Sun Chemical Forms New Food and Nutrition Group

Sun Chemical has formed a Food and Nutrition Group. The recently formed group will extend existing Sun Chemical and DIC Corporation expertise in color and algae cultivation to provide coloring solutions and nutraceutical ingredients to the dietary supplement, food and beverage industries.

The Food and Nutrition Group was developed as part of DIC Corporation’s vision of transforming portfolios to achieve continued future growth. The group will leverage Sun Chemical’s advanced research and development coloring expertise to support new product development initiatives for both natural and synthetic food color. The research and development team at DIC Corporation headquarters is actively working with venture capital groups in developing bio-based nutraceutical ingredients, and Sun Chemical is committed to grow the new business group and will make additional investments to accelerate its growth.

As part of the Food and Nutrition Group development, Sun Chemical has integrated the sales and marketing functions of Earthrise Nutritionals, a subsidiary member of DIC, into the organization. This includes the marketing and distribution of its Spirulina and LINABLUE® Spirulina Extract product lines, both of which are manufactured with FSSC22000 Standard.

Spirulina provides exceptional balanced nutrition to the human body and supports one’s immune system*. Earthrise Spirulina is sustainably cultivated and manufactured in California, US, Non-GMO Project Verified, Kosher, Halal and GRAS.

LINABLUE® Spirulina Extract
LINABLUE® Spirulina Extract is a natural blue food colorant of phycocyanin extracted from spirulina. DIC invented the spirulina extraction process 35 years ago and Sun Chemical is now a global leader in supplying Spirulina Extract-LINABLUE to the food industry. Earthrise LINABLUE is microcystin free and Kosher and Halal compliant.
