Love corn on the cob in the summer but wonder if it’s really that good for you?


Most likely the one vegetable that symbolizes summer more than any other except the tomato is sweet corn. And for good reason, as you already know it tastes great and to answer your question, yes it is good for you! It is more nutritious than most vegetables as it is loaded with vitamins C and A, B1, B2, B3 and B6. Corn also supplies you with a good dose of carbohydrates, fat, calcium, iron, potassium, and even protein. So keep the salt and butter to reasonable levels and grab another cob.
