purple foods

Purple foods are really really healthy and good for us. “That’s because many purple foods contain anthocyanins, which are red, blue and purple natural pigments. Anthocyanins are healthy because they’re powerful antioxidants and may help boost the immune system, maintain health and prevent disease, said J. Scott Smith, Kansas State University professor of food chemistry.”.
