Full Answer

Different colors of chopping boards are used in the kitchen to prevent cross contamination. They are sold in entire sets with all the colors, or they can be purchased individually. Using separate chopping boards for different types of food products helps to prevent the spread of bacteria by ensuring that the cook does not place fresh vegetables on the same chopping boards used to cut raw meat or poultry.
