|There a number of different kinds of corn; some examples include flour corn, flint corn, dent corn and sweet corn. These different varieties each have different culinary, agricultural and industrial uses. In addition to these different kinds, different corn species can be genetically modified and patented by whichever purveyor modifies the genetic strain. Corn can be grown organically or conventionally.|
Adherents to the Kaufmann 1 diet know that corn, under any and all circumstances, is off limits. This dietary restriction extends to anything made with corn (i.e., corn tortillas, corn bread, corn, chips, etc.) and anything made with parts of corn (i.e., corn syrup, corn starch, etc.). Even after graduating to the Kaufmann 2 and Life Phase of the diet, this particular restriction continues.
