Sweetcorn is a good source of dietary fibre which contributes to normal laxation. Provides niacin (vitamin B3) which is needed for the release of energy from food and also the B vitamins biotin and folate. Biotin contributes to the maintenance of healthy skin, mucous membranes and hair while folate is needed for the formation of blood cells.
