Abstract Purple corn ( Zea mays L.) is traditionally used in Peru in the preparation of desserts and juices. Purple corn cob and kernel extracts have intense color and are rich in anthocyanins and phenolic compounds. Purple corn cob, whole grain, ground grain, and pericarp extracts were obtained by supercritical fluid technology in a fixed bed at 50 °C and 400 bar in a sequential extraction process using supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO 2 ) as a solvent in the first step, ethanol in a second… CONTINUE READING
