Yellow Dent Corn (Maize)
 Yellow Dent Corn 

Yellow dent corn is produced primarily for animal feed and industrial uses such as ethanol, cooking oil, etc. Some hybrids with specific starch properties are also grown for food. Food corns are typically contracted and sold to dry-mill processors and used in alkaline cooking processes for making masa, tortilla chips, snack foods, and grits.

Dent corn is standardized under the U.S. Standards for Corn.
