Black Food originates from traditional Chinese medicine, in which the color of food is assigned a special meaning. With their color, although unusual, the foods are particularly rich in minerals, trace elements and anthocyanins, a secondary plant substance that not only gives the color, but also acts as a valuable antioxidant.
