Product Description

Product Introduction of Natural Food Colors


Phycocyanin is a blue pigment extracted from Spirulina, an all-natural food colouring. Phycocyanin is one of the rare pigmented proteins found in nature. Not only is it brightly coloured, but it is also a nutritious protein in its own right and a good health food. It is the only Chemicalbook natural blue colouring recognised by the US FDA. The European Union has classified algal cyanidin as a coloured food ingredient and its use in food is not restricted. China's GB2760 food additive catalogue also allows the use of algae blue as a natural colouring agent. Algocyanin can also be used as a raw material for pharmaceutical and cosmetic products, biochemical reagents, etc.

Product Application of Natural Food Colors

Research on the application of algal cyanobacteria is widespread and can be summarised as follows:

1.Natural food colouring: Algal cyanobacteria are water-soluble pigments, pure blue, clear and lovely, and can be used as food colouring agents and additives in cosmetics. And itself is very rich in protein.

2.Pharmaceutical health food: algae cyanin isolated experiments proved to have the effect of stimulating the production of red blood cell colonies, similar to erythropoietin (EPO). Phycocyanin can help regulate the synthesis of a variety of important enzymes needed by the human body, and is important for Chemicalbook to inhibit the growth of cancer cells, as well as regulating the human immune system, enhancing the function of the immune system and improving the body's resistance to disease.

3.Cosmetic field: Algocyanin is a collagen-like protein with antioxidant, moisturizing and anti-allergic effects, and spot removal. (4) Special reagents for biology, chemistry and cytology experiments: phycocyanin is blue and fluorescent, and can be used as a research reagent for some photodynamic studies in biology and cytology. It can also be used as a biochemical marker.
