Phycocyanin

Phycocyanin is a phycobiliprotein that is purified from edible spirulina by water extraction and membrane separation technology. It is the most unique active substance in the nutritional components of spirulina. This natural Blue pigment is pure and clear.

Phycocyanin can be used as a functional food. It has been reported that phycocyanin has anti-oxidative function, anti-inflammatory activity, anti-cancer function, immune enhancement function, liver and kidney protection pharmacological effects. Thus, phycocyanin has an important development and utilization as a potential drug, and phycocyanin has become a new hot spot in the field of drug research. So far, there are more and more studies have shown that phycocyanin has the anti-cancer effect, which can block the proliferation of cancer cells and kill cancer cells. Phycocyanin exerts anti-cancer activity by blocking tumor cell cell cycle, inducing tumor cell apoptosis and autophagy, thereby phycocyanin can serve as a promising anti-cancer agent. This review discusses the therapeutic use of phycocyanin and focuses on the latest advances of phycocyanin as a promising anti-cancer drug.


When used as a pigment, the specifications are differentiated according to color value. At present, the conventional specification is 180 color value (the color value is converted to absorbance at 618nm by UV detection under the prescribed dilution factor). Generally adding trehalose as a carrier can increase the stability of the product. Phycocyanin of higher color value can also be customized.

Both the color value and content represent the content of phycocyanin in the final product, and the higher the color value, the higher the content. The 180-color product corresponds to a phycocyanin content of 25% ~ 30%

Used as a food additive in China. It has not yet been listed in the food or new food ingredient catalog. The "Sanitary Standards for the Use of Food Additives" (GB2760-2014) stipulates that it can be used in candy, jelly, popsicles, ice cream, ice cream, cheese products, fruit juice (flavor) beverages, and the maximum use amount is 0.8g/kg.

However, the European Union has a standard to determine whether an extract can be used as a food ingredient equivalent to its source of extraction, that is, as foods with colorful property (colored food) or colorant (pigment). Phycocyanin meets this standard and can be used as a food ingredient as a spirulina extract or concentrate.
