    Food Grade Acid-Base Indicator

    As the aqueous solution of Butterfly Bean Flower contains a large amount of anthocyanin, the aqueous solution shows a magenta colour when it is strongly acidic, the stronger the acidity, the redder the colour. In an acidic and neutral environment, the solution is stable and shows blue colour. In an alkaline environment, it shows green, the stronger the alkaline, the colour becomes yellow.


    Improve Memory

    The anthocyanin content in the extract of tofu pudding is 10 times more than that of ordinary plants, 8 times more than that of Lycium barbarum, and 20 times more than that of grape seed extract. Unlike other antioxidants, anthocyanins can cross the blood-brain barrier and directly protect the brain center. A study also showed that using 100mg/kg butterfly pea water extract can increase acetylcholine in the hippocampus.


    Builds the Skin's Natural Protective Barrier

    The delphinidin anthocyanin component of butterfly pea flower extract can reduce and repair the damage to skin cells caused by UV radiation. Studies have shown that delphinidin anthocyanin can reduce the mortality rate of human liver cancer HepG2 cells caused by ultraviolet light, maintain the original normal shape of the cells, and reduce the degree of cellular DNA damage.


    The delphinium pigment, poplar flavonoids, and quercetin flavonoids in butterfly pea extract can significantly reduce the level of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in endothelial cells, thus reducing oxidative stress damage to vascular endothelial cells, inhibiting apoptosis of vascular endothelial cells and vascular inflammation, and providing a guarantee for the smoothness of the skin's internal material exchange channels.


    Natural Colour Enhancer

    Pterocarpus indicus extract can also be used as a natural colour enhancer in skin care products in certain quantities. Adding Pterostilbene extract to a clear, colourless aqueous solution or cream gives it a pleasantly refreshing pale blue appearance. For yellowish creams, the addition of blue-violet pterostilbene extract makes the blue light reflected by it superimposed on the yellow light reflected by the cream to form a complementary white light, which has a whitening effect on the cream.


    In the Food Field:

    The FDA has approved pterostilbene extract as a food coloring for use in alcoholic, non-alcoholic, and carbonated soft drinks, as well as chewing gum and dairy products.


    In Southeast Asia, butterfly peas are used as a natural food coloring. In traditional Thai cooking, butterfly pea flowers are squeezed to obtain a blue extract,  then mixed with coconut milk and other base ingredients to give Thai desserts their natural blue and purple color.' Nam dok anchan' is a syrupy, refreshing indigo drink usually consumed in Thailand made from butterfly pea flowers, honey, and sugar syrup. The flowers are also dipped in batter and deep-fried in Burmese and Thai cuisine. Butterfly pea flower tea is made from ternatea flowers and dried lemongrass and changes color depending on what is added to the liquid, with lemon juice turning it purple.
