Colorants derived from nature are increasingly popular due to consumer demand. Anthocyanins are a class of naturally occurring pigments that produce red-purple-blue hues in nature, especially when interacting with metal ions and co-pigments. The role of various acylations of cyanidin (Cy) derivatives on color expression and stability of Al3+ and Fe3… CONTINUE READING
