4 Nutritious Recipes with Corn

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.

These recipes sound tasty and simple, which I like! Corn is a great ingredient with many varieties and uses as explained in this article, so it is always nice to experiment and try something a little different like the corn pancakes or the corn cream. There isn't too much of a culture of using corn in Spain and Southern Europe, but it is nice to try something different!

I grew up in Nebraska, the Corn Husker state, and yes, we did grow a lot of corn in that state (for good reason...it's always sunny there!!!) I have had all of these recipes except for the corn pancakes - what a creative way to eat pancakes!!! We're making crepes tomorrow morning for breakfast... I wonder if we could endeavor corn crepes...

corn has this bad thinking from the people who follow a diet based on organic, but yet it is a very impotant source of carbs, and this should consider with great virtue

Everything is made of corn in these days, and maybe you haven't realized, but in almost all products, corn is the main ingredient of the preparation, of course that is is already refined and loses all the good properties that corn could have, but I'm just telling this as a tip for those who didn't know this information!

Yeah, that is so true, almost all products are made with corn flour which actually is not good at all, as it has lost all the properties of the corn and become an useless grain, so you have to avoid that kind or flour, and or course the corn that comes in cans, it is very bad too

I will comment abou the last recipe that no one had commented about, the sauce of corn sounds like something I won't eat just because, but maybe to try something different, I would do that, maybe this could be a good idea to combine with certain types of ingredients, and this could be something exotic

I love to prepare sauteed corn and let me tell you that is one of the best and simple things you can ever taste, and well I prepare it just like the recipe, but sometimes I let my imagination travel and I try something different like with something spicy or even with tomato, any vegetalbe can go ok with this I think!

Corn pancakes sound good but not very healthy, as well as the normal pancakes, I think people should rely more on other types of grains especially the whole form as this will help to improve the biological value of any food, even pancakes, and even if you add a lot of sugar, but the perfect should be combining just with a like brown sugar or things like that

There is a huge sulture of using corn since the human began I think, and this is a marvelous product as there is a great quantity of types and taste and of course, preparations and dishes, as this ingredient can be included in soups, stews, and even salad with some vatiery of sweet corn.
