Mystic Harvest begins its journey with tortilla chips made from purple corn, a grain that traces its ancestry back to the Andes Mountains in ancient Peru. Once believed to have mystical healing powers, today we know the true powers behind purple corn are anthocyanins: flavonoids that provide the corn with its stunning, deep-purple hue. Anthocyanins are more than just beautiful colors though; they’re powerful antioxidants and purple corn is rich with them.
Leveraging more than 50 years of experience, we are proud to revolutionize the snack food industry with tortilla chips made from this amazing ancient grain. All natural, trans-fat free and made with no hydrogenated oils or GMO ingredients, Mystic Harvest Purple Corn Tortilla Chips are truly a snack food that you can feel good about eating.
The Origins of Mystic Harvest
In November 2010, Axium Foods president Jerry Stokely underwent bypass surgery to repair severely clogged arteries. He viewed this experience as a wake-up call, and not only began thinking differently about his health but the health of all Americans. He began looking at his role as president of Axium as an opportunity for the company to make better-for-you snacks. It was during this time that he learned about purple corn, a powerful “super food” with concentrated levels of one of nature’s most potent antioxidants. He validated the health claims of purple corn in an independent laboratory then set about creating a tortilla chip that would bring purple corn’s rediscovered benefits to consumers in America. The Mystic Harvest brand was born. Awaken the Power™.
