Abstract

Corn (Zea mays L.) is an important feed, food and industrial raw material. Given the growing importance of bioethanol as a product from corn, considerable changes in its utilisation have occurred recently. Thus, a new industry is being built on corn. This chapter deals with the composition of the corn kernel, its quality features and the factors affecting the quality of this plant. The main methods used in assessing quality are described in relation to the suitability of corn for processing.
