Beet pigment only has antioxidant activity, but also can play a role in chemical prevention of cancer, can prevent the occurrence of malignant tumors.
2. Food processing
As a kind of natural pigment, beet pigment is safe non-toxic, can be used as food coloring for coloring protecting food. Edible beet is the main source of beet erythrocyte. The concentrated juice of beet root is usually used as food additive in the food industry.

1, beet pigment can be antioxidant, free radical scavenging, anti-fatigue.
2, anthocyanins have antioxidant, prevent the formation of skin wrinkles, improve vision other effects.
3. Chlorophyll has the functions of promoting hematopoiesis, activating cells, antibacterial anti-inflammatory, anti-ulcer, protecting liver anti-mutagenesis.
4. Carotenoids can reduce age-related prostate disease age-related macular degeneration, are the scavenger of oxidized free radicals in the biological body to prevent oxidative damage to cells.
What else do natural pigments have?
1. Tetrapyrrole pigment
Including heme in meat chlorophyll in green vegetables. They are good at capturing transmitting light energy like to "trap" metal ions.
It includes a range of pigments yellow to orange yellow to red, including carotene in carrots, oranges, mangoes pumpkins, lycopene in watermelon, tomatoes blood oranges. What lutein, zeaxanthin, citrus flavin, capsaicin, astaxanthin so on belong to this kind.
3. Polyphenolic pigments
It includes anthocyanins other flavonoid pigments, such as flavonoids. Anthocyanins are a big family, but they are very much the same, with hues ranging Burgundy to purple to blue-purple to purple-black. The color of most blue-purple purplish black foods is due to anthocyanins, such as purple potato, purple cabbage, purple onion, blueberry, mulberry, purple black cherry, black peanut, black rice, black soybean, black corn kernels, etc. Flavonoids range colorless to yellow in color, are usually light understated.
4. Beet pigment
Including beet erythrocyte beet flavin. Beet red element is actually rare, red beet head, cowskin vegetables (leaf beet), red amaranth, red pitaya fruit that kind of rose-red color, is beet red element brought.
