Some of the many benefits of  non-GMO organic Sweet Corn

  • Sweet corn is a natural a gluten-free cereal ingredient and may be used safely in celiac disease individuals, much like rice, quinoa, etc.

It is one of the most excellent sources of dietary fibers, 100 g kernels carry 2 g or 5% of the daily requirement of dietary fiber. Together with slow-digesting complex carbohydrates, dietary fiber in the food helps regulate a gradual increase in blood sugar levels. However, corn, in line with rice, potato, etc., is one of high glycemic index food items, limiting its authority as the chief food ingredient in diabetes patients.
  • Yellow varieties of corn have high levels of phenolic flavonoid pigment antioxidants such as b-carotenes, and lutein, xanthins, and cryptoxanthin pigments along with vitamin A.; these compounds are required for maintaining healthy mucus, skin, and vision. Consumption of natural foods rich in flavonoids helps to protect from lung and oral cavity cancers.
  • Corn is a source of a phenolic flavonoid antioxidant, ferulic acid. Several research studies suggest that ferulic acid plays a vital role in preventing cancers, aging, and inflammation in humans.
  • It also has proper levels of some of the valuable B-complex groups of vitamins such as thiamin, niacin, pantothenic acid, folates, riboflavin, and pyridoxine. Many of these vitamins function as co-factors to enzymes during substrate metabolism.

    Awesome! I put them on a very low simmer. We ended up eating much later than planned, so they simmered the whole time. (I just kept stirring.) I was worried they would be mushy, but to my surprise they were just as tender and firm as if my clock was at 15 mins. VERY flavorful – everyone loved them! I put paprika in the water and served the Cajun spice on the table. Too may sissy tastebuds out there. Thanks.

    I recently just started to freezing my buttermilk in ice trays. Once they are frozen solid I pop them out the ice tray and stick them in zip lock bags.
    I pull them out as needed for my recipes.
