    corn

    Corn is a decent source of
    vitamin B1, B5, C, E, folic acid,
    magnesium and phosphorus.
    It is considered to be low in
    protein, due to the minimal

    content of the amino acids lysine
    and tryptophan. On the
    contrary, it is a good source of
    complex carbohydrate, fiber,
    and healthful essential fatty
    acids.

    The various flavonoids and
    carotenes contained in corn, are
    responsible for the different
    colors of its different varieties
    The colors valued by Native Americans include, pink, black, red, and blue. There were
    also some that had stripes and spots. Yellow corn is high in the carotenoid, lutein.
    The lutein in yellow corn and yellow corn food products can protect against heart
    disease and macular degeneration. Macular degeneration is a condition of the eye
    which is typically seen in older age.

    Re: corn

    Corn is also high in fibre, which helps you fight digestive problems like constipation. Fibre also helps lower cholesterol levels, reduces the risk of colon cancer and is also useful in helping to lower blood sugar levels in diabetics. Folicacid present in corn is known to prevent neural-tube birth defects. Experts also recommend corn for people who suffer from Anaemia. Make a delicious and easy side dish — corn sauteed with green chillies and onions not only tastes good but is healthy, too!

    Corn is high in nutrients, which are extremely beneficial for you. Rich in Vitamin B1, which is used in the metabolism of carbohydrates, Vitamin B5, which helps with physiological functions, folate, that helps generating new cells and Vitamin C, which helps fight diseases, corn should be a must in your diet.
