Tasty and excellent source of fibre!
The sweet ‘pop’ of corn in your mouth is both tasty and healthy! However, if you are on a diet, you do have to be a little careful as it contains a high level of energy-giving carbohydrates. Here’s a selection of some of the health benefits of eating corn regularly:
- No cholesterol or saturated fat and corn also has low levels of sodium.
- A good source of dietary fiber, thiamin and folate: so corn is a preferred carbohydrate for many nutritionists.
- Good for the eyes: corn contains phytochemicals (including lutein), which are linked to healthy eyes.
