  1. What would a world without corn look like?

    Corn and products made from corn improve the lives of Americans in thousands of little ways. Often, consumers don't even know corn is present, let aone know the role it plays. But if corn and its products weren't available, many common products would be less useful, more expensive, even unavailable. Here are some examples of the little annoyances and bigger problems Americans would face without corn.

  2. What kinds of products is corn used in?

    A corn kernel is made up of four major components: starch, fiber, protein and oil. Corn can be processed in different ways to tap into these components and use them in all kinds of products. A typical grocery store will contain 4,000 products that list corn ingredients on the label but many other products also depend on corn, from paper goods and cardboard packaging to all the meat, milk, eggs, poultry, and other protein products that come from corn- fed animals.
