Corn is one of the most popular cereal grains in the world. Popcorn and sweet corn are commonly eaten varieties, but refined corn products are also widely consumed, frequently as ingredients in foods.


Aside from containing varying amounts of water, corn is mainly composed of carbohydrates, and has small amounts of protein and fat.

  • Good source of protein

A 1-cup serving of corn provides 5 grams of protein, which is about 10 percent of the recommended daily allowance.

  • Folate of metabolism

Your body depends on folate to metabolize DNA and protein. This B vitamin is especially important for women who may become pregnant, because it prevents birth defects that occur in the first few weeks after conception. It also helps convert an amino acid.

  • Fiber for your heart

Fiber used to be known as roughage, which reflects the ability of insoluble fiber to prevent constipation. Corn also binds with cholesterol and carries it out of your system, which helps lower levels in your blood and reduces your risk of cardiovascular disease.

  • Weight management


Corn possesses several characteristics that support weight management. About 73 percent of corn consists of water. This helps manage weight because water adds bulk without contributing any calories. As a result, you can eat a reasonable portion, get full and still stay within daily calorie goals.
