Impact of Color on Food – Watson Announces Roundtable Discussion at IFT16

Lemon Edible Glitter on a pieWest Haven CT – Watson Inc. is proud to announce a roundtable discussion to be held at the IFT Food Expo in Chicago, Illinois.  The title of the roundtable is “The Impact of Color on Food”.  The discussion will be held in a meeting room at the Watson booth on the IFT show floor.  Leading the discussion will be Mary Watson, Sr. VP Business Development.

Watson will discuss topics such as: how color impacts the perception and acceptability of flavors, how your choice of colors for your products can affect your sales and profits, the growing, consumer-driven demand for clean- and clear-labeling, including the growing trend in the industry to move away from artificial colorings towards naturally-derived sources, and the resulting reformulation challenges that such a move presents.

The roundtable will also include a hands-on lab that will give participants the opportunity to test Watson’s Edible Glitter as a unique color-delivery system in a wide range of food and beverage applications. Edible Glitter contains no sugars or partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, and it is available in clean label, plant-based colors or FD&C colors.  You can learn more about Edible glitter on the Watson website at
