Anthocyanidin (Anthocyanidin), also known as anthocyanin, is a class of water-soluble natural pigments that widely exist in plants in nature. It is also the main coloring substance in plant petals, and most of the colorful colors of fruits, like vegetables, and flowers that are all related to it. Anthocyanins exist in the vacuoles of plant cells and can be converted from chlorophyll. Under the different pH conditions of plant cell vacuoles, the petals show colorful colors. In autumn, the soluble sugar increases, the cells are acidic, and they appear red or purple under acidic conditions, so the red and purple petals are caused by anthocyanin. And the depth of its color is positively correlated with the content of anthocyanin. It turns blue under alkaline conditions. The color of anthocyanins is affected by many factors. Adverse environments such as low temperature, hypoxia and phosphorus deficiency will also promote the formation and accumulation of anthocyanins. Anthocyanins are glycoside derivatives, and their basic structures are as follows:
In 2019, the size of China's anthocyanin market was 455 million yuan, the market size of anthocyanin in 2020 was 477 million yuan, and the market size in 2021 reached 499 million yuan.
At present, there are more than 500 manufacturers involved in the production of plant extracts in my country, of which there are more than 200 exporting companies. The production and operation are scattered, and most of them are small and medium-sized enterprises. Among them, there are about 10 large and influential ones that can provide black rice anthocyanin products. Anthocyanin market saturation is not high.
It is predicted that the market size of China's anthocyanin industry will reach 524 million yuan in 2022, and the market size will reach 637 million yuan by 2026, with a compound annual growth rate of 5%.
Because anthocyanins have many functions such as preventing cancer, promoting blood circulation, improving vision, anti-oxidation, anti-wrinkle formation, improving sleep, protecting and stabilizing vitamin C, and inhibiting lipid oxidation, it is widely used in food, cosmetics, medicine, etc. It has huge application potential. Therefore, the development and application of natural pigments has become the general trend of the development of food pigments in the world. As a high-tech enterprise, Lanxiao Technology will continue to pursue breakthroughs and innovations in this field and lead the anthocyanin industry to a larger market!
