was first domesticated in Mexico around 3500 BC. When Native
Americans taught the Pilgrims how to cultivate corn, over 200
varieties had been developed. Corn is actually a grass and is a good source
of zeaxanthin that is best absorbed with some fat. This
antioxidant phytochemical helps protect our eyes. Spanish
explorers were responsible for introducing corn into Europe.
Cornbread is still popular in Spain.
