Abstract

Storage stability of the blue-green pigment, which was converted from Gardenia jasminoides yellow pigment by Staphylococcus epidermides and Gardenia jasminoides yellow pigment, were investigated at various conditions of light, temperature, inorganic ion and pH, The factors that cause the discoloration were light and temperature $(above\;40^{\circ}C)$. The effects of light and temperature on storage stability of blue-green pigment were less than those of Gardenia jasminoides yellow pigment. Also, the effect of light was decreased by using green filter. There were no significant effects of pH and inorganic ion on both pigments.
