making headlines
"Suntava’s founders, entomologists, began investigating and breeding the corn for its resistance to insects. Then they realized that it was also remarkably high in antioxidants called anthocyanins, thought to have anti-inflammatory properties and play a role in preventing cancer and obesity. More, the corn could be a source of natural colorants to replace synthetic food, drug, and cosmetic dyes."
