    Wow! GMO vs non-GMO corn

    Primal Fuel
    So I've added corn back into my diet as a healthy carb source since I am able to tolerate it without any problem, I love the taste, and I am able to get non-GMO corn (aka corn like the Native Americans would have eaten). Anyway, for the heck of it I wanted to see what the difference in nutritional value between non-GMO and GMO corn was, and I was astonished! Here is a good link for those of you interested.

    By the way, do any of you guys eat corn, in any of its forms? I personally love shrimp N grits, but nothing beats a nice ear of sweet silver queen corn. Mmmm!

    Thoughts?

    local corn season is just staring and i have access to the good stuff too so, yes, will have a few ears with my lobsters over the next month or so. excellent vehicle for butter.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    I don't eat it. I liked it as a child, but as my taste for sweets diminished, so did my taste for corn. Add to that the fact that it is has become ubiquitous in the food supply (feed for CAFO animals, HFCS, corn and veg oils), that it's not all that nutritious, and that it's a grain, and I see no reason to seek it out.

    That said, if I liked it, and I had an organic source that I trusted, I might use it in things like crawfish boils, etc.

    Ya, where do you get nonGMO corn? And I wouldn't call any sweet corn "nonGMO" since it was created in a radiation experiment.

    I don't eat corn or corn derivatives. Too paranoid. Afraid that even supposedly non-GMO corn is contaminated with the transgene. Breast cancer. Not worth it.
