Botanical Source:Blue Green Algae
Assay: E50 (E10%618nm)
Color Value: E50
Test Method: UV
Phycocyanin natural blue pigment is natural light blue colorant extracted from blue-green algae ( Spirulina ). It`s good
water soluble, alcohol and lipid insoluble. Spirulina Phycocyanin accounts for as much as 20% protein and attaches
itself to photosynthesizing membranes, also it`s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.
Phycocyanin natural blue pigmen is a characteristic light blue colour, absorbing orange and red light, particularly near 618nm (depending On which specific type it is), and emits fluorescence at about 650nm (also depending on which type it is Allophycocyanin absorbs and emits at longer wavelengths than Phycocyanin C or Phycocyanin R. Phycocyanins are found in Cyanobacteria (previously called blue-green algae). Phycobiliproteins have fluorescent properties that are used in immunoassay kits.
The main chemical ingredient is C-phycocyanin (C-PC), also named Phycocyanin natural blue pigment. The biomass-solvent ratio, buffer concentration, temperature, and time regarding C-phycocyanin concentration, extract purity, and yield of C-phycocyanin were evaluated. The optimum extraction conditions for Arthrospira platensis were determined as a biomass-solvent ratio of 0.06 g mL−1 at 25 °C for 24 to 48 h. Temperature is an important factor in C-phycocyanin degradation. Citric acid was added as an edible preservative to increase the thermal stability of C-phycocyanin extracted from A. platensis, followed by incubation at 80 °C for 1 h. The initial concentration of C-phycocyanin with citric acid was reduced from 65 to 19% within 1 h; in contrast, the remaining C-phycocyanin concentration without citric acid reduced from 51 to 11%. The use of citric acid as an edible preservative increased the stability of C-phycocyanin in high thermal processing applications and extraction.
1. Phycocyanin Natural Blue Pigment is rich in carotene, has the special effect of skin care and skin care.
2. Phycocyanin is used to reduce blood fat level, lower the cholesterol and neutral fat content in blood and prevent fat accumulating in body..
3. Natural Blue Pigment contains very good amounts of minerals like calcium, iron, potassium, manganese, copper, zinc, and magnesium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure. Manganese is used by the body as a co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase. Iron is an important co-factor for cytochrome oxidase enzymes at cellular level metabolisms and required for red blood cell (RBC's) productions.
a. Produced by Aphanizomenon flos-aquae and Spirulina, is used in the food and beverage industry as a natural coloring agent and is found in sweets and ice cream.
