Colour and Appearance
Industrial and domestic consumers of coloured products, whether food, motor vehicles, clothing, coatings or cosmetics, are using the consistency of colour and appearance of the finished products as a measure of intrinsic quality performance.
Formulations and recipes must not only be consistently repeatable and reproducible, but the product must also be monitored to check that this is being achieved in practice.
The colour and appearance of natural and processed foods, influence the consumer’s choice before an opportunity to taste or smell arises.
In all cases, customers’ expectations with respect to colour and appearance need to be met.
