How Black Wheat Introduced?

What makes black wheat different in color is the pigment named “Anthocyanin” that also determines the colors of fruits and vegetables. The concentration of these pigments determines the color of other natural edibles. Regular wheat has a 5ppm (Parts-Per-Million) concentration of anthocyanin; on the other hand, black wheat grain is reported to have around 100-200ppm of anthocyanin (exact figures: 140 ppm). This makes black wheat, scientifically, a healthier option. These Anthocyanin are the naturally occurring antioxidants that develop in a field at the time of grain filling, hence enriching the wheat with loads of nutritional value.
