I wanted to try this purple wheat & walnut bread recipe from the San Francisco Baking Institute at http://www.sfbi.com/june.html. It's the first I have heard of purple wheat and the description of it on the recipe says 'Researchers in Saskatchewan are breeding and selecting this wheat for its high levels of anthocyanin, which are phytochemicals responsible for the flour’s purple color and antioxidant behavior in our bodies (i.e. blueberries)'. After a bit of searching I found a source in Canada, http://www.infrareadyproducts.com/pro..., but they didn't respond to my email (seems to be the case more often than not - don't companies want business?). They also say it is known as AnthoGrain™ Wheat and is an antioxidant that aids in eye cell repair. I want it more for it's colour and it's general nutritional qualities.

Has anyone seen this for sale in the GTA or online in either wheatberry form or flour?
