Purple corn is a high-fiber food that has been grown in Peru for thousands of years. Its kernels have long been used by Andean people to color foods and beverages and improve circulation. It has a ton of vitamins (B5, B9) & minerals (zinc, copper, manganese, magnesium &potassium).
The most important value of the kernels is that they are very rich in antioxidants. According to a study by Monica Giusti, an assistant professor of food science at Ohio State University USA, purple corn has been proved to be the winner in anthocyanin content among most plant based foods and with most benefits to human cells.
1. Powerful Antioxidant
The most abundant anthocyanin found in purple corn is called C3G. Purple corn has 2.94 times higher anthocyanin content than wild blueberry, also 5.13times > Acai berry; 8.21 times > blood orange; 10.39 times > purple sweet potato.
Its rich antioxidants kill free radicals that cause cell damage and helps anti-aging. C3G has tested to be at least 40 times more effective than vitamin E for the prevention of damage caused by UV light. Vitamin E is a weaker inhibitor of UVB-induced lipid oxidation because it rapidly breaks down under UV light, C3G does not break down, so it is more effective.
3. Potential Anti-Obesity
Not only is purple corn is a high-fiber food, but its C3G also helps control obesity. Researchers in Japan compared the bodyweights of male mice fed a high-fat diet with another group fed the same high-fat diet but with the addition of purple corn (which provided C3G at 0.2%). After 12 weeks, fatty tissue in the high-fat diet group was found to be growing in size but showed no increase in the group that included purple corn in their diet.
4. May Improve Eye Health
The Lutein and zeaxanthin found in purple corn are two very important antioxidants that are used almost exclusively by your eyes. This may contribute to the health of the eye.
5. May help with heart health
The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of purple corn are suitable for people concerned about high blood lipids/cholesterol.
6. Improve circulation
Antioxidants improve blood circulation.
7. Blood Sugar Concern
8. Liver Health
Excess of oxygen-based free radicals causes liver oxidative injuries. The C3G that purple corn provides shows significant hepatoprotective effects.
