The anthocyanins are distributed in almost plant species. On the other hand, the betalain pigments are limited in nine families of the Order Caryophyllales, i.e., Aizoaceae, Amaranthaceae, Basellaceae, Cactaceae, Chenopodiaceae, Didiereaceae, Nyctaginaceae, Phytolaccaceae and Portulacaceae except Caryophyllaceae and Molluginaceae. However, other flavonoid classes, e.g., flavonols, flavones, isoflavonoids, flavanones, dihydroflavonols, flavane and proanthocyanidins, chalcones and aurones occur in betalain-containing families. In this paper, the distribution and properties of the flavonoids in nine betalain-containing families are reviewed.
