Carbon or Charcoal Powder (Farina di Carbone) - Make Your Bake Black
Carbon or charcoal powder is a very fine gluten-free, odourless and tasteless powder made from fruit, vegetables and edible plants to make a jet black colouring for your bakes from pizzas to focaccia, biscuits and crackers. Simply add carbon powder or charcoal flour (Farina di Carbone) with your flour and make your dough as usual. Allow 1tsp per 500g flour. Specialist bakers suggest that that their black bakes using carbon flour are softer and their customers like it because they find that it aides digestion.
