I have been noticing some specks in my americolor. I am trying to think if it is just the one color I have or if there is more. I can see the specks right in the food color when I squeeze it out and it doesnt blend in. I dont feel like it is excessively old. Yesterday I spent a long time picking little specks that looks like pepper out of my fondant. It was annoying. Just me or has anyone else experienced this?

I have never noticed this. I would say you got a bad, or expired, bottle.

I guess I should just toss it and try a new bottle then. Too bad it was one of the big bottles.

Oh noooo. Well, better to be safe than sorry. The cost of a new big bottle is small compared to the cost of a whole cake that is ruined by the color.

I have some Americolor black airbrush that seems separated. My airbrush keeps getting clogged because of it. I'm not bashing Americolor though... they normally have a great product.

Oh I agree. In no way did I mean to suggest that americolor wasn't great. Just curious why I have these specks.

My soft pink has specks in it. I should toss it I guess.

You never know how long they have been sitting in a warehouse or on a shelf before you actually got it. I would guess that it's an expired or bad bottle. Better to just toss it and buy a new one.
