So, what is antocianine?

Anthocyanins are a class of water-soluble pigments that give fruits and vegetables their vibrant hues of red, blue, and purple. These natural colorants occur in plants as glycosides, which means they are bound to sugars that can be broken down by enzymes during digestion. Besides providing an aesthetically pleasing appearance to food, anthocyanins also possess antioxidant properties that have been linked to various health benefits, such as reducing inflammation, improving cardiovascular health, and enhancing cognitive function. Some common sources of anthocyanins include blackberries, blueberries, red grapes, eggplants, and red cabbage.
