Beet red is also known as Beet root red. Beet root red is a natural pigment made from edible red beets through extraction, separation, concentration and drying. The main ingredients are beet anthocyanins and beet yellows. The product is a red-purple to deep purple liquid, block or powder, easily soluble in water, the aqueous solution presents red to purple-red, bright color.
The aqueous solution is red to reddish purple, with a relatively stable pH between 3.0 and 7.0, and the most stable pH between 4.0 and 5.0. The dyeing property is good, but the heat resistance is poor, and the degradation rate increases with the temperature rise. Light and oxygen can also promote degradation. Ascorbic acid has a certain protective effect, and its stability increases with the decrease of food water activity (Aw).
