Basic Information

PRODUCT NAME: Phycocyanin Powder/Spirulina blue
GRADE: Food grade
PART USED: Whole part
ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Phycocyanin, protein
APPEARANCE: Blue powder


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.

2. Applied in food field, phycocyanin powder used as pigments, food additives of seasoning;
3. Applied in pharmaceutical field, phycocyanin powder used as raw materials for anti-inflammatory and regulating menstruation.
