Corn

Health Benefit to You

The kernels are rich in carbohydrates, oils, vitamins, minerals and some proteins. The kernel contains an oil-rich embryo, called the germ, and an endosperm containing starches and proteins. Corn is rich in potassium, and yellow corn contains beta-carotene (precursor of Vitamin A). No cereal grain provides all eight amino acids, and corn is no exception. Corn has less total protein than wheat or rice and has very little of the amino acids lysine and tryptophan. Corn has more thiamine (Vitamin B1), however, which helps humans break down and use carbohydrates. Source: Field Museums.org
