BEER SHEVA, ISRAEL — LycoRed has developed a tomato lycopene formulation tailored specifically for use as color in surimi applications. It allows food manufacturers to avoid artificial colorants as well as carmine, which is extracted from cochineal insects. Surimi’s texture and color often are identical to the meat of lobster crab or other shellfish, according to Beer Sheva-based LycoRed.
