Chlorophyll is the green photosynthetic pigment present in chloroplasts which provides the energy necessary for photosynthesis. The intense green color of chlorophyll is due to its strong absorbencies in the red and blue regions of the electromagnetic spectrum, and because of these absorbencies the light it reflects and transmits appears green.

Chlorophylls (from green leafy vegetables, like Spinach) are not permitted as colourants in the States, but are in other countries. They provide the rich green colours in pastas and confections. Chlorophyll has a chemical structure that is quite similar to a chemical structure found within our red blood cells.
