Some Facts about Corn


Corn is a grain rich in fibre, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Corn comes in many colours- red, orange, purple, blue, white and even black. The kernels are consumed as they contain most of the nutrients.


Some health benefits of corn are:

1.   Prevents Anaemia- corn increases the production of red blood cells as they contain Vitamin B12, folic acid and iron.

2.   Enhanced energy- it contains complex carbohydrates which are digested slowly providing energy for a longer time.

3.   Increases weight- for underweight people, corn is the healthy and effective way to increase weight without any side effect as in fast food.

4.   Cholesterol and sugar- it lowers cholesterol absorption, increases blood flow and regulates insulin which makes it suitable for people with diabetes even when it has sugar content.

5.   Pregnancy- folic acids prevents any birth defects and muscular degeneration, and fibre content helps in constipation.

6.   Healthy skin- VItamin C content increases the content of collagen to prevent UV radiation to damage skin.

The corn intake should be limited to one corn ear per day. Too much corn quantity can lead to gastrointestinal symptoms and can cause gas, abdominal pain and cramps.
