VITAMINS & MINERALS
Corn is high in potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium, phosphorus, and selenium.3 It also provides folate, vitamins C and E, and vitamin A in the form of beta carotene.
Corn offers several health benefits beyond its vitamin and mineral content. Depending on the color, corn is rich in a variety of antioxidants and beneficial plant compounds that protect against disease.
REDUCES RISK OF TYPE 2 DIABETES
Polyphenols are beneficial plant compounds that are found in whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and nuts. Purple corn owes its color to a type of polyphenol, called anthocyanin, which has been shown to improve the regulation of insulin and glucose.4 Including a variety of colorful, plant-based foods in your meal plan like purple corn, is a proactive way to prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes.
MAY HELP PREVENT COLON CANCER
Corn is a good source of fiber that promotes the growth of "good bacteria" in the gut. These bacteria produce short-chain fatty acids to help prevent colon cancer.5 Eating fresh corn, popcorn, and checking food labels to ensure that you a buying a "whole grain" corn product will ensure that you get the most fiber out of your corn consumption.
SUPPORTS HEALTHY WEIGHT MANAGEMENT
The most filling types of snacks are those that are high in protein and fiber, like popcorn.6 Since snacks make up about a third of most people's daily intake, choosing snack foods wisely can have a big impact on body weight.
Popcorn is a whole grain snack that's minimally processed, especially when you make it fresh. Popcorn without added flavorings, sugar, or large amounts of butter can help with weight loss and healthy weight maintenance.
Corn contains lutein and zeaxanthin, the forms of vitamin A that are especially beneficial for eye health. Because these compounds become concentrated in the retina, they are associated with the prevention of age-related macular degeneration.7 The combination of lutein and zeaxanthin, along with vitamin C, vitamin E, copper, and zinc (which are also all found in corn), has been shown to protect against this common cause of vision loss.
PROMOTES HEART HEALTH
Corn provides several nutrients that offer proven cardiovascular benefits. The fiber in corn and other whole grains helps reduce cholesterol levels. Potassium is well-known to keep blood pressure levels down, and corn is a great source. Corn also has a decent amount of magnesium, which appears to reduce the risk of stroke and ischemic heart disease.8 Eating fresh corn, popcorn, or even canned corn (without added salt) can help protect your heart from long-term damage.
