SWEET CORN SHOOTS
Sweet Corn Shoots are grown in the dark for around 2-3 weeks before harvest. They taste very sweet like sweet popcorn. Mostly the sweet corn shoots are used for an edible garnish on cakes and patisseries.
Corn is a good source of the phenolic flavonoid antioxidant, ferulic acid. Several research studies suggest that ferulic acid plays a vital role in preventing cancers, aging, and inflammation in humans.
It also contains good levels of some of the valuable B-complex group of vitamins such as thiamin, niacin, pantothenic acid, folates, riboflavin, and pyridoxine. Many of these vitamins function as co-factors to enzymes during substrate metabolism.
Further, it contains healthy amounts of some essential minerals like zinc, magnesium, copper, iron, and manganese.
