Corn contains multiple nutrients that can bring benefits to the body. When it comes to the diet, sweet corn works well as a side dish, or an ingredient in soups, salads or casseroles. By combining it with other foods, you can boost the nutrient content even more.
Sweet corn has a moderate amount of protein for a vegetable. A 1-cup serving contains just over 5 grams. The total recommended daily intake of protein is 46 grams for women and 56 grams for men. Sweet corn is also low in fat. A 1-cup serving contains about 2.5 grams of total fat and less than a 0.5 grams of saturated fat. Adding butter to your corn will impact the fat content. A single tablespoon adds over 11 grams of total fat and 7 grams of saturated fat.
