Sweet Corn

(Zea mays convar. Saccharata)

Roadside stalls selling fresh sweet corn are a common sight during the Gisborne summer when local children often eat the cobs uncooked. This is when we harvest to supply our customers with sweet corn ingredients in a convenient format year round.

Fertile alluvial soils, hot summer days and cool nights provide an ideal growing environment for Cedenco to grow 100% GMO free sweet corn.

A good source of ferulic acid – which is enhanced by processing – along with zeaxanthin and lutein, sweet corn is a popular flavour with young and old.
