List of Ingredients

Corn, Whole, Purple

 

Purple corn is found mostly in Peru and has been cultivated for thousands of years.  It is cultivated there from the coast to in lands almost ten thousand feet high.  It has been extensively used as a staple food and a natural coloring dye.

There are different genetic strains of purple corn, all of which originated from the line called “Kculli”, which is still cultivated in Peru.  Objects in the shape of these particular ears of corn have been found in archeological sites at least 2,500 years old.  

Maiz morado, a purple corn native to Peru, is the caviar of the crop, very sought after for its delicate lemon-blossomy flavor.

Purple corn (maiz morado) is a major Andean crop.  And people of the Andes make a refreshing drink from purple corn called "chicha morada".  It is also one of nature’s richest sources of at least six different anthocyanin antioxidants.
