Commercial production of carotenoids using microorganisms is competing with synthetic manufacturing of carotenoids using chemical procedure. However, chemical synthesis for production of carotenoids generates substantial waste, which is detrimental for the environment. This has resulted into natural and microbial production of carotenoids, with low production cost.

Ingredient Compatibility, Storage and Sourcing Perspectives Remain Biggest Challenges

Obtaining vibrant color for various food products using natural colors continues to be a key challenge. Natural colors are incompatible with ‘one-size fits all’ food processing approach. Cold storage to maintain integrity of naturally sourced color is also difficult as opening and closing of storage unit may lead to microbial contamination and product degradation.

Ingredient compatibility poses another challenge for carotenoids. Rise in process variation in the food processing industry is impacting ingredient interaction. Moreover, oil-based naturally sourced colors including carotenoids and paprika can result in permanent stains, creating further challenges for food and beverage processors.
