Title: A PROCESS FOR THE EXTRACTION OF PHYCOCYANIN
Abstract:
The present disclosure relates to the field of extraction of phycocyanin from an algal biomass. The process of the present disclosure relates to a simple yet efficient and rapid method to extract phycocyanin from the algal biomass which is easy to scale up. In the process of the present disclosure, an aqueous slurry is prepared of the algal biomass by adding a predetermined amount of a fluid medium by weight. The aqueous slurry is frozen/chilled and then optionally thawed to obtain a thawed biomass. The liquid from the thawed/chilled biomass can be separated to obtain a supernatant containing phycocyanin and a residue.
