  • Anthocyanins are water-soluble pigments providing a vast range of colours from red to blue in flowers, fruits, leaves and storage organs of many plants (Pervaiz et al., 2017) and belong to the large phenolic family known as flavonoids. Due to electron deficiency, they are highly active towards reactive oxygen species (ROS) and have free radical scavenging and antioxidative properties. Numerous structures of anthocyanins have been reported across plant species (Gollop et al., 2002). Considered… CONTINUE READING
