It’s the most produced food commodity in the United States, but only 1% of it is actually sweet corn eaten by humans. The rest is turned into ethanol, animal feed, processed ingredients like high fructose corn syrup, and exported. And making that much corn causes a slew of environmental, economic, and health issues. Today, we cover why corn got so popular, what problems corn agriculture creates, and how we might improve. With special guest Dr. Natalie Hunt: Teaching Assistant Professor in the Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems Engineering at the University of Minnesota.
