White corn is a sweet corn variety. Its ears are wrapped in tightly layered pale lime green to white husks. One ear of corn can contain up to 400 kernels growing in rows lengthwise. Both the kernels and milk of white corn are creamy white in color.Though some people believe that yellow corn is sweeter, thats not the case. The only difference is that the naturally occurring pigment that makes those kernels yellow, beta carotene, gives them a bit of a nutritional edge over white corn—beta carotene turns into vitamin A during digestion.The occurrence of yellow or white colour of maize kernels is controlled by a single gene. The difference between yellow and white maize grains is due to the colour of the nutritive tissue that surrounds the embryo in the seed, called the endosperm. Endosperm colour in maize is controlled by a single gene.Health Benefits
