2min read

Whether you’re adding mini corn to vibrant stir-fries, adding tinned stuff to a salad or steaming an entire corn-on-the-cob for dinner, we’re a nation who can’t get enough of sweetcorn. But is it healthy?

Sweetcorn

Maize is one of the most cultivated crops globally, so it’s no surprise that part of the family, sweetcorn, is such a popular vegetable choice for home cooks. Is sweetcorn’s demand reflected in its nutritional value?

Is sweetcorn good for you?

Sweetcorn has excellent fibre content as well as important B vitamins and minerals such as copper, iron, magnesium, manganese and zinc as well as plenty of important antioxidants. All of this together can promote a healthy lifestyle as part of a well-balanced diet.  

Why is sweetcorn good for you?

Fibre is key in maintaining good digestive health and its essential minerals and B vitamins are important in helping your body keep on top of overall health. Lastly, its antioxidants are useful at keeping your eyes in working order – move over carrots, we’ve got a new vegetable for super-sight.
