Not only delicious, but nutritious because…
Yellow-coloured fruits and vegetables, such as corn, contain substances called carotenoids. Eating carotenoid-rich vegetables helps reduce the risk of macular degeneration, as well as helping reduce the risk of developing cancer and heart disease.
We hope you enjoy!
