Purple/Blue color of foods

Hi, do you adapt to my concept of food colors? Blue/purple is a common color for us but more to fruits. The natural plant pigment found is named "anthocyanidins". It is not only act as powerful antioxidant, but also anti-inflammatory and antimutagenic effects that protect cells from damage. The main benefits are anthocyanidins reduces the risk of stroke and heart disease. Foods that relate are blueberries, grapes, raisins, plums, eggplant and prunes. An additional information, Cranberries contain proanthocyanadins, which prevents bacteria like E-coli from sticking to the walls of the urinary tract. You should mark as your favorite fruit but too bad it is only available in northern countries.
