Chlorophyll Oil Soluble

Description : Chlorophyll, oil soluble is a pigment used for biochemical research. This pigment naturally occurs in plants, cyanobacteria, and algae.

Chlorophyll is the generic name for several fat-soluble green plant pigments which includes the open-chain bile pigments and the large ring compounds. The structure of chlorophyll molecule has four nitrogen-containing pyrrole rings bonded to a central magnesium atom, and the fifth ring containing only carbon atoms, and various long hydrocarbon tails attached to the pyrrole rings. The molecular structure of the chlorophylls is similar to that of the heme bound to proteins forming hemoglobin, except that the latter contains iron(II) ion in the center of the porphyrin. Chlorophyll a and b are the most common of the several chlorophyll molecules. Chlorophylls a  is a waxy blue-black microcrystalline green-plant pigment, C55H72MgN4O5, with a characteristic blue-green alcohol solution. Chlorophyll occurs in all organisms exhibiting aerobic photosynthesis (green plants, algae, and cyanobacteria). Chlorophyll b, occurs in higher plants, is a similar green-plant pigment,C55H70MgN4O6, having a brilliant green alcohol solution. There are chlorophylls c1 and c2 in diatoms and brown algae, and chlorophyll d in red algae.

Uses : Chlorophyll Oil Soluble is a natural green food coloring. Chlorophyll gives the product an olive tone and can be used in the manufacture of ice cream, cream, dairy desserts, in sauces such as mayonnaise and others.
