White Corn

One of the very special products we handle is our Supersweet White Corn.  A very seasonal item, it is one of the most popular products we carry.  The supersweet varieties were developed by normal plant breeding in the early 1950s in the U.S.

They contain more sugars and fewer starches than conventional sweet corn.  In addition to tasting sweeter, our corn also has a longer shelf life than conventional sweet corn.

Our corn is harvested and rushed to the cooling facility, where it is vacuum-cooled, after which ice is injected into the packages to maintain the temperature and to maintain the necessary moisture to keep the product at its freshest.
