Spirulina Extract Phycocyanin Powder used as Natural Blue Pigment
We Beyond Biopharma supplies phycocyanin powder extracted from Spirulina. It is usually used as natural blue pigment for healthy food coloring.
Phycocyanin belongs to the Phycobiliprotein. Phycocyanin is a water-soluble protein divided into three major categories: phycoerythrin (PE), phycocyanin (PC) and allophycocyanin (A-PC). The current study found that phycocyanin has a certain medical value, can promote the immune system to improve the ability to resist various diseases, at the same time, spirulina phycocyanin also inhibits some cancer cells.
We supply phycocyanin with color value of E18 (E10%618 ≥180) used as natural colorant in foods and supplements industry.

Applications of Phycocyanin E18 Powder ?
1. Phycocyanin, which is mainly found in the inner capsule membrane of cyanobacteria, is a key pigment for photosynthetic reaction of algae. It is widely used as a food additive in the coloration of food production such as ice cream, confectionery and cakes. It is used as immunofluorescence in clinical medicine. Agents and anti-tumor drugs.
2. The phycocyanin in spirulina plays an important role as an antioxidant in many biological systems. By studying the spirulina fermented by lactic acid bacteria, it was found that during the fermentation process, the total phenolic substances increased to 1.73 times after the cell wall biodegraded, and the released small molecules had stronger antioxidant activity.
3. Spirulina is an important source of phycocyanin, a pigment that has significant antioxidant properties and is also critical for skin care. Therefore, the development of antioxidant functional foods and UV protection products using spirulina has a good application prospect.
