Spirulina blue color is a blue pigment and the most commercially promising substance found in
Spirulina sp (Liang et al., 2004,Iyer et al., 2007). It is a water-soluble phycobiliprotein (PBP) and photosynthetic accessory pigment(Eriksen, 2008). Its main function is to collect and transfer light
energy for the chlorophyll when the chlorophyll experiences poor absorption and transfer (Bennett and
Bogorad, 1973, Zilinskas and Greenwald, 1986, Grossman et al., 1994). Spirulina blue color absorbs
light at a wavelength of approximately 620 nm and emits light (or fluoresces) at approximately 640 nm
(Bennett and Bogorad, 1973). It serves to store nitrogen and is selectively degraded when the cells are starved of nitrogen (Grossman et al., 2001, Sloth et al., 2006).

This product has been mainly used as a nutritional ingredient, a fluorescent marker or as a natural dye in foods or cosmetics and is also known to be antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiplatelet, anti-cancer, antifungal and antiviral in nature. It also has nephroprotective and hepatoprotective properties (Eriksen, 2008). Moreover, phycobiliproteins have yet to be reviewed in the literature (Manirafasha et al., 2016, Stadnichuk and Tropin, 2017). Among its numerous bioactivities, the antioxidant function of Spirulina blue color may have the most value. In fact, it can protect the living cell from oxidative stress by delaying or inhibiting lipid oxidation(Chadwick et al., 2003). Evidence taken from medical treatments has revealed that the intake of antioxidant food constituents can maintain a balance between the antioxidant system and reactive oxygen species (ROS) production (Chadwick et al., 2003, Samaranayaka and Li-Chan, 2011). Thus, the human body can fight various diseases such as atherosclerosis, alzheimer, cancer, diabetes mellitus, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory diseases and the aging process (Wu et al., 2005, Durackova, 2010).
