Basic Info of Betanin

What is Betanin?

Betanin, or beet root red, is a red glycoside food dye extracted from beet; Its aglycone is obtained by hydrolyzing glucose molecules, which is betaine. As a food additive, its E number is E162. The color of betaine depends on the pH value; Between four and five, it is bright blue red, and turns blue purple with the increase of pH value. Once the pH reaches the alkaline level, the beet glucoside will be degraded by hydrolysis to produce a yellowish brown color. Betanin is a kind of beet pigment, together with isobetaine, probetanin and neobetaine. Other pigments contained in beets include indene flavin and ordinary flavin.

Betanin is an all-natural pigment made from edible red beet with removal, splitting up, concentration and drying out. The primary component is beetroot anthocyanin, and beet red is a red-purple to dark purple liquid, powder, as well as easily soluble.

Beet red pigment is extensively utilized in the coloring of drinks, gelato, some alcohol, sweet, cakes, meat products as well as various other foods. The tinting property of food is good, and given that the pH value of the majority of food is between 3.0 and also 7.0, and its shade does not change in this pH value range, when beet red is made use of as a food tinting representative, the color of the food will not change. will certainly be affected by pH. Acceptable dyeing as well as color lasting outcomes can be gotten with beetroot red in the production of low water task foods. Compared to other colorants, beetroot is relatively stable during food processing and storage. Beetroot can provide food the bright red color of bayberry or climbed.

The beetroot red pigment has an excellent capacity to get rid of nitrite. Consequently, in the process of generating sausages, reducing the general quantity of chitosan and supplementing it with beetroot red pigment can be utilized as a colorant for sausages and as nitrous acid. Salt scavenger.
