THE NEW HUE IS NATURAL BLUE - BUTTERFLY PEA FLOWER EXTRACT -
You can use BLUE OCEAN straight out of the bottle which is naturally blue. One of the rarest and most coveted natural pigments is blue which occurs rarely in plants and animals. An edible natural blue food is quite rare in nature. Enter "BLUE OCEAN" (Clitoria ternatea or Blue Butterfly pea vine flower) screaming “I’m true vibrant blue because nature, in its unruly variety, has made me so and, bathed in my colour blue, I bring you wellness in body, mind and spirit.”
You can now also achieve a great color with just a few drops Butterfly Pea Pure Extract by mixing some Butterfly Pea powder in warm water:-
* A bright blue concentrated extract from the Butterfly Pea flowers * Plant based * Woody flavour * Adds a natural sweetness * Totally soluble * Mixes well with herbs & spices * No preservatives * Natural alkaline water
(If you are using Blue Ocean for your cocktails, Blue Ocean extract will not water down the cocktail but you will be amazed with its colour changing property. it's a great Party Trick!).
