Fiber in corn?
Im trying to up my fiber, I have acid reflux disease and fiber works the best for it at least for me. I started eating a lot more corn for the carbs and because I thought it would be high in fiber. When I looked at the package though it says there only 1.5 grams per cup, how? If the majority of it comes out whole if you know what I mean. Could they only be counting soluble fiber.

Corn is a grain and most, if not all, grains are not going to be primarily fiber. If you're not digesting it well, then cut it out of the diet. Corn is amongst the most genetically engineered crops out there.M.Ed. Ex Phys

Corn is very beneficial for health one normal size of corn provides 10% of our daily needs of dietary fiber.And this help in controlling many disease and may lower heart disease .

I would bet that unless your eating organic grown corn you are probably ingesting a lot of things that are not going to help control diseases.
As far as fiber goes, go by the package that you are using. If you want to up your fiber intake, use greens like spinach and broccoli or buy a non-flavored powder.
When I do a keto style diet, I add it to my IFN Protean Ice Cream or Muffins.

If you want to increase fiber, eat more green veggies

I already get most of my fiber through green veg, that's not what I was asking. What I was asking is if anyone can give me an accurate amount of fiber for corn.
