Whole Foods has predicted the hottest food trends for 2017 and purple-coloured vegetables made the list.

A panel of registered dieticians helped the store compile its top 10 list.

They found that “purple power” will be all the rage next year.

“Richly colored purple foods are popping up everywhere: purple cauliflower, black rice, purple asparagus, elderberries, acai, purple sweet potatoes, purple corn and cereal. The power of purple goes beyond the vibrant color and often indicates nutrient density and antioxidants,” the panel said on Whole Foods’ website.

Dieticians Tammy and Lyssie Lakatos told the Daily Mail that they are excited to see that purple foods made the list as vibrantly coloured fruits and veggies have more antioxidants and phytonutrients.

“Eating more purple food is really critical when it comes to fighting the age process, preventing diseases such as cancer, and also helping to fight inflammation.”
