GUSTA SUPPLIES Water-Soluble Food Colouring Powder

Gusta Supplies


These ultra-concentrated, water soluble food colouring powders are perfect to tint your preparations in the mass (macaron, cream, pasta, pastillage etc.).

Applications: ice cream and desserts, fine bakery products, other confectionery

Colour tests at different dosages in milk and water: see reference photo. 
(Due to the limitations of Internet browsers and computer screens, the actual colours may differ slightly from the colours shown on the screen)

Dilution: Due to the very high concentration of this food colouring, count 1 point of knife for 1 litre of preparation.


  • In a liquid paste, add the food colouring powder directly.
  • In a thicker paste or sugar paste, dilute the powder before incorporation.
  • These water-soluble dyes can also be used with an airbrush, in which case you need to dilute them in boiled water or food alcohol.  

Shelf life: 3 months
