Now it's the harvest season of corn again. Boiled corn and roasted corn are the favorite delicacies of many people. Many people like to eat a big mouthful of corn, but if you observe carefully, you will find that there are many light yellow particles on the corn cob. What is their nutritional value?

These remaining particles are called corn germ, which can be said to be the essence of corn. Compared with corn kernels, corn germ is more nutritious. Corn kernels are mainly starch and part of dietary fiber. Corn germ contains a lot of nutrients such as protein, fat and vitamins. The protein content is about 15%, and the fat is about 45% (of which 85% is oleic acid and sub- Unsaturated fatty acids based on oleic acid), in addition to about 8% of dietary fiber. In addition, corn germ is also a treasure house of vitamin E and phytosterols, and their content is much higher than that of corn kernels. Both of these substances are very good antioxidants, which have the effects of delaying aging, preventing cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, and lowering cholesterol.
