Flavor Profile: True to type
History: This staple in Central American cuisines has been used for centuries. Known also as maize, corn was first domesticated as a food source for the Olmec and Mayan people. It was carried to Europe around the 16th century when traders saw its value and array of uses. It is now a huge commodity across the globe, being massively overproduced. Genetically modified corn makes up nearly 90% of all harvested corn in the United States. One of the most prominently GM food products, corn has been continuously modified to be herbicide intolerant, making organic corn an even more prized ingredient.
