Phycocyanin Powder Blue Pigment Protein | Top Quality | BINMEI

Phycocyanin powder is the star that is more active than spirulina! Our natural coloring for F&B is under super quality control and proven to be good for health.

Top Quality Phycocyanin

Phycocyanin powder is the "light-trapping antenna" of algae and a very powerful nutrient. Phycocyanin powder contains an open-chain tetrapyrrole ring structure of phycocyanobilin, with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, enhance immunity, and other physiological activities, in functional food, dietary supplements, medicine, and other fields have good prospects for application. Algal blue protein is the most powerful natural water-soluble ingredient with the strongest antioxidant capacity discovered so far.

Phycocyanin powder (C-PC) occurs as the major phycobiliprotein in many cyanobacteria and as a secondary phycobiliprotein in some red algae. The pigment has a single visible absorption maximum between 615 and 620 nm and a fluorescence emission maximum at ~650 nm. Its molecular weight is between 70,000 and 110,000 daltons. The pigment is composed of two subunits, α and β, which occur in equal numbers, but the exact number of α and β pairs which make up the molecule may vary among the species. Both α and β subunits contain only the PCB chromophore. In addition to absorbing light directly, this intensely blue pigment accepts quanta from phycoerythrin by fluorescent energy transfer in organisms in which PE is present. The red fluorescence of phycocyanin powder (C-PC) is transferred to allophycocyanin

Phycocyanin powder is also used for coloring food and beverages and is the only natural blue pigment permitted under current food regulations.

Otherwise, phycocyanin powder is also used as a fluorescent agent, with the fluorescence of phycocyanin powder being 30 times higher than that of ordinary fluorescein.

Benefits of Phycocyanin

Phycocyanin, nicknamed "blue gold" is from spirulina. It has proven to be 6000 to 7000 times more active than spirulina itself and 20 times more potent than vitamin C.


Rich Nutritional Value

Phycocyanin is a combination of phycocyanobilin and protein, which is a high-quality plant protein in nature. Algae Cyanin is usually extremely high in protein and usually harbors a wide range of essential amino acids.


Rich Functions

Phycocyanin is more than just a recognized anti-cancer natural ingredient and super antioxidant. Algae Cyanin also has multiple benefits such as boosting immunity, anti-inflammatory and blemish relief, liver protection, and helping the body fight specific diseases such as leukemia.


Super Fluorescent Effect

Algae blue protein has special purple fluorescence, which is 30 times more than ordinary fluorescein. Phycocyanin is also a light-trapping antenna in algal cells and is directly involved in photosynthesis. Due to the photodynamic and photo-excitation of light energy to phycocyanin and the occurrence of photosensitive reaction, used as a foliar fertilizer can stimulate the growth rate of plants, and at the same time, it has an antiviral and antibacterial effect.


Wide Range of Applications

Phycocyanin can be used in almost every corner of life, including food and beverage coloring (colored food ingredients rather than food additives), enhancing the nutritional value and efficacy of products, make-up and cosmetics, dietary supplements, foliar fertilizers for crops and fluorescent reagents for biochemistry and cytology.

Our Product

Spirulina extract is a natural blue food colorant that is extracted from spirulina (blue-green algae) with water, the main component is phycocyanin. It is very safe and healthy without any chemical solvent. Spirulina extract is the only natural blue pigment that is approved by USA and EU. It can be widely used in food & beverage coloring: such as ice cream, chewing gum, and candy, etc.

Product Application & Stability

Since spirulina extract is extracted from plant algae, it is a colorant combined with protein. It has poor stability to heat, therefore, heating treatment will cause discoloration. However, if add blue after cooling down or at about 60℃ or used together with other ingredients containing protein, its color stability improves, its color stability will improve. It may maintain the charming blue color. Therefore, we suggest that your product be fully developed and tested before being launched.
