Natural Red Food Colour
Humans are drawn towards red-coloured foods, since red fruits (strawberries, cranberries, raspberries) and vegetables (peppers, tomatoes) are full of anti-oxidants and contribute to a healthy diet, also red meats are appealing because of the protein they contribute to our diet.
When a red fruit-flavoured beverage is created, it's important to ensure that a natural red colour is added, likewise in the case of confectionery, red colour should be included to give the full gestalt perception of consuming that flavour. In fact boosting red colour can give a perception of a significantly sweeter flavour without adding any extra sugar.
Strong red or pink colour is also highly desirable in meats, with either sausage casings (red) or sausage fillings (pink) often needing extra colour to improve their appearance to the consumer.
