I have recently bought the americolor air brush colors from the UK. It says on the bottle that these are not edible !!!
How can this be used on sugar if not edible ??
Could you please tell me which airbrush colors / brands are edible ?
ASome Americolor colours are edible but some aren't.They contain sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate as preservatives,some contain the colour E127 which is no longer permitted in food products. I know that Kroma airbrush food colours are edible as is Chef rubber,hope this helps.
Thank you for the information. Appreciated
Oh good lord, which of them are not edible? I couldn't see this on my bottles, the labels are pretty worn out!
AI'm sorry I can't tell you which are edible/ non edible, on the edible ones they usually will say they are kosher approved.
I believe that you will find that in the UK, some ingredients in the airbrush colors have been declared "inedible" or "not for consumption".
Those same ingredients in the US ARE considered edible and can be consumed, so in the US, the colors are just fine.
This goes both ways, as there are certain Sugarflair colors from the UK that are deemed "for decoration only" whereas they're considered edible in the UK.
AWow maybenot, u learn something new everyday!!
All food colours should state whether they are appropriate for human consumption. If a colour states "for decoration only" then it is advised that these are in fact for decoration only and NOT edible.
Ingredients change dependent upon the country in which they are produced, but bear in mind that these may not be the same as where they are purchased... so rule of thumb - Read the details first!
The UK has a British Standard and a Trading Standard that will not allow something to be labelled as edible, when in fact it is not. So, I believe that maybenot may have their details a bit muddled!
May I suggest using Kroma Kolors, as these can be used with all ********** projects and can be sourced directly from the USA or from distributors in the UK.
Kroma Kolors food colouring provide what is called a Kosher Certificate, which states that these are edible and can be safely used with food. They also supply a range of colours, which can be mixed for a range of shades.
If you are having difficulty in finding a UK supplier, then let me know and I will send you the details.
Hope this helps : )
