The Key Ingredient
Did you know that 80% of antioxidant properties of anthocyanins (contained in purple corn) are retained in the bread crumbs and crust even after baking at 200°C?
This is what Professor Zhou Weibiao, a food scientist at the National University of Singapore, discovered after adding anthocyanins to white bread.
Other than the antioxidant benefits, Professor Zhou also found that anthocyanins slow the digestion rate by 20%, that means reducing the post prandial blood glucose spike, leading to a lower glycemic index.
