Grain & Seed Guide

Corn

Also known as maize, this cereal grain has been a prominent means of food in civilizations for thousands of years. This diverse grain plant has been used to make corn on the cob, popcorn, cornmeal, corn muffins, corn bread and more. Most of corn’s nutritional properties are derived from the kernel such as vitamins A, B, C, E, and other minerals. It also contains fiber, magnesium, phosphorous, and thiamin. Rich in phytochemicals, the nutritional benefits of corn include preventing heart diseases, improving bone strength, controlling diabetes, reducing cholesterol absorption, and maintaining good vision and skin. Food For Life uses organic sprouted grain corn to create many nutritional products such as sprouted corn tortillas, sprouted grain breads, and sprouted grain muffins.
