Colour is also an important parameter for sensory analysis and consumer preference.

Table 1 shows the colour shade and EEC No. Bacteria The carotene production by a pigmented strain of bacteria Bacillus alkaliphilic yellow. Mould The pigment production by a mould of Monascus group, especially, Monascus purpurous and Monascus ankafor use as a food colour.

Many foods can be produced through microbial fermentation with greater efficiency. F ood spoiling xerophytic yeast produces highly pigmented colonies, which may also contribute in the natural colouring for food in near future. However using synthetic colour could be harmful for health of a consumer.

Some sources of anthocyanins, besides grapes are elderberries, red cabbage, blood orange, the less familiar black chokeberry and sweet potato. The colour of food is an integral part of our culture and enjoyment of life.

The natural colour include: Reduction or even elimination of co extracted material thus minimizing or avoiding problems of the co-extracted material. There are several reasons for the addition of colours to food as mentioned below:.

The Biocolours Program Committee will select abstracts for presentation based on the relevance to the topics. Presentation Description No description available. The Biocolours conference program will include presentations from keynotes, in addition to those presentations selected through the Call for Abstracts process. Table 2 shows the salient features of some important biocolours.

However subsequent toxicological evidences boicolours adverse physiological effects of many such synthetic food colours has resulted in their removal from the permitted colour list for food uses and even more are likely to be banned in near future. As consumer demand for natural product grows, these natural colourants are replacing synthetic food colourants.

These phycobilin proteins have potential as natural colourants for use in food, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals particularly as substitutes for synthetic dyes. For Eg – powder of beetroot extract has a characteristic odour, high nitrate and nitrite content, which limits its application in foods.

The alternation may be brought about by: In the decade of sixty, synthetic colours such as azo dyes became highly popular owing to their low cost and easy availability.

The protein bound pigments are separated by protenase treatment and extracted into dilute alkali. To protect flavors and vitamins bocolours may be affected by sunlight.

Antioxidant activity biocllours protecting cells against oxidative damage which leads to degenerative diseases such as cancer, arthritis. Traditional method for extraction of pigment: Traditional method for extraction of pigment. Bicolour is any dye obtained from any vegetable, animal or mineral, that is capable of colouring food, drugs, cosmetics or any part of human body.

It is believed to have a beneficial effect in reducing the risk of some cancers and perhaps heat diseases. As per FDA colour pigments having a natural origin are exempt from certification. The principal natural colours, most of which in refined form used as additives are the green pigment chlorophyll, the carotenoids which give yellow to red colours; and the flavonoids with their principal subclass the anthocyanins, which impart red to blue colours to flowers and fruits.

Besides being a natural orange pigment present in carrots, mango, papaya, tomato, winter squash, etc. Comments 0 Login to reply to this article.

Genetic modification for pigment production. The most important point about anthocyanins is their strong antioxidant abilities and other health promoting properties.

It is therefore advantageous to produce natural colours from different methods. With the advent of strict legislative regulations and growing awareness among the consumers about food safety, bicolour have become the choice in the foods as they are extracted from sources of biological origin and are much safer than their synthetic counterparts. A tight sealed container is best to store the product in a cool storage to preserve colour strength and quality, along with its degree of cooling point.

More reliable and predictable, since it is independent of weather, season, plant variability etc. A few commonly used natural colours are Annatto seedturmeric, beet juice rootbell bkocolours, red cabbage vegetablespinach leaf etc.

Simple biocoloours easy extraction due to highly aqueous aggregates of cells instead of complex tissues of plant organs.

Continuous production currently not available- most pigments are not excreted by the cells but are stored within them. The production is a two stage process, first stage is buocolours optimizing organism for growth, and second is for pigment production.
