General description

Betanin is a red-violet pigment utilized as a natural red colorant in food and pharmaceutical products.


Betanin is a glycosidic, indoline pigment that derives from red beets. Betanin has been used as a building block for chemical synthesis, as a food additive, and in analytical, material, and biological studies. This same product was formerly listed as CDS000584, offered red beet extract diluted with dextrin. Betanin is susceptible to degradation in light and elevated temperatures. When kept dry, it is stable to oxygen.
