- The use of fruit juices as natural colouring agents
David Berryman, Founder, David Berryman Limited
It’s fairly well established that we eat with our eyes. Before we even attempt to taste food, our brains need the comfort that what is about to be consumed has passed a visual test. As omnivorous creatures, the range of colours which we recognise as attractive is vast. What is regarded as a ‘good’ colour for fruit may not be a good colour for meat or fish, but we have learned by association to edit incoming visual data.

Paul Hughes, Director, Yasigiworld Ltd
Since the medieval period, brewers have been concerned with improving the stability of beers. Pre-Industrial Revolution, much of the need was to ensure that relatively small batches were sufficiently acceptable to the domestic setting or to the consuming public, most of which would be consumed local to the area of production. As early as 1576, Reynolde Scot, in the second edition of his slim volume on hop growing, clearly understood the benefit of hops to beer stabilisation (also highlighting the savings in malted barley required at the same time).
