Color got erased!

I used 3% of bright dragon fruit powder in the dough with starter and after the bake, the color completely disappeared! So much for anticipating a pink loaf... live and learn.

I'm not familiar with dragon fruit coloring baked goods but I know when beets are used, the dough needs an acid dough or the bright red/purple turns tan.

My levain is quite sour but I don’t know what pH level is...
