Chlorophyllin by structure is a water soluble salt. It is processed by the alkaline hydrolysis of chlorophyll using copper. The structure of chlorophyll consists of nitrogen, hydrocarbons, carbon & oxygen around the magnesium atom. Chlorophyll is capable of processing the sunlight into energy and carbon dioxide into oxygen. Therefore its is used as a source of energy in various forms. Sodium copper chlorophyllin is derived through the process of alkaline hydrolysis where the magnesium atom is replaced with sodium and copper.
It is a stabilized chlorophyll. It is available in green to black powder or liquid form and is insoluble in water. It is quite stable in normal conditions when there is not much fluctuation on light or heat. But noticeable.
1. It has superior coloring strength and good stabilization in neutral and alkali solutions.
