Why We Love It: It’s interesting – seriously, who would have thought of purple corn flakes? Although there isn’t a lot of scientific evidence to prove it, purple corn is an ancient grain known for its high levels of anthocyanins, antioxidants that are known to be anti-inflammatory, promote blood flow and reduce cholesterol. The flavor of this cereal is simple, it’s just got the slightest hint of sweetness and that’s about it. So it’s great for people who want to keep it simple at breakfast time and don’t want a lot of sweet. Or for people who want to top it with fruit, nuts or other ingredients to spice it up. It’s also crispier than traditional corn flakes, which we liked.
