AProRed™ is a blood-derived protein ideal for enhancing the natural color of all processed meat products. This ingredient will give your meat products a rich and inviting appearance which is synonymous with healthy meats. 

With AProRed™ you get a more homogeneous color in your meat products. As a meat processor, this means you can improve product appearance and achieve a meat-authentic look without adding food colorants.

AProRed™ is a coloring food that originates from spray dried porcine blood, and due to its ability to easily disperse in water and brine, it's especially recommended for use in injected and reformed meat products.


Consistent product quality

AProRed™ brings a high degree of consistency to the product appearance and improves the perceived product quality.

Despite color variances in, for example, lean and extended meat, AProRed™ delivers consistency to products. This means that AProRed™ also adds to a better process efficiency.
