Background and Usage: Called maize in many languages, corn was first cultivated in the area of Mexico more than 7,000 years ago, and spread throughout North and South America. Native Americans probably bred the first corn from wild grasses, and crossed high-yielding plants to make hybrids. Can be used in Soups, can be grilled or roasted and eaten as-is, Curries, roasts, and used in combination with pretty much any vegetable in entrees.
Nutrition Information: Sweet corn is loaded with lutein and zeaxanthin, two phytochemicals that promote healthy vision. Besides many health benefits, it aids in digestion. Sweet corn is sweet for a vegetable. However, there are only 6 grams of natural sugar in a medium-size ear of corn. An ear of sweet corn has less than half the sugar of a banana and only about one-third the sugar of an apple.
