Corn is a good source of vitamin C though processed forms such as popcorn or cornmeal contain less of this nutrient. Corn is also rich in B vitamins such as Thiamin and Niacin. Pantothenic acid is a vitamin that is vital for carbohydrate as well as protein and lipid metabolism in the body and corn contains it in significant amounts. Besides, it provides a large proportion of the daily folate requirement and is a rich source of beta carotene which is required for vitamin A formation. The corn kernels contain vitamin E which is a natural antioxidant for growth.
