Sweet corn is a starchy food with good fiber, but turns quickly into glucose leaveing people with diabetes in need of insulin to regulate blood sugar and unsatisfied with their meal or snack, resulting in the possibility of overeating. Sweet Corn is high in sugar and 1 medium ear of sweet corn gives you about 140 calories and 1 1/2 carbohydrate servings
I use 2 tablespoons Hellmenn's light mayo with apple cider vinegar. I use a little apple cider vinegar to make the mayo more thinner, than add garlic or mustard for flavor. You can change the consistence with the apple cider.

Sweet corn is high in protein but a high carb food. Canned corn usually has salt and sugar added and creamstyle corn has no cream nor any milk added...it only has SUGAR and CORNSTARCH which raises the calorie conten. Eat corn fresh and in moderation.
