Purple Corn For Good Health

Purple Corn with kernels that are all purple.

The Purple Corn was one of the varieties showcased at the demo farm during the 30th anniversary celebration of East-West Seed Company in San Rafael, Bulacan.

The Purple Corn is claimed to be rich in anthocyanin which may help stabilize and protect capillaries and blood vessels from damage by free radicals. 

Anthocyanin has been shown to promote collagen formation (which is good for our skin) and may improve blood circulation.

Aside from the variety with purely purple kernels, there is also what is popularly called Bicolor.The kernels are a combination of purple and yellow, or purple and white.

As boiled corn, the Purple and Bicolor are nice to eat because they are waxy.
