Abstract: The present study aimed to extract anthocyanines from red cabbage for coloring the ice-cream instead of the synthetic colors to avoid the harmful effect on the health. Also, the study aimed to study its stability under the effect of some factors (pH-values – temperatures – both of them). Anthocyanine pigments were stable at low pH-values. The degradation percentage was increased by increasing in the pH-values. Red cabbage anthocyanin was stable at 50 and 70°C, but it being degradation with high ratio after 75°C. Acidified extract was more stable than citric acid (2%) extract. The results showed that the use of acidified extract was the best coloring agent to color ice-cream.
