About anthocyanins

Anthocyanins are water-soluble natural pigments widely found in plants and belong to flavonoids. It is also the main coloring substance in plant petals, and most of the colorful colors such as fruits, vegetables, and flowers are related to it. Anthocyanins exist in the vacuoles of plant cells and can be transformed from chlorophyll. Under different pH conditions of plant cell vacuoles, the petals show colorful colors. Studies have shown that phenylalanine is the direct precursor of anthocyanin and other flavonoid biosynthesis. And from phenylalanine to anthocyanin, there are roughly three stages: the production of alanine into coumarin, the conversion of coumarin into dihydroflavonol, and the synthesis of various anthocyanins.
