Corn is one of the world’s most popular cereal grains. It’s the seed of a plant in the grass family, native to Central America but grown in countless varieties worldwide.
Corn is mainly composed of carbs and fairly high in fiber. It also packs a decent amount of low-quality protein.
Corn contains a number of bioactive plant compounds, some of which may boost your health. Corn provides higher amounts of antioxidants than many other cereal grains. It’s especially rich in eye-healthy carotenoids.
