Indian corn

Indian corn, also known as Flint corn is a variant of maize, the same species as common corn. Because each kernel has a hard outer layer to protect the soft endosperm, it is likened to being hard as flint; hence the name.

The coloration of flint corn is often different from white and yellow dent corns, many of which were bred later. Most flint corn is multi-colored.

It is a good source of resistant starch (RS), which can be used in various food products for its health benefits. RS has been associated with improved cholesterol metabolism and reduced risk of type II diabetes and colon cancer. Various bioactive compounds with the health-promotion and disease-prevention properties present in fruits and vegetables have also been reported in corn.
