\ CERTIFIED FOOD COLORS
The timings in this card illustrate a few of the great variety of
the shades which may be obtained by the use of "NATIONAL"
Certified Food Colors.
"Certified" Colors may be used in food without objection from
the Department of Agriculture, provided the use of the color in food
does not conceal damage or impurity.
"Uncertified" coal-tar dyes are likely to contain arsenic and
other poisonous materials, which, when used in foods, may render
them injurious to health and therefore adulterated under the law.
All "NATIONAL" Food Colors manufactured by the National
Aniline & Chemical Company, Inc., are "Certified" to government
formulae and approved by the Bureau of Chemistry, United States
Department of Agriculture, thus insuring the trade a pure and
uniform product. Because .of their superior quality, "NATIONAL"
Certified Food Colors are used by the most particular producers of
food stuffs, confectionery, beverages and ice cream.
"Primary" or basic colors, when certified, are made according
to government specifications or formulae.
"Secondary" shades or blends are combinations of primary
colors, but the importance of their also being certified is too frequently
"NATIONAL" secondary shades are actually certified as such.
In other words, the original primary colors are certified to govern-
ment requirements and the final secondary shades or blends are
Strength in "Certified" Food Colors means economy in use.
Brilliancy of color insures attractive appearance in food products.
Uniformity in our product means uniformity in the color of
food stuffs and prevents the necessity of changing recipes.

Suggestions for the use of
CERTIFIED FOOD COLORS
Use sufficient soft water (preferably distilled) to completely
dissolve the color. This quantity will vary from three to eight ounces
of color to one gallon of water according to the type.
Stir the mixture until solution is complete.
The application of heat facilitates dissolving. Boiling violently
is unnecessary. Raise the temperature from 150 to 180 degrees
Fahrenheit, stirring continuously until color is completely dissolved.
The use of high open flames is to be avoided because of the
danger of overheating the container and scorching the color on its
Careful observance of the above will avoid the appearance of
particles or moats of undissolved color which sometimes float in the
solution for several hours.
The difficulty of undissolved portions may also be overcome by
first preparing the dry color into a smooth paste by mixing with cold
water and stirring thoroughly in order to completely wet every
particle of color. If this is done, a clear, uniform solution can be

The use of porcelain, good quality enamel, or glassware is
recommended. Avoid use of metals.
For storage of solutions, similar ware is preferable, but clean
cypress tanks or stout oak barrels may be used, provided they are
kept scrupulously clean.
Solutions kept in storage should be protected from direct sun-
light, dust, dirt and contamination. Evaporation should be pre-
When sugar or other fermentable substances are added, the usual
precautions must be observed to prevent fermentation or decom-
position. Change of color in a solution may be taken as an indication
of either condition in some form, due to the color being affected. Fre-
quently the addition of any common or approved preservative, such
as benzoate of soda, will prevent fermentation, etc.
Solutions prepared and handled according to the foregoing
directions and not exposed to harmful influences, may be kept
Stock solutions of National Yellow AB - Certified, or National
Yellow OB - Certified, may be prepared by dissolving the color in
the ratio of four ounces of color to one gallon of olive or cotton-seed
oil at about 150° F.
