    would yellow corn be alright for bulking? I know its not low in gi, but what about its nutrient profile?

    Why wouldn't it be. It contains more carbs than some are led to think in spite of a lot of it ending up in your poop. I dunno it's actual profile though. Sufice it to say, whole corn is lower than corn flour on the GI scale.Bottom line it's fine. Just don't make it your primary carb source. I think you know that though.

    It's also very high in lutein (yellow corn of course) which your eyes will appreciate!

    The outside layer of the corn does not digest, the internal 'meat' of the corn is digested fine.

    Corn is yummy and quite good for you in moderation. I like to chop it up in the food processor and add it to all sorts of various dishes.
