Create colorful pastries with confidence using the right food coloring!

To color your chocolates, you cannot use just any food coloring. Here is a brief explanation that will help you understand when to use the right one.

What is the difference between oil-soluble and water-soluble food coloring?

As their names suggest, oil-soluble colorings (lipo=fat) are oil-based. They need fat to be diluted and to bring out all their pigments. That's why they are used to color white chocolate, butter, cocoa butter, and ganaches.

Water-soluble coloring, as indicated by its name (hydro=water), is water-based. It is ideal for use in preparations such as sponge cakes, macaron shells, mirror glaze, and cookies, but it is never suitable for coloring chocolate.

Whether water-soluble or oil-soluble, you can find them in powder or liquid form.

Oil-based liquid coloring:

Colour Mill is a brand of oil-soluble coloring that offers a plethora of colors for your chocolate creations. You can find all the colors we offer in our product "Colour Mill oil-based colorant". Among these color choices, there is a booster that will allow you to create beautiful shades. These colorants are highly concentrated, so just a few drops are enough to vividly color your mixture.

In this category, we also offer pigments from the brand Decora. This range of colorants is primarily used for coloring pure chocolate, perfect for making your colored chocolate shells. To create an artistic visual, splash the molds with color before pouring in your tempered chocolate. If you want to succeed in making chocolates like a professional, follow our recipe for homemade Kinder bars or our Easter bunnies. (available only in French or German)

Oil-soluble powder coloring:

These are specially used for coloring fat-based preparations like white chocolate, ganaches, and other butter-containing preparations. These oil-soluble food colorings in powder form function similarly to the liquid ones, but they will give you lighter tones in your creations. You can also use this powder to add an artistic touch of color when decorating your cupcakes, muffins, cakes, and chocolate drinks.
