Corn is attained from the germ of the corn plant. On every plant, one to two corncobs grow and the corn on the spindle, depending on the variety, can vary in colour, for example, white, yellow, orange, brown. Corn originates from the region between Mexico and Peru. In 1493, Columbus brought corn to Europe and the first corn field crops were planted in 1525. Corn oil is extracted from the separated, fat-rich germ buds (Zea Maize L.). It has a light yellow colour and a neutral flavour. From 100g of corn, 1 litre of oil is produced. It is rich in vitamin E and unsaturated fatty acids.
