Variety classification

Corn has a wide variety of uses in its long history of cultivation.Cultivar,First generation hybridHas been developed.Hybrid stressHybrid varieties that utilize (combination of mating in which the growth of the child becomes active when different varieties are crossed)1920 eraからThe United States of AmericaIt was developed in Japan, and the yield has increased dramatically since then.Also, in recent yearsgene recombinationThe cultivars that have been cultivated are also expanding.

Intragrain is commonly used to classify corn.StarchIt is a grain classification that determines the species according to the structure of[7]..There are differences in usage and cultivation method depending on the species.

scientific nameIs "Zea mays subsp. Mays (L.) var. ~", So it is written as "ZmL var. ~".

Variety for food use

Sweet corn (ZmLvar.saccharata)

Edible varieties.boil,Bake(Grilled corn),SteamCooking methodThere is.
It is also a material for processed foods, for exampleCorn flakes,CornmealIt can also be used as a material.The seeds contain a large amount of sugar and have a strong sweetness, but the taste deteriorates after harvesting and is exhausted by respiration, and the taste deteriorates in a few hours at room temperature in summer.Countermeasures include thorough low temperature control or heating immediately after harvesting to hold breathing.
Baby corn (young corn)
Boiled young ears of the second sweet edible varieties,saladIt is used for stewed dishes.
Sweet yellow grain seeds
A variety with a lot of yellow fruit and sweetness.
A pioneer of raw edible varieties that have been on the market since the 1990s, with an average sugar content of 12 degrees.
Can be eaten raw with a sugar content of 15 degrees or more.
gold Rush
A variety with soft fruit and high sugar content.Can be eaten raw.
Miel Corn
A variety with a thin grain skin and a high sugar content.Can be eaten raw.What is Miel?Frenchso"honeyIt means "sweetness like".
Picnic cone
An improved version of Ajirai with a high average sugar content of 18 degrees or more, and a small variety.Can be eaten raw.Seedling companies publicize that the sweetness is increased by cooling after cooking, and recommend that you eat cold after cooking.[9].
Sweet bicolor grain seeds
A mixed variety with a mixture of colors such as white and yellow.
Honey bantam
The first variety cultivated and distributed in Japan.After that, since the appearance of "Phi Ta Khon" due to breeding, production has decreased and it is disappearing from market distribution.
A variety with a soft grain skin and a high sugar content.Softer and sweeter than honey bantam.
Dream corn

Cocktail corn
A variety with a mixture of yellow and white grains (cocktail), soft fruit and high sugar content.Can be eaten raw.
Sweet daughter (Kankan Musume)
A variety that has a high sugar content and can be eaten raw.The decrease in sugar content over time is slow.However, it has a low germination rate and is a difficult variety to cultivate.
Sweet white grain seeds
A variety with white fruits and a lot of sweetness.
pure white
It is also called white corn or phantom corn, and is touted as having an average sugar content of 17 degrees or more.Raw food is also possible, but when cooked, the taste is slightly inferior to that of sweet yellow and bicolor varieties.
Snow fairy
An improved version of pure white.Raw food is also possible with an average sugar content of 17 degrees.
White chocolate
An improved version of pure white.Raw food is also possible with an average sugar content of 17 degrees.

Although the classifications shown above are based on color and taste, many genes related to them have been identified.Among the genes related to sweetness, the su gene, se gene, sh2 gene, etc. are particularly important, and depending on their combination, there are types such as sweet, super sweet, and ultra super sweet.The combination of genes makes a difference in sugar content and sugar type (flavor).Sweet varietiescanningIt is for processing such as, and is rarely distributed as fruits and vegetables.Super sweet varieties and ultra super sweet varieties are used as fruits and vegetables, but some people find the ultra super sweet varieties to be too sweet.

Hard grain type (Flint corn) (ZmLvar.indurata)

Mainly used for food, livestock feed and industrial raw materials.

Explosive species (popcorn) (ZmLvar.everta)

Varieties mainly used as livestock feed

Dent corn (ZmLvar.indentata)
When grown, the sugar contained in the fruit is mostly converted to starch, so it is not normally edible.Mainly for livestockfeed,Starch(Cornstarch) Raw material, used for ethanol production.Speaking of corn production in the United States, the production of dent species is usually about the same for feed and ethanol, and these account for more than 7% of the total, and about 1 to 2% are for export to overseas. In addition, the remaining 1% is for industrial use, etc., and is stable without major increase or decrease.[11].
USDAAccording to the Federal Grain Inspection Office (FGIS), there are two categories of dent corn hybrids, classified by grain color (yellow or white).Yellow dent species are mainly animal feed andethanol,Edible oilUsed for industrial purposes such as[12].. FGIS says "Food (processed meat,tortillaChips,Snack food,Corn grits), White dent species are generally used for edible grade cornstarch, paper, etc. "[13]..Depending on the starch content, the yellow dent species alsoHuman capitalUsed in the production of foods consumed by[12].

Currently the most popularTheosintoOrigin theory[15]And it is supported by the results of genetic analysis etc.[16]..The theory that originated from the genus TripsacumMicrosatelliteAs a result of analysis, it is denied[16]..In addition, the divergence age of theosinto and corn is said to be about 9200 years ago.[16].

As a theory that once fought for origin,

  2. Two seedsmatingThe theory that it was created by letting it.Candidate ancestors include the extinct wild ancestors and the genus Tripsacum, and the genus Tripsacum and theosinto.

5000 BCBy that time, it was cultivated on a large scale and was a major part of the Americas.Agricultural products(However,CassavaWas the staple foodAmazonexcept for).In the new continentAmaranth,QuinoaIt is the only grain that can be the main grain except for minor grains such asMaya civilization,Aztec civilizationAlso in Japan, corn was cultivated on a large scale and formed the basis of both civilizations.[1].South America OfAndesIn the areapotatoCentered onpotatoMaize has been a staple food crop, but corn is also an important crop, especially.RitualSake used for ceremoniesChicha) Has been consumed in large quantities as a raw material[17].Inca EmpireThen, a stepped farmland was constructed and corn was cultivated in large quantities.[18].

Propagation within the New World (Americas)

After diversification from the place of origin to the highlands of Mexico → "Western / Northern Mexico → Southwestern North America → Eastern North America → カナダOr "Southern / Eastern Mexico → Guatemala → Caribbean → South American lowlands → Andean highlandsIs believed to have propagated to[16].

Propagation to the old world

1492 years,Christopher ColumbusBrought back corn grown by the local Caribbean when he discovered the Americas.EuropeWas transmitted to[19](Columbus exchange).Cultivation began almost immediately, and in 1500SevilleThere is a record as a cultigen plant in[20]..The background is unknown, but the first large-scale cultivationトルコ(Ottoman Empire) And was called "Turkish wheat".A novel plant, corn, until the early 18th centuryTithe taxNot subject tomilletRapidly propagated in the form of conversion[21].

In the middle of the 16th century地中海Spread over the coast, by the end of the 16th centuryThe United Kingdom,Eastern EuropeCultivation has expanded throughout Europe.Initially accepted as food for the poor in Europe, the overwhelmingly high yield rate compared to previous grains is "17rd century crisisIt was decided to ease the increasing population pressure.[22]. Also,Age of DiscoveryThis grain was quickly spread all over the world by the trade ships of European countries.AfricaIn the 16th century on the continent,AsiaIt reached the beginning of the 16th century, and also to Japan at the eastern end of Asia in 1579.This spread was rapid, in 1652 at the southern tip of Africa.Cape TownToDutch East India Company Cape colonyAlready on-site when theKhoekhoeThe corn that propagated from the north of the land route was widespread in[23].

Although spread in Africa, until the 19th centurySorghumThere were also many cultivations of traditional crops.However, since the latter half of the 19th century, the demand for corn has increased as food for miners, and the workers have been increasing.MigrantEven after returning to his own village after finishing the above, he began to like the familiar taste of corn.In addition, corn ripens faster than sorghum, so it could be harvested even during the traditional off-season.[24]..For this reason, especiallyEast Africa,Southern AfricaThe conversion from sorghum to corn progressed in.However, corn was more vulnerable to high temperatures and dryness than sorghum,SahelIn hot and dry areas such as zones, it was not possible to destroy traditional grains.[25].

Pre-Columbian corn

Generally by Christopher Columbus mentioned aboveOld worldIt is said that it was brought back to Japan and spread, but it already existed in the Old World before Columbus, and it was in Africa in the 12th century and in the 13th century.Iberian Peninsula(スペイン,PortugalThere is a study that it was cultivated in)[26]..AncientPolynesianThere is also a theory that corn was included in the movement of American products and technologies across the Pacific Ocean to Africa.[27].

Propagation to Japan

There are three routes to Japan, but the oldest route is called the southwestern route, which was transmitted by Europeans.There are several theories,De CandreIs from 1573 to 1591 (Tensho era)PortugalDepending on the person, tropical hard grain species (flint species)NagasakiIt is said that it was brought to.milletAt that time, it was also called "Nanban millet" in addition to the name "corn" because it resembled.漢字Then.NanbanWritten as corn or corn (ball is beautiful, corn means foreign)[28][29].

after that,Mount AsoAt the foot of the mountainShikokuIn the mountains ofFoot of Mt. FujiIt spread to areas that are not suitable for rice cultivation in terms of climate and water use, and at the end of the 18th centuryEzoMororan (currentHokkaidoMuroran) Has been reached[30]..However, at that time, there were only hard grain species, so to the lastMilletIt was treated and was often mixed with porridge and rice cake to add bulk.[28].Edo PeriodCooking book "Book breakfast book"Eat it on the fire, or dry it and grind it into powder.MochiIt is good to make it, "and it was eaten as a processed product.[29].

Since the Meiji era, American early-maturing dent and flint species made by modern breeding methods have been introduced to Hokkaido.PioneerStarted large-scale upland farming.Corn became established as raw food and feed, and eventuallyTohoku region,KantoSpread to.This propagation route is called the Hokkaido route, and along with the southwest route, it became the main transmission route to Japan.[30].

Second World WarLater, there were increasing cases where hybrid varieties produced by seedling raising companies and agricultural experimental stations by ordering seedlings from all over the world were widely introduced, and such introduction routes are called free routes.[30].. The "Golden Cross Bantam" developed in 1950 was the first example.

Most of the foods eaten in Japan are sweet varieties, but in the world, processed varieties of dent corn (dent corn) are cultivated more often.[1].

Global corn production was about 2009 million tonnes in 8, of whichThe United States of AmericaProduces more than 3 million tons and accounts for about 3000%, the largest in the worldCountry of originIt has become.The United States is also the world's largest exporter, with a market share of over 6%.For this reason, the world's inventory and prices are affected by the weather in major production areas in the United States.Futures tradingIt is also the target of.In recent years, to be resistant to pestsgene recombinationThe varieties that have been used are spreading.Corn is a strong hybrid, and the development of hybrid varieties using this has led to a rapid increase in yield, but since it is a FXNUMX hybrid, growers cannot prepare seeds for the next year after harvesting, and seeds are harvested from seed companies every year. Must be purchased.This allowed seed companies to make huge profits every year, which triggered the agribusiness to grow huge.[32].

In the middle of the 20th century, increased yields from improved hybrid varieties spread from developed to developing countries.So-calledGreen revolutionIs.This further increased corn production, but the development of new varieties was centered on feed corn, and not so much on the main food corn used as a grain.For this reason, corn productivity has not improved significantly in Mexico and African countries, which eat corn as their staple food.[33].. In the 21st century, it will spread to the inhabitants of underdeveloped countries as the yield increases.Vitamin A,NiacinHybrid varieties have been developed to meet the shortage, and attempts are being made to introduce them to Nigeria and other countries.[34].

Japan depends on imports for most of its corn.Ministry of Agriculture,Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications,Ministry of FinanceIn statistical classification such as cornCerealsMost of them are processed as feed, and some of them are processed as starch and fat raw materials.The amount is about 1600 million tons per year, which is JapanRiceIt is about twice the annual production of.Japan is the world's largest importer of corn, and 2% of its imports depend on the United States.In addition, 9% of the consumption in Japan is used for livestock feed."Blue-cut corn (corn), which is a roughage for feedsilage) ”,“ Corn that uses grains, etc. ”, which is a concentrated feed, is produced by domestic dairy farmers.[35]The annual yield is about 450-500 million tons, but most of them are self-consumed and not "distributed", so the self-sufficiency rate is statistically 0.0%.

On the other hand, sweet varieties harvested in an immature state, which are generally retailed and consumed at home and restaurants, are statistically called "sweet corn".VegetablesIt is classified as (vegetables).Imports of fresh sweet corn are in the 25t range, while annual domestic production is 30-10t.[36], Almost all of the raw edible sweet corn sold in stores is domestically produced.However, in addition to this, there are about 9 to 10 tons of imported frozen and prepared sweet corn.[37]..The gross domestic product of sweet corn in 22 was 23 tons, and by prefecture, Hokkaido had the highest production of 4700 tons, accounting for about 10% of the total domestic production.The next largest production isChiba1t,Ibaraki1t,Gunma1t,NaganoIt is in the order of 9400t[38]..What is produced domesticallycanningSome are edible as they are.

Imported genetically modified corn is a vegetable oil contained in foods generally marketed in supermarkets, etc.High fructose corn syrup,alcohol,spices, Starch,fructoseIt is distributed in Japan as a raw material such as (In Japan, only 8 kinds of agricultural products such as corn and 33 kinds of processed foods made from this are subject to labeling obligations, and labeling obligations on the above mentioned items. Not[39]).Commercial cultivation of genetically modified crops has not yet begun in Japan[39].


In 2007, the world consumption of corn was the highest at 64% for livestock feed, followed by industrial use such as cornstarch production at 32%, and direct consumption was only 4%.[40]..As shown in the figure above, the consumption of corn as a direct food is highly uneven depending on the country.Many countries, such as the United States and China, are large producers but do not use them for food.The most edible consumption is made from corntortillaMexico, Pap, Saza andUgaliIt is a region from eastern Africa to the southern part of Africa where foods made from corn flour are the staple food (see the figure on the right).

As mentioned above, since the varieties of main food corn and feed / industrial corn are different, it cannot be said that it is generally possible to reduce the consumption of feed corn and divert it to main food (main food is for feed). Can be diverted to industrial use).OnceKenyaLargedroughtWhen the situation occurred, the United States provided food assistance for corn flour, but the Kenyan government provided assistance because the flour was not edible white corn that was used as Ugali in Kenya, but yellow corn that was not used for food in Kenya. I once went back to America[41].

In recent years, corn is used as a raw material in the United States, which is the largest producer.Biomass ethanolDemand for corn increased rapidly, and demand for corn for ethanol surged from 1998 million tons in 1300 to 2007 million tons in 8100.[42]..This expanded the demand for corn, but on the other hand, the production could not keep up with it, and the price soared because it was in a form of competing with the demand for food and feed so far.2007-2008 World Food Price CrisisThere is also a theory that it became one of the causes that caused[43].


Corn fruits are edible and the nutritional content isStarch qualityThere are many,Vitamin B1-B2,potassium,protein,Dietary fiberEtc. are included, as other active ingredientsXanthophyll,MelatoninIs included[19]..The exodermis of corn has a lot of water-soluble dietary fiber, and it is in the intestine.cholesterolKeeps blood vessels young and drains them out of the body.ArteriosclerosisHelp prevent[19]..In addition, the yellow pigment of corn is derived from xanthophyll and has the effect of keeping blood vessels soft.Corn whiskers are called Nanban hair and have long been associated with acute nephritis.SwellingIs used to take[48].

Since ancient timeswheat,MilletWhen corn was introduced into Europe, Asia, Africa, etc., where corn was milled and used, it was also milled and cooked.Things that are kneaded and baked with water like in the United States,イタリア OfPolenta,Eastern Europe OfMamariga,East Africa OfUgali,NshimaPut it in boiling water and knead it while boiling.PorridgeAnd solids,ChugokuLike the wort ()Steamed breadThere is something to make into a shape.

In modern Japan, such use as a staple food is not very familiar,High economic growthPreviouslyYamanashiFuji Hokuroku region, etc.[50]In cold regions and mountainous regions where the yield of rice is low, the ripe grains of hard-grained corn are either raw or coarsely ground and boiled to make porridge or milled with a stone mill.OyakiThere were not a few areas that were used, such as by making.

Immature ears are used as vegetables by baking or boiling.Sweet varieties are often used for these purposes.Baby corn (young corn) is a little special as a vegetable.This is a young and boiled second ear of a sweet edible variety, which is used in salads and stewed dishes.As a more special thing, in MexicoUstilaginomycotaA type of fungus (Ustilago maydis) Infected ears are called "Huitlacoche" and are edible, making them high-class foodstuffs.
