White and yellow corn has the same origin and composition. They originate from Central America (Mexico), and were transferred to Europe after the discovery of America. Thanks to its yield, low production costs and the usage possibilities, corn rapidly expanded and become one of the leading crops in the world, behind wheat and rice. Today, several types of corn are grown, but ZUBAN has the far greatest importance. It is important that corn can be processed and used in different ways, as a result, markets today have hundreds of different products, from a simple grits to vitamin C and textiles.
The simplest way of processing corn is dry milling, which provides flour and other products such as brewer’s grits, corn meal, corn germ and other products.
