More info

Purple corn has a long history in Peru, being cultivated for thousands of years. It is renowned for being one of the richest sources of valuable anthocyanins. In Peruvian cuisine, purple corn is a key ingredient in famous desserts like mazamorra morada and chicha morada. The use of this superfood dates back to pre-Inca times and has even been depicted in ancient ceramic objects from the Mochica culture.

Ecoandino sources high-quality purple corn grains from organic associates in Pampas – Huancavelica at 2600 masl and Huanta – Ayacucho at 3200 masl, both in Peru. The unique weather conditions in these regions make them ideal for purple corn cultivation. The crops are harvested using organic production methods, ensuring the highest quality standards.

Purple corn powder is rich in specific anthocyanins, particularly cyanidin-3-b-glucose, which are complex flavonoids responsible for its blue, purple, or red colors. These anthocyanins possess anti-inflammatory properties and promote the regeneration of connective tissue. Additionally, they act as powerful antioxidants, helping to maintain a youthful appearance and protect against diseases. Furthermore, they contribute to improved blood flow and cholesterol reduction.

Ecoandino's organic raw purple corn powder can be used as an ingredient in various desserts, such as puddings, cupcakes, and crepes, among others. It can also be used as a partial substitute for other flours, such as wheat, in recipes.
