Purple corn is a crop from the low Andean valleys region, locally called "maiz morado". Purple corn is a common plant in Peru, growing in coastal areas, and also in areas with high altitude (up to 10,000 feet). It is a plant which is greatly revered in Mayan culture - a very ancient plant, said to be the plant of remembrance.
There is an ancient Hopi prophecy that says that when purple corn comes to the West, that is a sign that great changes are happening on the planet.
Note: this is NOT purple corn flour which is just the corn kernels dried and powdered, this is an extract, a 7:1 concentration, and has very different effect !
You need to use only a very little purple corn extract, just an eighth of a teaspoon is enough to begin with. Add to smoothies, puddings and milk to make beautiful purple drinks and desserts. You will not notice any effect from using plain purple corn powder - it has to be the extract.
For thousands of years, the people of the Andes have soaked Purple Corn to make a refreshing drink called chicha.
Purple corn extract is a natural plant food, one that you can use as a culinary ingredient in a variety of ways.
At Raw Living, we have been using Purple corn extract in this way for many years and we are passionate about bringing this new class of foods to you, and showing you how you can introduce them into your kitchen. When we consume these foods on a regular basis, we learn to be more aware of our body's needs, and more conscious that the very best way of keeping healthy is to watch what we eat. On this site and in Kate's books, we offer information on the most easy and accessible ways to take in these foods that can help keep us balanced and well.
Many of these foods are relatively new to us in the West, and to the majority of people they are still unheard of. In actual fact, they have been used in the countries they originate from for hundreds and often thousands of years, and are still in common use today. It is our wish to introduce to you a whole world of plants that feed the body in the truest sense. It is only in recent times that we consume food that does not have the minerals and nutritional content that nature intended. On our site, you can find many ways to add these foods into existing recipes, making your entire culinary experience so much more interesting.
