Purple Corn Flour

Purple corn flour is made by drying and milling purple corn kernels. ‘Maiz morado’ has been cultivated for over 2500 years in South America; it thrives in the low valleys of the Andes. Kernels are used to make a popular Peruvian drink called ‘ChiCha Morada’ – purple corn with pineapple, cinnamon, clove, and sugar. Originally a refreshing accompaniment to food, the purple beverage was recently found to have immense nutritional benefits.
