Whether grilled, roasted, steamed or microwaved sweetcorn is a firm family favourite and should be savoured during its relatively short season.
Sweetcorn is one of the few veg that actually improves nutritionally when it is cooked!
Reasons to eat sweetcorn:
Despite its sweet flavour, one ear of corn actually has about the same number of calories as an apple and less than a quarter the amount of sugar. You can quite happily indulge in corn on a diet and enjoy its nutritional benefits.
Sweetcorn contains high quantities of two phytochemicals that help to promote healthy vision - lutein and zeaxanthin. These have been shown both to help prevent macular degeneration and cataract formation.
Packed with dietary fibre, sweetcorn helps to keep the gut in good working order and can help keep you feeling fuller for longer.
