About 10,000 years ago, corn was first cultivated in parts of Mexico and Central America. Corn is usually considered a vegetable but it is actually a grain, rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Although the yellow color corn/maize is very common around the world, did you know that corn varieties come in many other colors too such as red, orange, purple, blue, white and even black. Corn or maize is a grain plant, which originated in southern Mexico. The kernels of the seeds of corn hold the majority of nutrients and are the most consumed parts.
