Brew Glitter & Brew Dust Differences?

Main Difference Between Brew Glitter® & Brew Dust®

The big difference between Brew Glitter® colored glitters and Brew Dust® colored dusts is exactly that, one is a glitter and one is a dust. Brew Dust® is designed intentionally to be a more subtle alternative in both "shimmer" & "glitter" effect than our Brew Glitter® colored beverage glitters. Additionally, the particles in Brew Dust® are even smaller then Brew Glitter® creating a cloudy-dust effect in the beverage. So if you want your drink to really pop, glitter & shimmer then we recommend to purchasing Brew Glitter® colored glitters, if you want a subtle hint of shimmer and more of a food coloring additive... go with the Brew Dust®! Both products are fantastic, as to which one will work best for you, it really depends on what effect you are going for in your beverage! Sample them both, and then go with the one that works best for you!

Simply add a pinch or two directly to your favorite beverage, mix it with cocktail syrups, juices, liqueurs, liquors or spirits, or keg the glitter in a full blown production on your next specialty craft beer production run & watch heads turn to do a double take!

Our Brew Glitter® and Brew Dust® products are made with highest quality ingredients on the market, use only FDA compliant ingredients, are tasteless and they don't dissolve!

What Makes Brew Glitter® Different From The Other Brands?

Brew Glitter’s sister company is (Bakell®), one of the largest cake & craft supply companies in the US! In other words, we know the glitter, luster dust & disco market really well — we have been doing this a long time! Ok, So what makes Brew Glitter® so different than other edible dusts out there?

  • Brew Glitter® is not your typical “luster dust, petal dust, disco dust or dazzler dust” which you can buy at any craft store or hobby store like a Michaels® or any other cake decorating supplies store (and even at of course, wink~wink). Luster dusts & the like are made for food & confectionery items first, everything else is second. In other words, luster dusts & petal dusts are not designed or manufactured to go in beverages, so although it kind of works, it really doesn't. So why is this important to know?
  • Brew Glitter® is a far, far more “fine-grounded" powder which allows the glitter to suspend and swirl in a drink for a much longer period of time as opposed to a typical luster dust which will either float to the top or sink after 15-20 seconds or so. So although Brew Glitter® has similar characteristics to glitters & dusts like luster dusts, the fact is Brew Glitter® dusts & glitters could not be more different.
  • Most importantly, Brew Glitter® SPARKLES & SHINES! Brew Glitter® is FAR more “pearlescent” than even the shinest luster dusts out there. Meaning it is far more glittery, sparkly & shimmery than that of a typical luster dust or disco dust to allow our beverage-ready Brew Glitter® glitters to really SHINE and SPARKLE through the liquid ✨✨

We developed Brew Glitter® dusts & glitters to do one thing really-really well, & that is to make beverages & liquids really shine, glitter, shimmer and swirl! There is a reason why is the #1 site for edible beverage glitters, because the Brew Glitter® mission is simple - we make every drink shimmer!
