Corn comes in many colors. But did you know that one color of corn has health benefits dating back to ancient times? Axium Foods, a maker of corn-based snacks and tortilla chips located in South Beloit, Ill., discovered that purple possesses powerful antioxidant properties and has launched Mystic Harvest Purple Corn Tortilla chips, made from all-natural ingredients, including antioxidant-rich purple corn. Such corn contains powerful anthocyanins, or flavonoid pigments found in red/purplish fruits and vegetables, made from purple cabbage, beets, blueberries, cherries, raspberries and purple grapes, that serve as antioxidants important for good health.
