Organic Purple Corn Flour
About Our Organic Purple Corn Flour
Purple Corn has been used in Peru for thousands of years and there are not many purple foods in the world and its the purple colour that makes this corn flour a power house special.
This unique variety is grown in Peru in the inter-Andean valleys and the central coast and grows between 1,200 and over 4,000 meters above sea level (4,000 ft to 14,000 ft). The principal growing areas are in Lima, Ancash and Arequipa.
How to use Purple Corn
Native South Americans have been using the dyes, known as anthocyanins, to colour food and drinks for centuries.
Our organic raw purple corn flour is created by drying and then milling the purple corn kernels. It is good for use wherever you use wheat or other flours, and also great in raw chocolates and breads etc.
Purple corn flour can be used wherever you would use regular corn flour, corn meal, or as a substitute for other flour to give your favourite corn based dishes an extra antioxidant burst. It can be used in raw chocolates, breads, tortillas, pancakes and cakes. It will add an amazing colour to your traditional recipes while boosting the nutritional value.
