Corn totally confuses me!
Before you go and think I'm totally mad, let me explain! I had a corn craving today, and I knew that corn was pretty high in kJ but I've felt disgustingly sick all day so knew I could afford to have some.
Anywhoo, I weighed my half piece of corn on the cob, 158g. I couldn't find any info for corn on the cob on the Calorie King database so I just used the values for the KFC Corn Cobettes.
My little piece of corn cost me 779kJ!!!!!
However, corn kernels in a CAN is only 537kJ for 158g. What the?!?! Surely, if anything, canned corn would be MORE than corn on the cob because of the weight of the actual cob the corn is on!?
How can one small piece of corn on the cob be so high in kJ?! It's a vegetable, for Gods sakes!!!
I'm so confused
Can anyone shed some light!?
