Purple maize! How cool! but natural is yellow one no?
At the first moment I thought it was sangria or something like that... how interesting! It must have an amazing taste!

Fascinating. It sounds delish!! And normally, I associate the dark purple color with grapes. Very interesting.

the purple maize is just as natural as yellow maize just not so prevelant.

Man has traded nutrition and pigment for sugar and yield for 10,000 years.

Corn was hybridized to yellow to increase sugar content. The corn you hang on the door is lot closer to what nature offers us. Less tasty but more nutritious.

Pick a crop and you will find its ancient dark pigmented origins.
