OF-FLINT & DENT CORN
 OF-Flint & Dent Corn

Portion for Analysis: Approximately 250 grams

 

Flint corn (TOP) is a hard, glossy looking, and more rounded kernel and may have a slight depression (but not dent) in the crown. Dent corn (BOTTOM) is a softer textured kernel and normally has a dent in the crown

 

NOTE: Do not confuse end kernels of dent corn with flint corn. End kernels of dent corn without a dent in the crown are shaped similarly to flint corn.
