Chlorophyll and chlorophyllin extracts are vibrant green natural food colors that are available in oil and water-soluble forms. These colors are extracted from fescue grass that is grown in the UK and traceable back to the field in which it was grown. It is often stabilized with copper, which results in enhanced vibrancy and color shade. It can be used in a wide variety of confections such as lollies and gummies, as well as ice cream and pet food. Versions sourced from alfalfa are also available for use in citrus-based dry beverage mixes in the US.
