    Do you know about corn
    When monsoon Is around there is definitely corn around, there are 600 kernels in each ear of corn. Corn always has even no of rows each ear [math wizard] vow.

    The corn plant has both male and female parts, the silk is the female and tassel is the male. Farmers grow corn on every continent except <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:place>Antarctica</st1:place>.

    The main ingredient in our pet food is corn; does your doggie eat more corn than you?
    Sorbitol produced from the corn sugar dextrose Is used in toothpaste as a low calorie water based soluble bulking agent. We brush our teeth with corn every morning.

    The corn cob is actually the part of the corn plant’s flower. Each tassel on a corn plant
    Releases as many as 5 million grains of pollen..

    Pioneers planted 4 corn kernels for every plant they hope to harvest, “1 for maggot, 1 for crow,1 for the cutworm and 1 to grow….

    Now coming to the nutrition part of it,

    The baby corns have flooded the market, you can start from kabab, to cutlets, to corn rice, anything even the aromatic roasted corn on fire with some lemon and mint chutney, with rain in the air…sunkan

    Hi Sunkan,

    Thanks for sharing this information. This is the season for corn here and I find that even the bigger corns have very tender kernels - great to munch on.

    Cheers!

    dear srini,
    according to study corn can reduce weight like hell so dont feed the kids too much of it, yes it has protein so twice a week is good, in the pop corn form or make cutlets, or if they like make it with cheese on a toast, they will love it..sunkan
