Copper Chlorophyllin is a semi synthetic mixture of
water soluble sodium copper salts derived from cholorophyll. They are tight
molecular complexes that have been useful in fighting various acrcinogenic
diseases and therefore are greatly preferred substances.
Vegetables containing high amounts of cholorophyllin include:
- Bell peppers
- Brussels sprouts
- Green cabbage
It is subjected to a process where the magnesium present in its
centre is removed (by placing it in an acid bath) and replaces with copper.
Although the content of different copper chlorophyllin may vary, two
compounds commonly found in commercial mixtures are trisodium copper
chlorine E6 and disodium copper chlorine E4.
