Recently, driven by the need of finding eco-friendlier and less hazardous pigments than synthetic colorants there is an increasing trend towards their replacement with biopigments. Various types of these biopolymers(such as astaxanthin, canthaxanthin, zeaxanthin, ankaflavin, torularhodin and so on) are produced through the development of proper and efficient bioprocesses. In this review current biocolorants production processes are highlighted. Also, emphasis is given in exploring potential strategies for optimizing biopigments production processes as well as decreasing their total production costs. Therefore, investigation of potential value added biopigment production using various types of agroindustrial by-product streams as well as presentation of efficient extraction, recovery and identification processes and technologies(employing emerging technologies such as supercritical carbon dioxide (SC-CO2)) are carried out. Finally, potential applications of microbial pigments in industrial food and health sector are presented. Biopigments could lead to the production of nutrient supplements and functional food, with improved marketability, displaying various potential health benefits. Use of microbial pigments in food processing and pharmaceutical sector, is an area of promise with large economic potential for several industrial applications.
