Phycoerythrin is a major light-harvesting pigment of red algae, which could be used as a natural dye in foods. The stability of R-phycoerythrin of Grateloupia turuturu and B-phycoerythrin of Porphyridium cruentum in relation to different light exposure times, pHs, and temperatures was studied. Regarding the light exposure time, after 48h, the reduction in concentrations of B-phycoerythrin and R-phycoerythrin were 30±2.4% and 70±1%, respectively. Phycoerythrins presented good stability from pH 4… CONTINUE READING
