Corn, a source of carbohydrates other than rice. Surely all of ReadCash's friends here have enjoyed corn. The most popular and very easy way to process corn is to simply boil it. Only boiled a few moments without additional seasoning, boiled corn already tastes sweet and will be very delicious when paired with a warm drink.

However, did you know that there are many benefits of boiled corn that we enjoy? In my country, corn is most popularly processed by boiling and is a food that is very popular with people of Indonesia. We used to enjoy boiled corn instead of rice because of its high carbohydrate content. Apart from being a source of carbohydrates, corn also has many minerals that have their respective benefits.

First benefit of boiled corn is that it can provide more energy. Carbohydrate content in boiled corn can provide energy for our body. Carbohydrates are an important source of energy. So do not be surprised if boiled corn is one of staple foods for healthy rice substitutes.

Added corn to chicken soup.

Next benefit of boiled corn is to improve eye health. Although this sounds strange, because we often know that corn is only a source of carbohydrates, in fact eating boiled corn can improve eye health. This is because boiled corn contains beta-carotene.

Content of beta carotene is efficacious in maintaining eye health. Because, beta-carotene is a compound that is able to support production of vitamin A. Meanwhile, as we know vitamin A is a type of vitamin that is good for eyes. Not only that, corn also contains pigment zeaxanthin which is believed to be good for our eyes.

Folic acid is needed by fetus as a building block for cell system and nervous and spinal systems. So, if you want your fetus to be healthier, you can consume boiled corn as an additional food.

If fetus does not have a good folic acid content, it will usually experience problems. One of them is birth defects in babies. Not only for fetus, content of folic acid can also help pregnant women prevent anemia.

Furthermore, as a substitute for white rice, it turns out that many people who are on a diet choose boiled corn as their diet menu. Not only benefits of boiled corn are good for health of body, but boiled corn is also able to support weight loss of someone who is on a diet. Besides having a low calorie content, as well as high carbohydrates, corn is also rich in protein which is good for those of you who are on a diet.
