Crop production – Manufacturing
Chlorophyll is present in all higher plants. It is industrially extracted from leaves of various plant easy to harvest: Mulberry, Spinach, Nettle… . But it is essentially produced from Alfalfa which is the most cultivated leguminous in the world specially for animal feed.
This perennial plant of Fabaceae family is also widely used in Herbal Medicine as well as for obtaining green food coloring such as chlorophylls, chlorophyllin and copper complex of chlorophyllin.
The extract that we propose is a food colouring made in Europe.
We process the pigment production in France.
