If these were truly made from fruits and vegetables...which I seriously doubt since I am unaware of any 'black' (or brown) fruits or vegetables, from the picture and description, they are being advertised for baking. The thing about using powdered fruits, vegetables and other plant matter for colorants is that 'what you see is NOT what you get...case in point, Spinach Powder. Here is what Spinach Powder looks like in both Cold/Hot Process and Clear and White Melt & Pour. None of the results look like color in the powder...in CP/HP, it looks like something you'd find in a diaper, while the Clear M&P is very dark and the White M&P is very light.Hi just wondering if anyone has used these freeze dried vegetable colourings to colour their soaps? Looks good and natural.
