Sun Chemical is expanding its edible ink range with the launch of its FSR ink, which was developed to meet the specific needs of the food industry and verified for printing directly onto food including baked goods.
Created to offer outstanding color and sharpness, while also complying with the highest levels of quality and safety regulations, Sun Chemical’s FSR ink range is based on synthetic colorants suitable for use for direct food printing using mid-viscosity range piezo printheads, such as the Ricoh GH2220 digital printhead. This completes a series of digital edible inks, complementing the existing low and high viscosity FSE and FSS lines, to enable food decoration with a full range of digital printhead technologies.
The FSR range of inks has been developed using carefully selected synthetic food dyes that conform to FDA and EU legislation and is suitable for food printing when used in the right conditions for food production.
“We are seeing substantial growth in the personalized packaging market, with the latest trend being toward customization of the food product itself – comments Sergio Molto, Marketing and Business Development Manager, Food and Pharma Inks, Sun Chemical. - This development marks a clear step forward for adding significant value within this industry for brands and consumers alike".
