Maize (Corn)

Corn also known as maize is a cereal grain plant. The kernels or seeds of corn hold the majority of its nutrients and are the most commonly consumed parts. They come in multiple colors, depending on where the corn is grown in Nigeria and what species or variety they happen to be. Another genetic variant, called sweetcorn, has more sugar and less starch in the nutritive material. Buy corn in wholesale or retail from Nigeria NOW.

Maize also known as corn, is a large grain plant first domesticated by indigenous people in Mexico about 10,000 years ago. Maize has become a staple food in many parts of the world, with total production surpassing that of wheat or rice. However, little of this maize is consumed directly by humans. Most is used for corn ethanol, animal feed and other maize products, such as corn starch and corn syrup. The six major types of corn are dent corn, flint corn, pod corn, popcorn, flour corn, and sweet corn.

Maize is also one of the most common and important food crops across Nigeria and Africa as a whole. It is widely eaten in various forms and more than 900 million Africans depend on maize every year because it is often cheaper than rice and wheat, two of the other most consumed cereals. In fact, many of our daily diets in Nigeria contain maize either directly or indirectly. Production of meat, eggs and dairy products (like milk and yoghurt) would be difficult without maize, which is an important ingredient in animal feed.

As Africa’s population continues to grow rapidly over the coming years, the demand and consumption of maize will increase. Nigeria remains Africa’s largest producer with nearly 8 million tons produced per annum. It is closely followed by South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya, and Uganda. The United States remains the world’s largest producer with 42 percent of all maize produced globally.
