Food Coloring and Chocolate

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I would like to color some white chocolate and know that I can not use a liquid coloring. Will any gel or paste food coloring work without seizing the chocolate? I saw a set of Ateco gel colorings online that I would like to buy, but I couldn't determine if they were water-based.

there are powders, oil based colours, etc. You just need to staw away from water. Check out some sites like ChefRubber, Albert Uster, etc.

Powders are the way to go when coloring white chocalate, IMO...Have never had issues using them. They will not comprimise the choc in anyway.

Looks like Panini listed some great resource sites.

I'm completely ignorant on this topic. On Kelly's link I see quantities for sale ranging from 3 or 4 grams to pounds. Roughly how much icing or white chocolate would any given amount of powdered color color?
