Phycocyanin, Blue Spirulina, Spirulina Extract, Natural Pigments
Blue Spirulina (also known as phycocyanin, phycocyanin) is extracted from spirulina, soluble in water, with anti-tumor, immune enhancement, anti-inflammatory, and other functions. In water will be blue, which is a natural blue pigment protein. It is not only a natural colorant but also a protein supplement for the human body.
Phycocyanin is a natural blue pigment and functional raw material, so it can be used as the raw material for food, cosmetics, and nutritional health products to avoid the harm of chemical compounds to the human body. As a natural pigment, phycocyanin is not only rich in nutrition but also can be mixed with other natural pigments in different proportions to achieve the coloring effect that other natural pigments cannot achieve.

used as a natural pigment and functional raw material in food and beverage
Phycocyanin is the extract of Spirulina platensis. It is extracted by concentration, centrifugation, filtration, and isothermal extraction. Only water is added to the whole process. It is a very safe natural blue pigment and a functional raw material with rich nutrition.
Phycocyanin is one of the few plant proteins in nature, which is in line with the current popular trend of plant base, plant protein, clean label, and so on. Phycocyanin is rich in high-quality protein γ- Linolenic acid, fatty acid, and the eight kinds of amino acids needed by the human body are the micronutrients that are easier to recognize and absorb in the human body. It has high nutritional value, so it is known as a "Food Diamond."
Phycocyanin is usually a blue particle or powder, which belongs to protein binding pigment, so it has the same properties as protein, and its isoelectric point is 3.4. Soluble in water, insoluble in alcohol and oil. It is unstable to heat, light, and acid. It is stable in weak acidity and neutral (pH 4.5 ~ 8), precipitates in acidity (pH 4.2), and decolorizes in strong alkali.
