Is corn the grain the same as corn the vegetable?
Wondering that if I have issues with eating things such as breads made using corn flour or corn puff snacks will I also with corn as a vegetable? Are they the same thing and is maize just another name for the (corn) grain or different somehow?
Corn as a fresh food (an ear of sweet corn) or sprouted has a different nutrient structure than when it is dried and turned into a flour, corn starch or corn syrup. It's the processing of it that makes those end products different.
I have inflammatory joint issues with eating any dried corn, but do not have those problems with fresh or sweet corn.
Maize/corn is one plant with a lot of uses, but sadly it's processed into fractions of itself a lot of the time or genetically engineered, which winds up making it rather unhealthy.
There is an amazing documentary titled "Food INC" it is very informative about the corn industry. watch it, OK. If you don't have the time, read the wikipedia page. Sweet corn is different from the main product which is "dent corn" the kernels have a characteristic "dent" and it is the variety used for almost everything from corn sweetener to the feed that they feed all of our meat animals.
