Butterfly Pea Flower Extract
Butterfly pea (Clitoria ternatea L.) is a climbing legume (Leguminosae) that has small flowers which are beautiful and funnel-shaped. It originated from tropical Asia, but now was widely distributed in Central and South America, India and China. The blue color flower is popular in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Philippines as an edible food dye and also brewed into tea.
The buterfly pea flower is unique as the extracted dye has the ability to change colors depending on the pH of any ingredient that is added to it. At its first brew, the beverage has a deep, midnight blue color but a squeeze of lemon or any acidic liquid, can change its color to violet and further to pink.
