Details

Purple corn extract powder boasts a delicious flavour that’s comparable to standard corn and a lovely deep purple colour. It contains a selection of nutrients such as anthocyanin and is absolutely ideal in smoothies, shakes, protein drinks, juices and desserts.

This product is created by juicing the purple corn then slowly, at low temperatures, evaporating off the liquid in the juice until this pure powder remains.

Mix purple corn extract powder into your choice of smoothies, shakes, protein drinks and juices or add to desserts, fruit salads, raw chocolate and other sweet treats.

Origins

Purple corn is one of the few purple plants, fruits and seeds on our planet. It thrives in the low valleys of the Peruvian Andes and is a favourite among many South American countries such as Columbia, Ecuador, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina. The purple corn is first made into a juice, which is then allowed to dry at a low temperature to produce the highly distinctive purple powder.

Quantity and Dosage

Mix 1-3 teaspoons (approx. 3-9 g) daily into your preferred drink, snack or meal. Store in a sealed container in a cool, dry place. Once open, keep refrigerated and consume within 2 months.

Facts

  • Purple corn is an integral ingredient in several South American dishes and drinks including chips, tacos, ‘chicha morada’ (a refreshing drink prepared ​​from purple corn, pineapple, cinnamon, cloves and sugar) and 'mazamorra morada' (a delicious pudding)
  • More and more Western food manufacturers are choosing purple corn extract as an entirely natural food colorant
  • Anthocyanins give plants, fruit and vegetables (such as aubergines, tomatoes, cherries and berries) their blue, purple or red hue
  • Purple corn, a variety of Zea mays, is an Andean crop from low valleys locally called maiz morado. Purple corn can be found mostly in Peru, where it is cultivated in the coast, as well as in lands almost ten thousand feet high.
  • There are different varieties of purple corn, and all of them originated from an ancestral line called “Kculli”, still cultivated in Peru. The Kculli line is very old, and ancient objects in the shape of these particular ears of corn have been found in archeological sites at least 2,500 years old in places in the central coast, as well as among the ceramics of the “Mochica” culture.
