In Peru, its consumption is very popular when the corn is boiled and the juice used as a drink known as ´chicha morada´ and as a dessert known as ´mazamorra morada´. Purple Corn Powder is obtained by dehydrating and grinding the whole cob. This corn contains a high content of anthocyanin, a natural antioxidant that prevents cell degradation, inhibits bad cholesterol and improves the blood circulation of the consumer. Anthocyanin can also stimulate connective tissue regeneration and promote the formation of collagen. Purple corn is excellent for fighting arthritis, diabetes and obesity.
