Color your Food with Food Finish



  • Ani Foirentova

    i dont know how i feel about that. eating colored food takes away so much from what i love about foods. its like dyed flowers, i just cant!

  • Marcia Wong

    The food look so strange, but it’s a very interesting concept: looking so bizarre and beautiful it doesn’t look real anymore.

  • Hareluyacos

    wonderful ideas!

  • Photo Retouching

    very bad idea

  • David Pratt

    Impress my friends? More like “nauseate”.

    More effective than syrup of ipecac, I imagine…

    I’m surprised that people aren’t liking this! I think it is so cool. Honestly though, I am more interested in seeing everyone’s teeth and tongue after eating something sprayed with this!

    It looks very beautiful, interesting, and unique. But the fact that its artificial coloring all over it makes me think twice about even coming close to eating it.

    Nature is made of chemicals. There’s no great reason to suspect something to be more harmful just because humans made it, and if it’s been tested for safety it’s likely to be way safer than untested omg-natural substitutes.

    talk about cancer in a bottle. and why would anyone wanna eat something that looks like a decoration anyway?

  • stephanie hafferty

    I realllllly like the look of the apples, I would spray them for photography, but never eat any of it. I just can’t…

  • Suzeaa

    I looked up the ingredients to these spray on colors.  They may be tasteless but they are loaded with butane, propane, titanium dioxide (controversial), and other (some untested) additives.  I spend so much time trying to buy food that has fewer chemicals in it that buying a big spray can full of them and spraying it all over so that there’s a huge concentration being consumed seems a bit horrifying.  Also, I think it looks gross.  It’s like spraying a gorgeous red rose with ugly spray paint.

    If you aren’t gonna eat it, how is this better than spraypaint?

  • John Cook

    How about a golden spider?  Very tasty and fashionable too

  • watson

    true, “chemical” doesn’t automatically equal “bad,” H20 is a chemical, after all, but really…. butane and propane? there is no way that can be good for you.

  • iunctus

     In fairness the butane/propane are most likely used in the propellant and will evaporate off quickly enough.

  • Billy Kropotkin

    Please! Butane and propane are propellant gases used in spray cans. It is not something you eat…

  • Charliebcarter

    Those aren’t in the coloring, those are just the propellants used to compress it so it’s sprayable.

  • Emberix

    You try to buy food with fewer chemicals in it? Can you be more specific? Everything in existence is chemicals. You are chemicals. The most healthy thing in the world is chemicals. In fact a load of chemicals that you need for your brain to function properly are even toxic in the wrong place or in overly large doses. Please stop thinking “chemicals = bad”, I don’t have a problem with you avoiding carcinogens or pathogens but please update your terminology to actually make sense, it’s a massive pet hate of mine.

    Creepy. Guess it could be pretty cool for that person making some cheesy movie called something like “Metaleater: The Last Supper.’ Or it could be used as a super awful prank: Oh yeah, go ahead. Those are apples, I just sprayed them with this stuff to make them look metal (all the posh people are eating metallic themed foods these days). Whoops! How’d that sculpture get in there? Sorry about your teeth, brah.   …Why is it we need to ‘impress’ our friends anyway? Aren’t they already impressed? Isn’t that what friendship is? Nah, friendship isn’t real until you have a party with food that doesn’t look like food.

  • Shmeck42

    I wonder if this has any application in the bedroom… :D

  • Brennan Bynum

     Why make a beautiful roast chicken, or a perfectly ripe tomato so gaudy and fake looking? A well cooked meal is aesthetically pleasing enough for my tastes. I would not eat this.

  • Mb925

    I eat Christmas ornaments.

  • Val

    It looks ugly already seeing a roast chicken covered in gold paint…

  • Rachel

    Great. Spend more money developing crap like this that no one needs. What a waste of time and resources.

  • Harleyman

    why paint food?…what a dumbass….must be a euro trash loser.

  • Collier Hageman

    Worst new product I’ve seen.  It does not improve the appeal of the food.  In fact it makes it look horrifying.

  • Grahammers

     Could you please get your point across without swearing like a middle school student?  FYI, No one will take you seriously. 

  • Grahammers

    It looks pretty awesome.  It just doesn’t look appetizing regardless of what it’s made out of….  Even if it’s 100% safe, I’m not sure I would spray my turkey gold.  …just saying.

  • Val

    Totally disgusting…

  • Val

    the idea of painting your food is totally repulsive…

    Sorry to all of you who would like to call names at those who are a bit concerned by eating metal:

    Some of the microscopic metal in the just the gold product:
        Chemicals-   E555 =Potassium aluminium silicate (not good for your brain)
                             E171 = Titanium Dioxide (not good for your brain)
                             E172 = Iron Oxide (not good for your gut)

  • Phillipe

    So you never use aerosol cans, ever? Besides, I don’t imagine anybody would use this on a daily sandwich. It seems like it would be put to best use at a very swanky theme dinner. For instance, at the grand ball following the Oscar awards when all the actors and directors and producers and other talent sit down for a $1000/plate dinner, and the surroundings are over the top crazy riche – in a setting like that, I think gold-tipped asparagus would be amazingly cool. 

  • Lucille Marie Mckenzie

    Spray color on food is not a new thing. This is a poor example, but, you can do some really beautiful things with spray food coloring….Usually it’s done by airbrushing, but, you can also spray colored and tempered cocoa butter onto things to get a solid color finish.

    I think it’s probably the metallic-ness that makes it unappealing.

  • Eat5vegetables

    Sorry.  You fail here in you snide dismissal of her concerns regarding chemicals. 

    She means chemicals like Titanium Dioxide, Potassium aluminium silicate and Iron Oxide.  Both aluminum and titanium are on lists of metals that have significant evidence for harm to the brain.  If you have so little regard for your own health and trust the FDA so deeply that’s fine, but you might not want to be so sure that another’s concerns are unfounded.

    I’d spray paint all sorts of food before I eat it, and between bites, so It’s all solid and ready for the next bite.

    Haha! yes chemicals are BAD things only, there ain’t no good chemicals, nope. GOD made everything else, but not chemicals Ayyyuuuuuuuup! H’YUCK H’yuck h’yuck!

    In response to some anti-intellectual earlier poster. On the other hand, agreeing with her, I wouldn’t eat this spray on stuff either.

  • Sophisma

    You completely missed the point. EVERYTHING is chemicals. Water is H2O: Hydrogen and Oxygen. Ever hear about the “dihydrogen monoxide” hoax? Saying you don’t eat food with “chemicals” is the same as saying you don’t eat. Saying you don’t eat food with unhealthy additives would make a lot more sense.

  • Len

    Why not just use real gold flakes? I’m pretty sure that would impress friends more.

  • ilikenormalfood

    Just when I thought I’d seen all the stupid things, someone went and painted their pretzel silver.

    i cant believe that exists… kinda cool. but weird to eat. id rather take a pic of it instead of eating shiny cupcakes!!!

  • Arroganceblocker

    Emberix….  nobody cares what your “pet hates” are. She obviously meant the bad chemicals…. butane, propane, titanium dioxide…. duh! She even named a few for idiots like yourself.  Don’t ask people to update their terminology to suit your wants…. Instead, stop being the type of pompous prick that likes to prove at every opportunity that your more educated in the english department. I think the point she made blew your peon remark out of the water. And if you don’t see what’s wrong with putting that crap in your body, then eat up.

  • MMedved

    I think nature does a good job of coloring food just the color it should be. Why not do this? Because it’s disgusting. If I went to someone’s home and was served a metallic colored chicken, I would politely decline.  Not to mention the threat of potentially DANGEROUS chemicals.

    Wow the gold chicken does look very sassy, great for a party! Or hell, just for a great photograph! For those worried about the ingredients I thought I would break it down using my chemical knowledge… in short they are all non-toxic and nothing to worry about but you are all right to be weary and just try and stick to the non-processed foods as any extra additives are harder to break down and don’t provide any added nutrition.

    Ethanol – Okay easy one, alcohol also used in perfumes etc. as carrier of the scent and often in sprays like deodorant. no biggie.

    Nitrous Oxide – laughing gas and a favourite in the fast and the furious. This with Isobutane and Propane are just propellants really – harmless in small quantities and yes you will have to spray a tonne in your mouth, Isobutane and Propane are hydrocarbons. These are carrier gases so they just evaporate off. 

    Potassium aluminium silicate – This is what gives it the shine, or muscovite mica is basically…. wait for it…. wait…keep waiting…. GLITTER!!! yup – that rock is what is used in glitters and you can put it on cakes etc. harmless. In fact it is also an anti-caking agent.

    Titanium dioxide – Q. Do you own anything white? Then it has Titanium dioxide in and is used in loads of things. Too many to mention but harmless.

    Iron Oxide – If you are anaemic eat the silver one! This is essentially what rust is but not only harmless but good for you as your body can use the megre amount of iron to make red blood cells haha.

    I’m aiming to become a professional cook…and this honestly horrifies me on every level. Spray paint your food? Even if the paint is food safe, its a very small step to use something like this to cover food that isn’t the best, and play it off as something beautiful.

    Plus, those color food finish mini cakes, that are being sprayed? If you’re coloring this, you could do it as part of the icing, not on top. That’s just laziness.

    Simply put, as a decor piece, or for an interesting piece for a place setting or center piece, this way it can still be eaten without being toxic.

    Otherwise? This seems like a way to cover something that’s bad food, and it creeps me out.

  • siri

    OMG this turned into a whole total food fight. Don’t those people who are so vicious in their comments below versed on class, manners, consideration? Who raised you? Why aren’t you embarrassed to allow this behavior to show to others? I’d be mortified if I behaved like that in a public place.

    What’s wrong with you people? Keep it civil, have some class.

  • DateDoctor Sean

    People, Sophisma is a troll. Let’s get back on topic. The second I saw this, I was immediately skeptical. To hear it has these elements in it further proves it (but watch the FDA approve it).
