Originally from America, corn is one of many popular ingredients in modern recipes. There are many varieties, including those which are white, yellow and bicolour.
When corn is in the ground or when it has been freshly grown and is still tender, it is known as a corn "kernel" because its grains still retain water.
This plant, in addition to carbohydrates, is rich in fibre that aids digestion and helps lower cholesterol. It is rich in essential oils, as well as vitamin B and E. Some of the minerals contained in corn are selenium, potassium and phosphorus.
Corn and yellow corn have a slightly sweet and pleasant taste, which differs from the white variety as it is rich in antioxidants. Finally, it should be mentioned that corn does not contain gluten, so it can be consumed by people with a dietary intolerance to this protein.
