Product Introduction of Gardenia Blue Powder:

Gardenia Blue, a natural food pigment, is got from the gardenia (Gardenia jasminoides ELLIS) fruit of madder family by biological fermentation.

Gardenia Blue natural dye is made from the seeds of the cape jasmine, gardenia jasminoides. Gardenia seeds have been used for centuries as a yellow dye in East Asia, and in the 1980s Japanese scientists discovered that they would also produce a blue pigment if they were fermented with a natural amino acid. This process was recently improved when scientists identified some naturally heat-resistant amino acids, which made it possible to produce even darker, more concentrated gardenia seed extractions. Use at 10% weight-of-fabric on fibers mordanted with alum.
