3 reasons to put sweet corn on the menu!
• It’s filling
Corn is rich in hunger-busting fibre, with one cob providing a fifth of your daily needs. Corn’s special fibre (‘resistant starch’) promotes gut health and also protects against bowel cancer.
• It’s great fuel
This starchy veg has a medium glycaemic index rating, which means it’s a great addition to your salad at lunch to keep energy levels up, or at dinner to refuel after your day’s work.
• It helps safeguard healthy eyes
Corn kernels get their signature yellow colour from lutein, an antioxidant pigment which can help protect your eyes from UV damage. This may reduce your risk of developing macular degeneration and blindness.
