Purple Corn Flakes (Zea mays L)

Purple corn is native to the Andes. It has been widely cultivated and consumed throughout the Andean region of South America, mainly in Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Argentina for hundreds of years. It expresses one of the deepest purple shades found in the plant kingdom.

Nutritionally and compositionally, purple corn is similar to the more commonly consumed yellow corn; it is rich in starch, proteins, lipids, minerals, and vitamins; however, it is the presence of anthocyanins and other phenolic compounds that differentiate purple corn from other conventional corn varieties and make it stand out as a health-promoting food.

Industrial usage: Snacks, yogurts, granolas, breakfast, muffins, bakery, etc
