The betacyanin pigment of beetroot is normally sequestered in the vacuole of the beet root cells of course, if the beetroot is cut, cells are sliced open and the pigment spills out however, if the membrane is altered (phospholipid bilayer + proteins) more subtly, leakage (diffusion) of betacyanin is induced.
