Hi-Lysine Whole Grain Corn Meal
A Midwestern seed company has begun marketing corn meal made entirely from a hi-lysine corn variety with no preservatives - or anything else - added to it. After sending out 50,000 sample packets to the readers of a national magazine in a special promotion, the company feels the future is strong for this latest new use for corn.
Crow's Hybrid Corn Company, Milford, Ill., is a partner in the venture headed up by Kennard J. Kling, president. "In recent years researchers have found that lysine has many beneficial effects when used in the human diet due to the high levels of the essential amino acids, lysine and tryptophan. Consumers are looking for this type of health food as well as the whole grain fiber that we can provide with hi-lysine corn meal," says Kling noting that hi-lysine corn meal has a much different taste and texture than regular corn meal. "Most people say they've never experienced such good corn taste. Also, the texture is smoother, and closer to whole wheat flour than conventional corn meal."
Hi-lysine corn, which was discovered at Purdue University in 1963, has been used for years as a top quality grain for livestock feed.
For a 1 1/2 lb. sample package of the new corn meal, which is being marketed throughout the country, send $3.00 to: FARM SHOW Followup, Kennard Kling, KWC International Corp., 3806 N. Vermilion, Danville, Ill. 61832.
