🛍 Product Information (Main) (English)：
Other Names：Sweet Corn | Sweetcorn
Product Description：It is an important food crop with the highest total output in the world; corn can also be used as feed, and it is also used as a raw material for ethanol fuel in the biotechnology industry. Eating more corn can prevent degenerative macular degeneration in old age and help protect the eyes from UV and blue light damage. In addition, corn contains a lot of potassium, which helps stabilize blood pressure and body water balance. The vitamins, carotene, and plant cellulose contained in corn also help to expel carcinogens and other toxins, delay aging, lower serum cholesterol, and prevent skin lesions.
Maize and cornmeal (ground dried maize) constitute a staple food in many regions of the world. Maize is used to produce cornstarch, a common ingredient in home cooking and many industrialized food products. Maize starch can be hydrolyzed and enzymatically treated to produce syrups, particularly high fructose corn syrup, a sweetener; and also fermented and distilled to produce grain alcohol. Grain alcohol from maize is traditionally the source of Bourbon whiskey. Corn flour is used to make cornbread and other baked products.
Within the United States, the usage of maize for human consumption constitutes only around 1/40th of the amount grown in the country. In the United States and Canada, maize is mostly grown to feed livestock, as forage, silage (made by fermentation of chopped green cornstalks), or grain. Maize meal is also a significant ingredient of some commercial animal food products.
Supply Season：The main production period is from November to April of the following year, and it is available in Hong Kong throughout the year.

When corn was first introduced to an agricultural system not used by traditional Native Americans, it was generally popular, hailed for its productivity. However, wherever corn is a staple food, widespread malnutrition quickly emerges. It's a mystery because these types of malnutrition don't typically occur in Native Americans who eat corn as their main staple.
It turned out that from at least 1200 B.C. to 1500 B.C., Mesoamericans had learned to soak corn in lye water (a process now ) made. They did this to release the corn husk, but (unbeknownst to the natives or the colonists) it happened to release the B vitamin niacin, the lack of which is the root cause of pellagra. When corn was introduced into the diets of non-Native Americans, they did not have the necessary cultural knowledge acquired over thousands of years in the Americas. When pellagra reached epidemic proportions in parts of the southern United States in the late 1800s, medical researchers debated two theories for its origin: The deficiency theory (which turned out to be correct) held that pellagra was due to a lack of certain nutrients The germ theory states that pellagra is caused by a stable fly-borne pathogen. A third theory, advanced by eugenicist Charles Davenport, holds that people contract pellagra only if they are susceptible to pellagra due to some "constitutional, heritable" trait of the affected individual . Once alkaline treatment and dietary diversity were understood and applied, pellagra disappeared in the developed world. The development of high-lysine corn and the promotion of a more balanced diet also contributed to its demise. Pellagra is still present today in food-poor areas and refugee camps where people survive on donated corn.
Corn contains lipid transfer protein, a nondigestible protein that survives cooking. The protein has been linked to a rare and understudied allergy to corn in humans. Allergic reactions can cause rashes, swelling or itching of the mucous membranes, diarrhea, vomiting, wheezing and, in severe cases, anaphylaxis. It's unclear how common this allergy is in the general population.
