solubility in water.

Lake colors are one of the brightest and most consistent lake colors available in the industry. Various tests are performed at our laboratory to ensure the batch-to-batch consistency of our products.

Lake Colors are available in one major forms:

Powder: This form is ideal for any dry application. A small use of lake imparts a very bright Color in a dry mix

Lake Colors   Lake Colors Graph
The photograph above demonstrates an analysis of a batch of Food Colors Lake Colors using Digital Particle Size Analyser. This equipment gives reading in microns of the range of particle size and distribution of the pigments, permitting Food Colors to measure from d 0.1 to d 0.9, as well as a maximum particle size limit.

The result of a typical analysis is demonstrated in the graph reading above. Through measurement of every batch, Food Colors are able to assure customers of a similar particle size profile, which leads to consistency and uniform performance every time.

The graph indicates a clean and controlled particle size range without a 'tail' of larger particles which often impact upon the dispensability and thixotropy of the pigment, additionally indicated is that 100% of the pigments are below 38 Microns in size, which falls well within the specification required.
