Colored cereals attract public attention due to their potential antioxidant properties and corresponding health benefits. Purple wheat, rich in anthocyanins, is one of the newly developed cereals on the market. Cyanidin-3-O-glucoside (42.6%) is the predominant anthocyanin in purple wheat, followed by peonidin-3-O-glucoside (39.9%) and malvidin-3-O-galactoside (17.4%). To investigate the potential antiaging and antioxidant properties of purple wheat, the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans was… CONTINUE READING
