Most of us are aware of the dangers and issues with artificial coloring and how they can affect humans and endanger our health. Artificial colorants are everywhere, even if you are not aware of it. Did you know that artificial colorants are made from chemicals such as petroleum, coal tar and acetone to name a few? They cause havoc with our health and especially the health of our growing children. If you are aware of the dangers of these artificial colors, you might already use natural dyes for your baking etc.

There are various products on the market now that are made from natural ingredients. One of them is the India Tree Natural Decorating Colours Set. The set comes with primary colors yellow, red and blue. Given that these are natural dyes, the brightness of the colors will vary from what you might expect or are used to from artificial ones. The colors in general are more subdued – the red is not artificially bright red, but more reddish/pink pastel. What you get are natural earthy colors. You can still create lovely looking icing and frosting by adding drops of this natural dye.

I think it is important to know that these colors are made from natural and highly concentrated vegetable colorants instead of synthetic and artificial chemicals that can cause harm to our health. Avoiding artificial colors is especially important for kids with certain food allergies and autism.


These liquid decorating colours are made from highly concentrated vegetable colourants and contain no synthetic dyes. They produce icings in soft pastels and rich jewel tones found only in nature. Combine the three colours to create a full spectrum of colours.
Set of 3 bottles, ¾ ounce/21 grams each
Colour/Pattern: Red, yellow, and blue
Ingredients: Blue: glycerin, vegetable juice, filtered deionized water; Red: beet juice, citric acid; Yellow: glycerin, turmeric, deionized water
Allergens: Contains no corn syrup or synthetic dyes

NOTE: Two year shelf life, but best before May 2014 (as the product contains no additives or preservatives, the intensity of the colours achieved will degrade over time) or keep refrigerated to prolong shelf life. The blue colour produces purple-blues to green-blues when added to frostings and icings, depending on the pH (more acid tends to purple; more alkaline tends to green) and other factors.
