Peter collins feb crops and other crops that feed ducks and other birds,” which is how the “corn” gets its name. “A lot of times,” says the farmer, “I’ll just give them their own crop.”
Then, about one-third of that farmer’s yearly crops, in his own orchard, include “boots, fern shoots and mulching plants.” (Fern shoots, if you hadn’t heard, are “an important source of protein” in humans.)
Corn has three essential amino acids: arginine, methionine and tryptophan (the precursor to serotonin). The other three, the beta-hydroxyl group of the amino acids, can only be found in the diet of some plants and animals, like cattle and pigs.
What’s in the corn?
Cotton and soybeans, two main producers of corn, are the main sources of the three beta-hydroxyl groups. “A small amount of corn and soybean oil can also contain tryptophan. This is why the word ‘corn’ refers to the whole plant,” says the farmer.
The rest is in a number of other plants, including lettuce, peas, spinach, carrots, cabbage, and eggplants. (I’m talking, of course, about potatoes.) But for some reason, some of that corn also contains soybean oil or a chemical called daidzein, which has anti-oxidants and cholesterol-lowering effects. “We use daidzein in a lot of our recipes,” explains the farmer.
So it’s not all corn, you know — it’s also corn, all아바타 바카라 other plants. It comes in different grades.
“It also contains a lot of other proteins,” and there “are things like beta-glycans,” which are “another food source of tryptophan. It’s also a very good source of fiber.”
And, says Coughlin, those fiber-rich peas and potatoes — which tend to carry a lot more starch and calcium than other vegetables — provide a lot of other dietary fiber as well. (That is, they do a lot to make us feel good about our bones and teeth.)
Is it worth it?
“You have to think about it,” says Coughli
