A class of water soluble nitrogen containing plant pigments of the order Caryophyllales which consists of the yellow betaxanthins and the violet betacyanins (Gandia-Herrero, Escribano, & Garcia-Carmona, 2005; Yusuf, Shabbir, & Mohammad, 2017).
Betacyanin is a type of betalains, hydrophilic pigments responsible for the coloration of fruits, flowers, roots and leaves of plants belonging to the order Caryophyllales (CASTELLANOS-SANTIAGO &YAHIA, 2008).
