How Is Stone-Ground Corn Different?
Corn has an important role in history and has been consumed in the Americas for more than 5,000 years and remains a dietary staple today. Stone-ground corn, or whole-grain cornmeal, is ground between two stones and makes a hearty and welcome addition to baked goods and also works well as a base for savory or sweet recipes of any kind, including baked tortilla chips. Whether you opt for yellow or white stone-ground corn, you'll increase your vitamin, mineral and fiber intake. Yellow stone-ground corn has an advantage over its white counterpart, however, due to the fact that it offers more beneficial carotenoids which cause its color.
Are There Nutritional Benefits to Eating Corn Tortilla Chips?
Stone-ground corn helps to boost your vitamin intake, especially your intake of vitamins B1, also known as thiamin and B6 or pyridoxine. The thiamin in your diet helps to promote immune function, which protects you from diseases and helps your cells make new, usable energy. Pyridoxine aids in healthy brain development and also helps your brain cells to communicate with each other. A half-cup serving of white or yellow stone-ground corn boasts over 200 micrograms of thiamin and almost 190 micrograms of pyridoxine. This makes up 14 percent of your daily B-6 requirements, as well as 20 to 21 percent of the daily B-1 intakes for men and women respectively.
