Nutrients in White Corn?

A sign posted over fresh produce at a major natural foods chain states that white corn is a good source of vitamin C and is very low in cholesterol. 


Corn is more than “very low in cholesterol” -- it has zero, just like all plant foods. And with only 5 mg vitamin C per 85 g serving (cooked), it is not a good source. A good source would have at least 6 mg vitamin C, which many other fruits and vegetables easily exceed. Aside from some fiber and 12% of the DV for thiamin, white corn is not much of a nutrition powerhouse.
