CORN / MAKKAI
Hi, I am a baby corn; known as bhutta in India. I am a popular Asian vegetable and can be found in stir-fried dishes with other vegetables. I am an excellent source of vitamin B and am high in potassium and folic acid. I also have a better glycemic index than regular corn, making it a great alternative. Here are my health benefits.
I contain a large proportion of magnesium, iron, copper and most importantly phosphorus, which is needed for healthy bones. I prevent constipation, haemorrhoids and even lower the risk of colon cancer considerably due to fibre content. I am rich in antioxidants, which help in keeping the skin younger for longer. The vitamin C, carotenoids and bioflavonoids contained in me keeps your heart healthy by controlling cholesterol levels and increasing the flow of blood in the body. I benefit health as I am rich in vitamin B and folic acid that prevents anaemia. Sweet corn Benefits the health of both the expecting mother and baby.
