Re: Random question about CORN
Corn, as good as it tastes, is not easily digested (as you discovered) and, in fact, mostly goes through the digestive tract unless it is ground into flour. This is one reason why we should never feed babies corn, because as cute as it is to watch them nibble on the cob, the results do show up in the next BM. It's usually not as obvious in adults but it does happen. Probably the volume of the BM hides the minute amount of kernel corn, but the more corn you eat at a meal, the more you will see later on.
Corn is listed as one of the five highest intolerant foods, along with wheat, soy, dairy and citric acid. I'm not read up on the nutritional value of corn though I know we do absorb it's calories (that's why it's not allowed in any reputable weightloss dietary plans) and probably what nutrients it contains are minimal and we are actually better off if we limit the amount of corn we eat. Especially the corn syrup that's being put into so many pre-packeged products at the grocery store. There's no health benefits in corn syrup, it's basically corn sugar and not good for you.
Why not do an online research on the pros and cons of eating corn and it's byproducts and see if you can get an answer? You've sparked my curiosity to learn more. But, personally, I hardly ever eat corn/cornbread myself as it's heavy in my stomach.
