100% PURE MAGIC
These little flakes are like magic. They can do anything from adding color in ways that have never been possible before in baked goods, to creating a swirl of “snow” in a carbonated beverage. Now, even flavors and sweeteners can be added to Edible Glitter, which opens up a whole new world of opportunities and applications for this product.
The standard glitter product is approx. 2 mil thick. Watson also manufactures 2X glitter which is twice as thick as the standard product. The thicker flake is more opaque and dissolves at a slower rate than the thinner flake.
In most applications “soluble” Edible Glitter made from gum arabic is the preferred choice, and it can be used on baked, fried and frosted products; however, some applications require a glitter product with a slower solubility rate. Watson manufactures Edible Glitter with various solubility rates that are ideal for use in high active water systems. Furthermore, an insoluble product is available using sodium alginate, which is stable in a water environment for a prolonged period of time.
Watson manufactures a full spectrum of colored glitter products using FD&C, EU and natural colorants. Watson can also match a custom color using a Pantone system of color matching. Watson produces custom blends of colored glitter using up to five different colors. To see samples of the colors available, click here.

Carnival glitter will give a rainbow appearance to any product making it irresistible to any child.
