Suntava Inc., developer of Suntava Purple Corn, has many reasons to crow these days. The company announces to industry that its now-certified-organic purple corn will be ready for purchase when this year’s October harvest is completed.
The whole grains that come from this purple wonder can be used in a wide variety of almost endless applications. This U.S.-grown, non-GMO, gluten-free product is perfect as an ingredient in a number of products, including chips, cereals, tortillas, baked goods and craft beer.
But that’s not all. Research by Massachusetts-based Brunswick Laboratories, a pioneer in antioxidant testing, showed that this product returns greater antioxidant activity than fruits—including leaders like blueberries, acai berries and pomegranate juice.
The folks at Brunswick found Suntava Purple Corn to have a super-high ORAC score. In fact, this product has an ORAC value more than twice that of blueberries.
