Extraction of Natural Pigments Safe for Humans and Environmentally Friendly from Some Filamentous Fungi

  • Published on November 30, 2019
Textile dyes and effluents are considered as one of the worst polluters of our priceless water sources and soils. New sources of natural pigments are getting particular research interests due to the toxicity produced by synthetic coloring agents. . Apart from the enormous microbes applications, Filamentous Fungi may provide a readily available alternative source of natural pigments. In this study some filamentous fungi were isolated from different soil sources to produce natural pigments.
-Producing sustainable natural pigments that are safe for human consumption (food coloring, beverages and textile dyeing). - Prevention of contemporary diseases such as cancer, where industrial dyes have a role in the infection of this disease caused by human consumption of food dyes industrial. - Reduce the toxic effects of industrial dye pollutants in the environment. -Producing environmentally friendly colours. The production of natural pigments safe for human consumption used in food coloring and textiles. - Maintain human health from incurable diseases such as cancer and liver disease. -Reducing the toxic reactions and sensitivity associated with industrial dyes and their residues, which have resulted in bad environmental reprisals, such as contaminating watercourses with the fluids and residues of dyes factories, resulting in the elimination of some biodiversity in environmental systems. -Conservation of biodiversity.
