Corn on the cob is a classic staple of the summer barbecue season, and it’s healthy on its own. However, don’t have any misconceptions about it. “Corn is a starchy vegetable,” says Vandana Sheth, R.D.N., C.D.E., and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. “It has almost three times the carbohydrate content as non-starchy vegetables like leafy greens.” It’s also important to note that what you put on it can easily negate the potential nutritional benefits, so avoid going heavy on the butter and salt. Instead, Sheth says opt for bolder, healthier flavors like garlic, paprika, chili powder, or lemon juice. An average ear of corn is just 59 calories (mostly carbs) and, among trace amounts of several vitamins and minerals, has some fiber (7% of 2,000-calorie DV), which is helpful in weight loss and muscle growth, and thiamin (7%), which aids in converting food into fuel.
