One of the most intriguing sources of natural color utilized in food and cosmetics is the butterfly pea. The primary pigments in its petals, anthocyanins, are readily removed with water. The stability of the aqueous extract from the butterfly pea petals was discovered to be influenced by the pH of the medium, temperature(Thermal stability), and light (Photo-sensitive).The climber known as butterfly pea Clitoria ternatea typically thrives in tropical climates. Its bluish petals are reported to store ternatin. Ternatin’s are a class of delphinidin glycoside anthocyanin pigments that dissolve readily in water. Traditional uses for butterfly pea flower aqueous extracts include food coloring and hair coloring. Due to widespread worries about the safety of various harmful synthetic dyes, the use of natural dyes is now preferred in many sectors in place of synthetic dyes.
