It is a cereal that provides many nutrients and has been part of our diet for many centuries. But do you know exactly what the corn is?
Originally the meaning of corn, that is, what represented this name was “what sustains life”. And along with rice and wheat, it is the most cultivated and consumed cereal in the world.
The name with which this plant is designated comes from the same word used by the Indians of America, and therefore is very appropriate as far as its origin is concerned.
While maize was grown throughout America for thousands of years, it was a plant unknown until 1500 in the rest of the world.
