So, what is betanine?

Betanine is a natural food colorant that is extracted from beets. It is a reddish-purple pigment that is commonly used in the food industry to add color to various products, such as beverages, candies, and baked goods. Betanine is known for its excellent stability, making it a popular choice for food manufacturers who want a long-lasting, vibrant color in their products. Additionally, betanine is also believed to have antioxidant properties, making it a potentially beneficial ingredient for human health. Its natural origin and stability make betanine an attractive alternative to synthetic food colorants for consumers who are looking for more natural food options.
