Phycyanin is a kind of natural food pigment extracted and processed from blue algae. Its color is bright blue, and it is very rich in protein. Phycyanin can help to regulate the synthesis of a variety of important enzymes needed by the human body, which plays an important role in inhibiting the growth of cancer cells and promoting the regeneration of human cells. At the same time, phycyanin can also regulate the immune system of the human body, enhance the function of the immune system, and improve the resistance of the human body to diseases. So phycyanin is called diamond food. This product belongs to protein binding pigment, porphyrin pigment protein in cyanobacteria, and protein has the same properties. Blue particles or powder. Soluble in water. Insoluble in alcohols and oils. Organic solvents such as ethanol can cause irreversible denaturation of phycocyanin. Its aqueous solution is a bright blue. The pigment was extracted from the spores of Spirulina platensisArthorspira platenis using modern biotechnology. Phycyanin is also the only natural blue pigment approved by the US FDA. The European Union is also passing relevant laws and regulations. The Chinese GB2760 Food Additive Catalogue also allows phycyanin to be used as a natural colorant. This trend is becoming more and more urgent due to the strong market demand and people's concern about healthy living. Currently on a global scale, natural red pigment and the staggering growth of demand for the natural yellow pigment, as a basic color red yellow LanSanDa natural blue pigment application less, there are two reasons for the main, one is the lack of natural blue series natural substance, the second is no big breakthrough in algal blue industrialized production technology, lead to high production cost, DIC Company in Japan is one of the few companies that have mastered the industrial production technology of algal blue, but its production cost is very high and it is difficult to meet the market demand. Therefore, if the production cost can be effectively controlled, phycyanin, as a natural blue pigment, has an irreplaceable position, and its market capacity is very large.

In addition, as a functional component, phycyanin has been continuously proved by scientific research institutions in aspects of anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, blood tonic, liver protection, ovarian maintenance, anti-oxidation and increase of white blood cells. The fluorescence properties of phycyanin is also an excellent material for tumor photodynamic targeted therapy, which is currently being studied in many units for clinical application. Phycyanin related health care products and beauty products in Japan and Taiwan have been relatively mature. Phycyanin has been developed as a compound drug in the United States and Japan, and is also used as a veterinary drug in the United Kingdom and the United States. Phycyanin is a light capture antenna in algae cells, so it also has a certain prospect in agriculture. The research on phycyanin leaf fertilizer by Beijing Academy of Agricultural Sciences and Shandong Vegetable Research Institute proved that it can better improve the photosynthesis of plants, improve the utilization rate of light, but also has antibacterial effect.

Besides, it can also be used in food additives, such as ice cream, chewing gum, powder drinks, cool drinks, cake balls, dim sum, candy, jelly, stuffing, noodles, mustard, sugar coated tablets, capsules. (Non-dyeable food: kelp, wakame, edible meat, beans, vegetables (except processed food of this kind of food), fresh fish and shells, tea, nori and laver.)
