  • No, because it isn't. It is a grain and a starch. It swells up greatly with moisture just like rice and pasta and beans. Starch,starch and more starch. All will put some major fat in the gut and butt!!! Vegetables are like broccoli, squash, spinach, kale, okra, cabbage, cauliflower, etc.

  • No. It's a starch like potatoes and rice. I usually try to pair it with some other veggie and won't serve just corn if we're having rice or potatoes.

  • Corn is a starch. And technically squash is considered a fruit and winter squash will generally count as a starch when counting calories or tracking your diet.

  • Corn (Zea mays) isa grain. Corn is a monocotyledon with only one seed leaf like grasses. The easily identified "grains" (or cereal plants/grasses) such as wheat, oats, and barley are also monocots.

  • I can see where it would be mistaken as a vegetable.  Especially when products labeling them as mixed vegetables.
