SUMMARY— The evaluation of the various purification methods was based, in the order of their importance, on the recovery of individual and total anthocyanins and on the concentrating power. Amberlite CG-50 ion exchange resin was the best, but basic lead acetate was also satisfactory. Polyamide did not concentrate the anthocyanins and the use of neutral lead acetate resulted in poor recoveries.
