FD&C Colors (Lakes)

Lakes are ideal for coloring many food, drug and cosmetic products which are fat-based or oil-based compounds, such as icings, mixes, chewing gum, seasonings, confectionery coatings and food packaging. Since FD&C Lakes cannot be judged solely by the dye percentage alone, Prime Ingredients will work closely with you to choose the right lake for your product. Above is a list of lakes offered by Prime Ingredients; each lake has different strengths available for different applications.
