The background vs background-color attribute


Guil uses the background: color white; attribute & value.

What is the difference to background-color: white; ?

I know I can add other background sub properties to it, but what is the reason for bg color then?

Thanks alot.

The MDN page for Shorthand properties covers things to consider when using shorthand properties with background as an example.
