Dyes, Pigments and InksVIDEO ON THE TOPIC: HOW TO DYE A SYNTHETIC WIG - Alexa's Wig Series #7
The use of color additives derived from natural sources, commonly referred to as natural colors, to color foods and beverages is increasing, and the use of synthetic color additives is decreasing. Major food companies are removing synthetic color additives from their products and replacing them with natural colors to appeal to consumer demand.
The U. Food and Drug Administration FDA defines a color additive as any dye, pigment, or other substance made or obtained from a vegetable, animal, mineral, or other source capable of coloring a food, drug, cosmetic, or any part of the human body.
The use of an unlisted color additive, the improper use of a listed color additive, or the use of a color additive that does not meet the purity and identity specifications of the listing regulation may cause a product to be adulterated and subject to FDA enforcement action.
The FDA classifies color additives as either certified color additives or color additives exempt from certification. Color additives exempt from certification are generally produced from plant, animal, and mineral sources; they do not require certification but must meet the identity and specifications described in 21 CFR part 73 see Table 2. Any interested person may petition the FDA to list a new color additive or a new use of a listed color additive. The petitioner must provide information on the identity of the proposed color additive; its physical, chemical, and biological properties; chemical specifications; manufacturing process; stability data; intended uses and restrictions; labeling; tolerances and limitations; analytical methods for enforcing chemical specifications; analytical methods for determination of the color additive in products; identification and determination of any substance formed in or on products because of the use of the color additive; safety studies including toxicology data ; estimate of probable exposure; proposed regulation; environmental assessment; and a reason why certification is not necessary if exemption from batch certification is requested.
This process may take months for a straightforward extension to years for a novel color source. A sample of each newly manufactured batch of a certifiable color additive must be submitted to the FDA to ensure that it meets the identity and specification requirements of its listing regulation.
This certification process is described in 21 CFR part The company requesting certification must submit to the FDA a four-ounce sample from each batch along with the name of the color additive, the name of the manufacturer, storage conditions, the use for which it is being certified, and the batch weight, on which the FDA bases its fee for certification.
Prior to certification, the batch cannot be used and must be stored separately from batches already certified. Upon receipt of the sample, the FDA analyzes it for appearance; purity total color content ; moisture; residual salts; unreacted intermediates; colored impurities subsidiary colors ; other specified impurities; and the heavy metals lead, arsenic, and mercury.
If the sample meets the requirements in the listing regulation for the color additive, the FDA issues a certificate for the batch that identifies the color additive, the batch weight, the uses for which the color additive is certified, the name and address of the owner, and other required information.
All color additives, whether certified or exempt, are considered artificial for labeling purposes in the United States, and the addition of color to a product must be identified on the label. The agency has long considered natural to mean that nothing artificial or synthetic, including colors regardless of source, has been included in or added to a product that would not normally be expected to be present.
On November 12, , in response to several citizen petitions, the FDA published in the Federal Register a request for information and public comments regarding whether it is appropriate to define natural, how the agency should define it, how the agency should determine its appropriate use on food labels, and other questions.
The deadline for comments is May 10, During the IFT15 show, James Simon, director of the New Use Agriculture and Natural Plant Products Program at Rutgers University, said that the white paper is intended to initiate discussion among academic, research, industry, and regulatory communities to provide a realistic, practical approach to refine existing standards for colors from natural sources.
The listing regulations for colors exempt from certification provide identity and purity specifications and use limitations and establish some basic standards for these substances, he said, but more is needed. The white paper outlines a set of standards that could be the framework for the industry. Some of the major points of the white paper are that natural colorants must be properly authenticated to verify that the material is what it is claimed to be.
Since colors from natural sources are crop-based, the potential exists for microbial contamination, so they should be tested for spoilage organisms, indicator organisms, and foodborne pathogens. There is also a potential for pesticide residues to be present and concentrated during the extraction process as well as a risk of adulteration, such as by toxic substances or dyes.
Since organic solvents are used extensively for the extraction, purification, and concentration of natural colorants, removal of the solvents is extremely important because of risks associated with exposure to them. Analytical methods must be robust, reliable, and accurate but must also allow for a realistic approach that the industry will accept, permitting greater monitoring and implementation and creating random checks along the value chain.
In addition, there is a lack of harmonization among regulatory bodies: Some manufacturers prefer a loosely regulated or unregulated field because of concerns that innovation and the ability to form strategic partnerships will be limited. It may be difficult to reach agreement on standards or methods of identification and analysis since natural sources are complex mixtures of chemical compounds that vary considerably due to environmental, handling, and processing factors.
The white paper recommends that the industry begin drafting its own regulatory framework and standards so that it is not done for the industry in a way that is less agreeable. Essentially, food manufacturers who use colors from natural sources should require their suppliers to test according to the standards proposed in the white paper to ensure brand protection and safety for their consumers. She described the main classes of pigments in plants and the colors they provide, including chlorophylls blue-green , carotenoids yellow to orange to intense red , anthocyanins orange to red to purple to blue , and betalains yellow to purple-red.
She reviewed the legislative history of food colors in the United States and described the main classes of pigments in plants and the colors exempt from certification. The advantages, she said, are favorable consumer perception, increased demand, standardization of formulations, and potential health benefits.
He described the considerations in choosing a natural color, including supply chain lead time and storage conditions, product appearance color intensity, clarity , product properties pH and matrix composition , interactions and order of addition, processing enzymes, oxidizers or interactions, time, and temperature , storage warehouse, distribution, and retail , and consumer handling.
He described natural colors that could replace certified colors, such as turmeric and beta-carotene for Yellow No. He discussed anthocyanins in detail, saying that they can be sourced from most edible fruits and vegetables, are most stable in high-acid environments, provide acceptable light and heat stability, and can be enhanced with added co-pigments.
She described the activities of the IACM, which represents the natural and synthetic color additives industry and the color user community. The organization provides scientific and regulatory expertise and advocates global harmonization of standards and regulations. George Pugh, director of ingredient safety, Coca-Cola Co. He discussed the University of Southampton study that suggested that some mixtures of certain artificial food colors and benzoate preservative may affect the level of hyperactive behavior in children.
He pointed out the following problems with the study: behavior assessment data were not collected for the respective placebo phases, the observed effects lacked clear statistical significance, behavioral changes were only partially significant, the very weakly statistically significant effects were only measured under a constant seven-day treatment period, and no biological mechanism for causal association between the intake of the corresponding additives and the onset of hyperactivity could be derived from the results.
He said that the European Food Safety Authority EFSA concluded that the significance of the effects on the behavior of the children was unclear since it was not known if the small changes in attention and activity observed would interfere with schoolwork or other intellectual functioning.
The EFSA noted that the study was unable to pinpoint which additives may have been responsible for the effects observed in the children since mixtures and not individual additives were tested. David R. In Europe, he said, all food additives are given labeling codes commonly referred to as E-numbers, e.
He mentioned that the EU also requires a warning label for the Southampton colors, saying that they may have effects on activity and attention in children. An FDA advisory committee, however, after review of all scientific data, concluded that there was no causal relationship and a warning label is not needed. He said that the IACM does not support a warning for colors on ingredient labels because there is no proven causality to hyperactivity and, as with all food ingredients, if consumers want to avoid a specific ingredient, they can see it listed on the label and make an informed product choice.
Louis, Mo. Q: How large is a batch of certified color? Goldschmidt: Once a batch is certified, it becomes an FDA lot by definition. Since there are no requirements on the size of a batch requiring certification, it can vary greatly from a small batch to several tons of product.
Q: What tests do you conduct on each batch of certified color? Goldschmidt: We run at a minimum all the tests listed under the appropriate color regulation in 21 CFR part These are the same tests the FDA runs to determine if the color complies with the regulation and can be certified.
Q: What tests do you conduct on each batch of natural color? However, there are very few specifications listed in these regulations. Pharmacopeial Convention USP that focuses on establishing safety standards for colors from natural sources.
Q: Are any microbiological tests done? Goldschmidt: We conduct comprehensive microbiological testing on both natural and certified colors. We also test for heavy metals, pesticide residues, residual solvent, and other adulterants. This is currently not an industry standard but something we hope will become such in the future. With the forthcoming publication of the white paper, we expect further discussion about the issue and its importance.
Q: Once a batch is certified by the FDA, what do you do? Goldschmidt: The batch is labeled with an FDA lot number and then released for sale or used to make other color products. All documents certificates of analysis, labels, etc. Q: Can the batch be used to provide color to more than one food company? Goldschmidt: Yes.
It can also be used by the color manufacturer in downstream color-manufacturing processes. Q: What tests does a food company do on the certified color it receives? Goldschmidt: This varies from company to company. Quite frequently, no additional testing is done on certified colors. When additional testing is undertaken, those tests listed in the Food Chemicals Codex would be the ones most packaged-food companies would employ.
Q: What instruments do you use to conduct the tests? Q: There are many companies supplying colors to the food industry. How do their products differ?
Goldschmidt: Products can differ substantially. Some color providers focus on single-source expressed juices that might be appropriate only as building blocks to achieve desired shade targets. Other suppliers, Sensient included, focus on color solutions designed to address stability challenges and hit specified shade targets for different applications. The appropriate natural color source will vary considerably depending on the application.
Q: Have there been any major advances regarding certified and natural colors? Goldschmidt: There have been quite a lot of developments in natural colors. Novel color sources such as spirulina have been approved for use in certain applications. Additionally, technological advancements such as new purification technologies have closed the performance gap between certified and natural colors. Additionally, natural plant-breeding techniques are narrowing the cost-in-use gap between natural and certified colors.
Most of the innovation has been focused on the natural side since that is where the market seems to be headed. Q: What are the major challenges ahead regarding certified colors? Goldschmidt: The challenge will probably be to counter the public perception that they could have an adverse effect on human health. Q: What are the challenges ahead regarding natural colors? Goldschmidt: The industry needs to develop and agree on standards for natural colors, ideally a self-regulated set of standards.
The risk to the industry is that if we were to have even one food safety incident involving natural colors, it could negatively impact the perception of natural color and inevitably food color overall.

Indigo dye is an organic compound with a distinctive blue color see indigo. Historically, indigo was a natural dye extracted from the leaves of certain plants, and this process was important economically because blue dyes were once rare. A large percentage of indigo dye produced today, several thousand tonnes each year, is synthetic. It is the blue often associated with denim cloth and blue jeans.
Textile dye wastewater characteristics and constituents of synthetic effluents: a critical review
Textile industries are responsible for one of the major environmental pollution problems in the world, because they release undesirable dye effluents. Textile wastewater contains dyes mixed with various contaminants at a variety of ranges. Therefore, environmental legislation commonly obligates textile factories to treat these effluents before discharge into the receiving watercourses. The treatment efficiency of any pilot-scale study can be examined by feeding the system either with real textile effluents or with artificial wastewater having characteristics, which match typical textile factory discharges. This paper presents a critical review of the currently available literature regarding typical and real characteristics of the textile effluents, and also constituents including chemicals used for preparing simulated textile wastewater containing dye, as well as the treatments applied for treating the prepared effluents.
Indigo, or indigotin, is a dyestuff originally extracted from the varieties of the indigo and woad plants. Indigo was known throughout the ancient world for its ability to color fabrics a deep blue. Egyptian artifacts suggest that indigo was employed as early as B. The dye imparts a brilliant blue hue to fabric. In the dying process, cotton and linen threads are usually soaked and dried times. By comparison, silk threads must be died over 40 times. After dying, the yarn may be sun dried to deepen the color. Indigo is unique in its ability to impart surface color while only partially penetrating fibers.

Dyes, Pigments and Inks
The synthetic dyes and pigments market consists of the sales of synthetic dyes and pigments by entities organizations, sole traders or partnerships that manufacture synthetic organic and inorganic dyes and pigments, such as lakes and toners except electrostatic and photographic. Growth in the historic period resulted from rising demand in emerging markets and technological advances. Going forward, increased demand from the packaging industry, rising demand for high performance pigments and economic growth will drive the synthetic dyes and pigments market growth. Factors that negatively affected growth in the historic period were changing regulations, increasing awareness of safety issues and decreased demand from the paper publishing industry. Factors that could hinder the growth of this market in the future are instability in raw material costs, expected increases in interest rates, reduction in free trade and growing competition from natural dyes and pigments. During the historic period, interest rates in most developed countries were very low.

Advanced developments for the natural bio-resources and their sustainable use for multifunctional clothing are gaining pace now. Present review highlights historical overview of natural colorants, classification and predominantly processing of colorants from sources, application on textiles surfaces with the functionalities provided by them. Chemistry of natural colorants on textiles also discussed with relevance to adsorption isotherms and kinetic models for dyeing of textiles. Nature has always dominated over synthetic or artificial, from the beginning of this world as nature was the only option for human being then, and now with advantageous characteristics of naturally derived materials over synthetics giving them priority. Color has always played an important role in the formation of different cultures of human being all over the world. It affects every moment of our lives, strongly influencing the clothes we wear, the furnishings in our homes. In the past, painters had used natural dyes extracted from plants, insects, molluscs and minerals for their paintings. The unique character of their works were the result of using different mixtures of dyes and mordants, as varnishes and lacquers responsible for cohesion of the pigments and protection of the layers destroyed by environmental effects. Natural dyes were also used in clothings, as well as in cosmetic industry Henna, Catechu , pharmaceutical industry Saffron, Rhubarb and in food industry Annatto, Curcumin and Cochineal [ 1 , 2 ].
The Scottish Turkey red industry was based on a sophisticated but traditional dyeing process using natural materials. Madder root, which was grown and processed in France and the Netherlands, was expensive but also produced the brightest of reds.
