Corns 4200+ uses

In case you did not know already corn is everywhere and in everything. Only 0.7% of corn that is grown in the U.S. is for “veggies”. The rest is for everything else.

I came across this the other day from Robyn O’Brien. The problem is those who are allergic can’t get away from it easily, we will constantly have to check the ingredients of everything. It is a sad and funny thought at the same time how corn growers, producers and all those who use corn in their products will have to change when corn becomes a top allergy they will have to deal with in order for consumers to use their products safely. I cannot wait for that day but at the same time I think it will cause a huge hiccup that won’t be pretty.

The following is from 2010 World of Corn- Innovation in Action. Share with your friends and family if they need to be made aware of how prevalent corn is and the hard work it is to avoid it. Oh and the list below is just a few of the 4200 + items corn is in.
