The role of gardenia yellow in the food industry

Gardenia jasminoides ellis is native to central China and is now widely cultivated in the world. Gardenia fruit is rich in gardenia yellow pigment, which has the effects of clearing heat, promoting blood circulation and detoxification. Past research has focused on the extraction and refining of gardenia yellow pigments and the basic properties of pigments. However, there are few studies on the application characteristics in food.

In fact, gardenia yellow is also a food additive. Gardenia yellow pigment can inhibit the oxidation of linoleic acid by 80%, so it can be used as an antioxidant in food processing. Gardenia yellow pigment has excellent dyeing ability for protein, starch, etc., and can be widely used in various foods such as cakes, candy, beverages, and biscuits.
