Suntava has come forward with yet another vital contribution to the importance of good nutrition and health: a high-maltose purple corn nectar. And at the foundation of this new ingredient is an ancient superfood that helps answer the nutritional needs of today.
With the new year just underway, Suntava is introducing a new everything ingredient, one that has it all. This colorful nectar is super high in antioxidants, all-natural, non-GMO and gluten free. It’s perfect for energy/breakfast bars, cereals, granolas, jellies, jams, beverages, etc.
And one can only guess at the color possibilities.
“The rich purple color of the syrup comes from the high levels of anthocyanins, polyphenols, and antioxidants in the corn,” said Bill Petrich, Suntava CEO. Derived from ancient strains of Andean maize, Suntava Purple Corn has brought an updated version of this old world grain into today. And among its most rewarding characteristics is that it contains twice the antioxidant power of blueberries, trumping other supergrains in its category.
Petrich says that these better-for-you ingredients are a sign of the changing marketplace, and good news for consumers. “For too long, nutrition has been bred out of our food, and artificial additives ruled. Suntava is proud to be part of the movement to cultivate foods that are naturally fortified, from seed to table.”
As companies large and small begin ramping up their R&D projects, they’re hearing about Suntava’s proprietary purple corn—making possible some of the most significant offerings in the food and beverage world in many years.
