Corn is a versatile, delicious product that contains a lot of dietary fiber, as well as fiber, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamin E, and other nutrients that activate metabolic processes. It is worth noting that corn can not only be added to salads, but also frozen, canned, boiled, baked, cooked with salt, butter, and even caramel.
