Corn, whose Latin name is 'Zea mays', is from the family of wheatgrass. Its homeland is South America. It grows in Anatolia and Black Sea regions in our country. It likes humid, warm climates. Although it is usually planted in June and harvested in September, the harvest time may be earlier depending on the regions. It is an annual, monoecious cereal plant.

Its body is hard and upright. The sessile leaves are broad, long, hairy on the upper surface, glabrous on the lower surface, and cover the base and the stem in a sheath. The flowers that open in June or August are covered with leaflets called husk. Corn kernels are light or dark yellow, brown or reddish in color. There are five types of corn; hard corn, flour corn, horse tooth corn, popcorn, and spelled corn.

Corn, which takes its place on the market stalls in its season and is unlike any other fruit with its unique taste, is also an important food source in world cuisine. It adds a different flavor to salads, meals, soups, pizzas and enriches them. It is a great condiment as a side dish. Delicious foods can be prepared with corn.

From the corn silk plant; Corn silk tea, corn silk tincture, corn silk extract, and extract are produced.

A specialist should be consulted for therapeutic use.
