What is the difference between baby corn and sweet corn
Corn shoots and sweet corn are both Gramineae, which are rich in nutrition, sweet, fresh, crisp and tender, and are favored by consumers of all walks of life. So what is the difference between baby corn and sweet corn?
Let’s get to know sweet corn first. Sweet corn is not a species of corn, nor is it a subspecies isolated from zea mays. It is a type of maize that differs from other maize due to the existence of one or several genes. Sweet corn is a type of vegetable corn. It is one of the most popular vegetables in the United States and Canada, and its consumption has also grown rapidly in parts of Asia and Europe, becoming a symbol of summer. Among the processed vegetable crops in the United States, according to agricultural value, sweet corn ranks third after potatoes and tomatoes. Compared with ordinary corn, the conversion of soluble sugar to starch in sweet corn is slower.
What is the difference between baby corn and sweet corn?
Different edible parts: The part of the sweet corn edible plant is the immature kernel, which is mainly composed of the endosperm and the ovary wall (immature caryopsis). Its fresh food or eating quality is determined by the taste and structure of the endosperm and the softness of the peel, which are all affected by genes. The shoots of corn are eaten with young and tender ears whose grains have not yet been raised. That is to say, the difference between the corn shoots and the sweet corn is that the corn shoots are eaten with the seeds and the ears, while the sweet corn only eats the tender seeds but not the ears.
The shape of the plant is different: the shape of the corn shoots is like the tip of the tender bamboo shoots, so it is called the corn shoots. The corn shoots are beautiful in appearance, crispy and delicious. The botanical characteristics of bamboo shoots are not essentially different from those of sweet corn, except that the plants are slightly shorter than sweet corn, with strong tillering power, more leaves, smaller ears, and longer bracts.
