Costa Rica's rainforest is known around
the world for being home to millions of different species
of animals and plants. Five percent of world´s
biodiversity can be found in this tiny paradise. The
importance of protecting these resources and living
in harmony with nature is one of our antecessors
most important legacies.
The use of natural products can be traced back to indigenous tribes. For many centuries they have used seeds, flowers and rhizomes to extract pigments and color their bodies, clothes and food.
In harmony with this environment, TECO (Ecological
Technique) extracts natural pigments
like bixin, norbixin and other
carotenoids from annatto seeds, and
curcumin from Curcuma longa
These colorants produce clean bright hues widely used today for coloring margarine, cheese, ice cream, snacks, bakery products, cosmetics, etc.
Colorants derived from natural sources are a necessity. Discover a new way to enhance your products
with our 100% natural pigments.
