Overview

Chlorophyll E140

Chlorophyll is a green pigment that is found in all plants that are capable of photosynthesis and it has thus always been a key component of our diet. Chlorophyll Colour is derived from three main vegetable or plant sources namely Spinach, Alfalfa and Nettles. It is oil soluble pigment and provides an olive green shade of colour.

Copper Chlorophyllin E141

Copper Chlorophyllin is obtained by the coppering of Chlorophyll which follows its alkaline hydrolysis. The improved stability and brightness of Copper Chlorophyllin leads to its much wider use than Chlorophyll as a food colour.

Both the aforementioned have focused uses and are thus used in Sugar Confectioneries, Mint Based Products, Sauces, Pickles, Jams and Dry Mixes.
