Product Description

 

High quality of spirulina extract powder: phycocyanin powder E18 min

 

1. Application of Phycocyanin

    a. The product phycocyanin, produced by Aphanizomenon flos-aquae and Spirulina, is used in the food and beverage industry as a natural coloring agent 'Lina Blue' and is found in sweets and ice cream.

    b. phycocyanin can be used as Nutritious.

    c.  phycocyanin can anti-cancer and strenthen immune system.

 

2. Intoduction of Phycocyanin

Phycocyanin is a pigment from the light-harvesting phycobiliprotein family, along with allophycocyanin and phycoerythrin. It is an accessory pigment to chlorophyll. All phycobiliproteins are water-soluble and therefore cannot exist within the membrane as do carotenoids, but aggregate forming clusters that adhere to the membrane called phycobilisomes.

 

Phycocyanin is a characteristic light blue colour, absorbing orange and red light, particularly near 620 nm (depending on which specific type it is), and emits fluorescence at about 650 nm (also depending on which type it is).

 

Allophycocyanin absorbs and emits at longer wavelengths than Phycocyanin C or Phycocyanin R. Phycocyanins are found in Cyanobacteria (previously called blue-green algae). Phycobiliproteins have fluorescent properties that are used in immunoassay kits.

 

3. Name of Phycocyanin

Phycocyanin is from the Greek phyco meaning “algae” and cyanin is from the English word “cyan", which conventionally means a shade of blue-green (close to "aqua") and is derived from the Greek “kyanos" which means a somewhat different color: "dark blue."

FAQ

 1.  MOQ: 1kg

 

2.   Ingredient: Porphyrin chorophyll-protein in Cyanobacteria

 

3.   Character: Blue powder, water soluble, alcohol and lipid insoluble

 

Phycocyanin is the bluish pigment used by blue-green algae (or cyanobacteria) to photosynthesize.

It accounts for as much as 20% of protein in cyanobacteria, and attaches itself to photosynthesizing membranes.

It act as a nitrogen-storing molecule. There is no metal in phycocyanin, and it is a very stable protein.

 

Phycocyanin may also act as an antioxidant. It appears to scavenge OH and RO radicals quite well. It may also work

as well as some NSAIDS to treat inflammation, and seems to have positive effects on liver microsomal lipid peroxidation.

 

Pigment derived from phycocyanin such as C-phycocyanin and Allophycocyanin have fluorescent properties that are

valuable to researchers in immumo assay kits. Phycocyanin is selective about which cells it attaches to making it simple

to track down.

 

It’s also used as a coloring agent in biological research, and as a natural color in a number of foods and cosmetics

because it is so safe.
