THE LATEST PRODUCT from Matakana Super Foods is Purple Corn Flour, a purple corn which has been cultivated in Peru for thousands of years, where it has been used as a staple food and as a natural colorant for foods and beverages.
Research has linked purple corn flour with a variety of health benefits, while it’s also a source of protein, vitamins and minerals. Oh, and it’s low on the glycemic index.
Due to its intense purple colour, Purple Corn Flour is also one of nature’s richest sources of anthocyanin antioxidants, which means it has significantly more antioxidants than blueberries.
Purple Corn Flour can be used as a substitute for wheat flour or gluten free flours, and has a mild, slightly nutty flavour.
A 250g pouch goes for $9.95, while the 1kg pouch retails for $29.95.
Matakana Super Foods has also released its new SuperShake, which is designed to provide a broad nutritional boost across a wide range of super nutrients. The 56g pouch, which sells for $11.95, contains 4 serves or 2 meal replacements, or a tablespoon can be added to a smoothie for a nutrient boost.
Ingredients include Sacha Inchi protein, Chia seeds, Coconut Fibre, Lucuma, Maqui Berry, Red Raspberry, Blueberry, Camu Camu, Yumberry, Goji Berry and Gac fruit.
