Sweet Corn - Milho
Some sweet corn have different colors on the same ear HA MILHO QUE TEM CORES DIFERENTES NA MESMA ESPIGA Sweet corn (Zea mays var. rugosa, also called indian corn, sweetcorn, sugar corn, pole corn, or simply corn, is a variety of maize with a high sugar content. Sweet corn is the result of a naturally-occurring recessive mutation in the genes which control conversion of sugar to starch inside the endosperm of the corn kernel. Unlike field corn varieties, which are harvested when the kernels are dry and fully mature (dent stage), sweet corn is picked when immature (milk stage) and eaten as a vegetable, rather than a grain. Since the process of maturation involves converting sugar into starch, sweet corn stores poorly and must be eaten fresh, canned, or frozen before the kernels become tough and starchy. History Sweet corn occurs as a spontaneous mutation in field corn and was grown by several Native American tribes. The Iroquois gave the first recorded sweet corn (called Papoon) to European settlers in 1779. It soon became a popular vegetable in southern and central regions of the United States. Open pollinated varieties of white sweet corn started to become widely available in the United States in the 19th century. Two of the most enduring varieties, still available today, are Country Gentleman (a Shoepeg corn with small, white kernels in irregular rows) and Stowell's Evergreen. Sweet corn production in the 20th century was influenced by the following key developments: * hybridization allowed for more uniform maturity, improved quality and disease resistance * identification of the separate gene mutations responsible for sweetness in corn and the ability to breed varieties based on these characteristics: o su (normal sugary) o se (sugary enhanced, originally called Everlasting Heritage) o sh2 (shrunken-2) There are currently hundreds of varieties, with more constantly being developed. Health benefits Cooked sweet corn has significant antioxidant activity, which can substantially reduce the chance of heart disease and cancer."There is a notion that processed fruits and vegetables have a lower nutritional value than fresh produce. Those original notions seem to be false, as cooked sweet corn retains its antioxidant activity, despite the loss of vitamin C," says Rui Hai Liu assistant professor of food science at Cornell University. The scientists measured the antioxidants' ability to quench free radicals, which cause damage to the body from oxidation. Cooked sweet corn also releases increased levels of ferulic acid, which provides health benefits, such as battling cancer. "When you cook it, you release it, and what you are losing in vitamin C, you are gaining in ferulic acid and total antioxidant activity.Stacks
On the Queen Mary From a sign near the smokestacks: "Among the notable features that have made the Queen Mary famous are her three enormous funnels, or smokestacks, painted in 'Cunard Red' and topped and trimmed in black. The funnels are essentially decorative covers disguising the tangle of vents, pipes and filters that discharged the smoke, soot, fumes and unused steam from five boiler rooms, seven decks below. The funnels are elliptical in shape, measuring 36 feet long by 23 feet wide. They are graduated in size to allow the smoke flow away without obstruction, thereby preventing soot from falling on the passengers' deck spaces. The forward, or #1 funnel is 70.5 feet tall, the #2 funnel is 67.5 feet tall and the #3 funnel is 62.25 feet tall. The present funnels are replacements in stainless steel and are welded, whereas the originals were riveted. The originals were dismantled to facilitate the removal of machinery during her conversion and were found to be in poor condition for reuse. The distinctive color 'Cunard Red,' has been in use since the company was founded in 1840. It was originally achieved through a combination of buttermilk and ochre coloring that 'cooked' onto the hot stacks which rose a short distance from the boilers. Commercial paints that were available at the time were not manufactured to resist heat and would blister and flake off the hot funnels."
