Purple Corn Powder (100g)


Purple corn (maize morado in Spanish) belongs to the same species as yellow table corn but mutated to contain some of the deepest shades of purple found in nature known as "anthocyanins" which native South Americans have been using to color their food and drinks for centuries.

Some research has shown that purple corn contains cell-protecting antioxidants with the ability to inhibit carcinogen-induced tumors in rats. Even though many plant-derived substances are believed to show such properties, few have also demonstrated anti-inflammatory capabilities and the potential to help prevent obesity and diabetes.

Purple Corn powder can be incorporated into flour mixes to make colorful pancakes, delicious tortillas, pizza crust, gluten-free pasta, or added to protein powders, smoothies, and is a great addition to eating the rainbow!
