Corn/maize shoots can be eaten when they resemble large blades of grass that taste like sweet corn. Young maize shoots look like yellow grass and accumulate a powerful antibiotic substance called DIMBOA, a natural defense against pathogenic bacteria and fungus. Corn does not contain the gluten that causes celiac disease. The whole baby corn in husk may also be eaten, silk and all. Corn/maize kernels are very high in starch, which turns into sugar in the body. The really healthy part of the plant is the cornsilk (see Cornsilk)
