Benefits of Maizes
Anyone who has eaten fresh corn on the cob or freshly popped popcorn knows how satisfying this food can be to chew. Some of that satisfaction comes from corns fiber content. At 4.6 grams of fiber per cup, corn is a good fiber source, and in research studies, corn intake is often associated with good overall fiber intake. For example, persons who eat popcorn tend to have 2 3 times more overall whole grain intake than persons who do not eat popcorn, and they also tend to have higher overall fiber intake as well.
