Baby Corn per 0.5kg


Corn contains antioxidants and plant compounds that may provide a number of health benefits.

Lutein and Zeaxanthin Content May Benefit Eye Health

Corn is particularly high in lutein and zeaxanthin, two carotenoids that may prevent cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

This is likely because lutein and zeaxanthin make up a large part of the macular region of your eyes (9Trusted Source, 10Trusted Source, 11Trusted Source).

One study in 365 adults found that those who had the highest intake of carotenoids — especially lutein and zeaxanthin — had a 43% lower chance of developing AMD compared to those with the lowest intake (11Trusted Source).

Therefore, regularly eating corn may promote eye health — especially for those who are at risk of AMD.
