Corn Delivers Some Major Health Benefits!

Celebrate Cinco De Mayo this month by enjoying festive, delicious ingredients that also deliver major health benefits, like corn. Corn is a member of the whole grain family, a food group that fewer than 10% of Americans get enough of that’s tied to a lower risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and obesity. Corn is also surprisingly nutrient-rich. In addition to its B vitamins, fiber, and minerals, corn has been shown to pack as much antioxidant power as produce! Plus the pigments that give corn its bright yellow hue are linked to lung and eye protection. To take advantage of the benefits, dig into some corn on the cob, corn salsa, and even popped corn.
