Extraction of beta-carotene as natural dyes from Cucumis melo via soxhlet extraction method and its applications for coloring and decorating sweets

Author(s): Hassan Abdalla Almahy

Natural dyes are pronounced as an interesting alternative to fabricated dyes. Accordingly, the attractive demand to develop the extraction techniques of the best ingredients of solid and liquid for natural dyes colorants from fruits materials and their application in human life. Extraction is processed using solvents or using modern techniques like ultrasonication and microwave. In this respects, the extraction of natural colorant from Cucumis melo has been investigated as a model. Determination of the structure of active ingredients was performed conducted by UV spectroscopy and gravimetrical analysis. Through the analysis of the results, it will be confirmed that the dye extracted from Cucumis melo of intense color is beta-carotene, which is considered as one of the most colored dyes. Therefore, we recommend using such dyes in the industrial fields especially for coloring and decorating sweets.
