Corn has been a staple ingredient and beloved summer favorite for years. Traditional corn is grown throughout these warm summer months, while sweet corn is harvested when the kernels are soft, making it sweet. Corn can be used to make tortillas, tacos, flour, soups, and even sauces.
Corn is rich in vitamins A, B, E, and other minerals, and is also high in fiber and can prevent many digestive ailments. Corn controls blood-sugar levels as it is high in starch, and is also a great gluten-free option for those who are gluten intolerant or suffer from celiac disease. Finally, corn is a good source of phenolic flavonoid antioxidants and relic acid, which plays a helpful role in preventing cancer and other ailments.
