Canned Corn

Canned Corn
  • The absorption of lutein in corn, an antioxidant that may reduce the risks of cataracts and macular degeneration, is enhanced by heat from the canning process.
  • When looking at purchase price alone, fresh corn is less expensive than canned or frozen.
  • However, when the cost of waste (most notably the cob) is factored in, as well as time to prepare, canned corn offers the same amount of dietary fiber with a 25% savings compared to fresh and the same amount of folate with a 75% cost savings when compared to fresh.

 

Quick Tips for Using Canned Corn:

  • Create roasted corn in a skillet with 1 can of corn and a little bit of olive oil.
  • Add corn to mac 'n cheese for an added dose of lutein.
  • Corn adds color nutrition and flavor to salsas, salads and soups.
  • Open and serve, season to taste for a classic side dish for any meal.
