Yellow Corn Products

The peoples of Mexico first domesticated corn around 10,000 years ago. Over the next few thousands of years, trade between people groups spread corn across the Americas. During the 15th and 16th centuries, European explorers transported it back to their home countries. Because of its ability to grow in a variety of climates, corn then quickly spread around the globe.

For many millennia, corn ingredients have been a staple food for humans as well as livestock. It is easy to prepare and can be cooked and eaten whole. Since corn is such a versatile plant, it is used to make cornmeal, corn oil and even distilled alcoholic beverages.

In addition to being widely consumed around the world, corn is extremely healthy. Also, corn is a good source of fiber and protein. Furthermore, it contains several B vitamins, vitamin A, antioxidants and a variety of minerals like magnesium and phosphorus.

Known as ‘maize’ in many parts of the world, there are several types of corn: dent corn (field corn), flint corn (calico corn), pod corn, popcorn, flour corn and sweet corn.
