Good for diabetes:

Corn is an excellent choice for those who have diabetes. It has the right mix of minerals and vitamins that keep the insulin stay in a healthy range.



Vitamin rich:

Vitamin B12 and folic acid present in corn prevent anaemia caused by the deficiency of these vitamins.



Improves metabolism:

Corn helps in converting carbohydrate into energy, hence improves metabolism and prevents constipation.



Cholesterol check:

The high amount of fibre present in corn helps lower cholesterol levels and also reduces the risk of colon cancer. Yellow corn can also lower the risk of age-related vision loss.

Corn has been found to be helpful in treating kidney problems, including renal dysfunction.
