DD Williamson has introduced a food coloring competition aiming to develop student awareness of natural colorants for beverage applications.
Vice president of science and innovation at DD Williamson Margaret Lawson said: “We’re spreading the excitement of working with color to create more alluring beverage. Students will use their technical skills to develop a beverage and learn how nature offers food coloring sources that can function as alternatives to synthetic sources.”
The competition is open to food science students who are also members of the IFT students association, and the winning student will receive an expenses-paid trip to the 2011 IFT Annual Meeting and Food Expo in New Orleans, the company said.
