Is Corn raw? And getting it from a can is bad, I know… But… is it? And if it has to be cooked before eating it, then? No? I read somewhere that humans actually can’t digest the skin of corn, so maybe we’re not supposed to eat it then? weeps quietly It’s like my fav food of all time :(


  • Canned corn is def not raw. But fresh corn on th cob is. Just take a sharp knife and slice it down the length to pop off the kernels. Even before I was raw I much preferred the taste to raw corn to cooked.

    Raw corn is yummy when it is in season, sweet and crisp!

    Raw corn is excellent is salads, espescially a mexican themed salad with chopped iceberg or romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cilantro, salsa and guacamole. Yumm!!

    There are also lots of recipes online for raw corn chowders. Easy to make and delicious.

    I’ve tried raw dehydrated corn tortilla chips, but every version I tried didn’t come out very good. They all had an odd taste.


    All the best,
