Increment in drying temperature led to significant reduction of betacyanins
and betaxanthins in pitaya peels, which is consistent with Mello et al.
A class of water soluble nitrogen containing plant pigments of the order Caryophyllales which consists of the yellow betaxanthins and the violet betacyanins
(Gandia-Herrero, Escribano, & Garcia-Carmona, 2005; Yusuf, Shabbir, & Mohammad, 2017).
Tissue localization of betacyanins
in cactus stems.
Beets have pigments betacyanins
(mostly betaine) and betaxanthine; grapes anthocyanins; and collard greens have chlorophyll, lutein and beta-carotene.
It's harmless, and is due to failure to digest certain betacyanins
- the chemical responsible for making beetroots maroon red.
Betalains constituted red-violet betacyanins
and yellow-orange betaxanthins.
They have high levels of iron, vitamins A, C and B9 and magnesium, potassium and betacyanins
