A rare and ancient Peruvian corn, also known as Kculli, bears deep purple ears with large kernals. It is grown for culinary reasons, but has also recently been studied for its health benefits since it apparently has unusually high levels of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. People of the Andes make a refreshing drink sweetened with fruit, sugar or honey from the purple corn called “chicha morada” which is now recognized as a nutritive powerhouse due to its phenolic and anthocyanins content.
