Chlorophyll – Chlorophyllin 

Natural Green Colorants.  

Chlorophyll is the green prigment found in leaves, grass, vegetables and all organisms capable of photosynthesis.
Chlorophyl is an oil soluble pigment obtained from lucerne, nettle, Spinach and Grass, providing an olive green colour. 
Chlorophyllin is obtained by the addition of copper and then hydrolysis, resulting in Copper Chlorophyllin. This is water soluble providing a green/blue to yellowish green colour. 
The Cu Chlorophyllin pigment is very stable towards light and heat, whereas standard Chlorophyllin has poor stability in both of these conditions.
