Corn

Corn, or maize, is a starchy vegetable that is a cob of kernels covered by a husk. Though this popular vegetable has a lot of natural sugar, it also has many health benefits and is quite versatile.

 

The fiber in corn helps you stay full for longer between meals, and feeds healthy bacteria in your digestive tract (which may help protect against colon cancer). Corn is also rich in the important antioxidant vitamin C (helpful for your immune system, your skin, and your blood vessels), and is a good source of the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin, which are good for eye health.

 

There are so many ways to eat corn - from summertime cornboils, to corn salads, to popcorn, to tortillas or chips. Check out some more corn inspiration below!

Corn - for more than just a boil
