China: High production of new black corn products prove very popular

"Black corn is a special kind of corn. Because of a black pigment, its seeds are jet-black. Its nutritional value is higher than that of other grain crops. The sugar degree of black corn is 11.95%, which is one to three times higher than that of regular corn. In the past few years, it has started to sell well on the market. Black corn can be grown in the majority of corn production regions in China," according to Mr. Gao Lei of Liaoning Jun He Agricultural Science and Technology Co., Ltd.


"Xin Jun He Anthocyanin Black Sweet 1"


The full seeds of "Xin Jun He Anthocyanin Black Sweet 1"

"Xin Jun He Anthocyanin Black Sweet 1 is a variety of sweet black corn with natural anthocyanins. In the past few years, it has been produced all over China. During the harvest, its seeds are a red-purple color. After they are boiled, their color becomes even better. In China, the majority of farmers are producing the general black corn breeds, and their production is only small. "Xin Jun He Anthocyanin Black Sweet 1", on the other hand, is a crossbreed. It has a large production, and a sweet taste. They usually take 85 to 90 days to ripen, and another 115 days to dry."

Bread made with "Xin Jun He Anthocyanin Black Sweet 1"

"Apart from eating this corn as it is, the seeds can also be dried, and then processed into black flour to make bread. From the moment we promoted the corn on the market, the supply of "Xin Jun He Anthocyanin Black Sweet 1" has not been able to meet the demand. As soon as the corn is harvested, it is already purchased by customers from Hong Kong and some other countries. Therefore, the prospects on the foreign markets are looking very optimistic."

"We are a specialized breeding company. We mainly research and develop new breeds of corn and vegetable seeds. We sell our products in the east, north and southwest of China, and in the Yellow River area. Apart from developing new corn breeds, such as "Xin Jun He Anthocyanin Black Sweet 1", we are also selling seeds for muskmelons, Datian corn, and for many vegetables, such as peppers, scallions, carrots and tomatoes. Currently, we are looking for seed traders on the foreign markets. We are hoping to collaborate with them, so that we can start to sell our seeds abroad."
