No way I could put butter on corn (or anything else) w/o getting painfully sick. Otherwise, the grain doesn't bother me. / Old Hat

This may be a bit esoteric but for the gardeners among us   the variety of sweet corn does make a difference as to its effect on our impaired colons.  Having grown sweet corn for many years I, some years ago, found a variety that is both incredibly good and easy on the gut.  The variety is called Bodacious it’s a light yellow sugar enhanced variety. I get seed from Territorial Seed Company but other companies carry it. It has a very light husk which I believe minimizes the abrasive characteristics of the corn. Most sweet corn is not marketed by variety so unless you grow it you probably cant find it plus I doubt it is available commercially but perhaps at farmers markets. Any way, I couldn’t pass up responding to a thread on sweet corn truly one of the great pleasures of summer.

Peaches and cream is the variety that most farmers grow in my area. Man it is good!

I eat corn ALL THE TIME. It is definitely my favorite veggie, and I don't seem to have any problems digesting it. If my husband is traveling for work, and I am on my own for dinner, I have been known to just open up a can or pop a couple of ears in boiling water and eat only that for dinner. Seriously, I can't get enough of it!

Iowa / Illinois... I am sure there are others.... nothing like getting it farm fresh. The farmers will tell you for best taste to cook within hours of harvest... not always possible, but worth it!

Picked some up from a local Iowa farmer tonight and it was delicious! They just picked it this morning so it was nice and fresh.

Peaches and cream sounds awesome....up north the corn season was our favorite time of the year and we especially loved the white silver queen variety. After work on the way home we could stop and buy it hours after it was picked fresh and steam it for 5 minutes and it would just "pop" off that cob. Oh how I miss that!!!

Here in Florida it is so hit and miss -- we have had some good corn in the past few months but for the most part it is just ok. We don't over indulge in it because it is so undependable...probably a good thing or we would eat too much of it.

He seems to tolerate it ok which surprised me.

Butyric acid is lacking in people with Uc (and maybe crohns?) and butyric enema's have proved effective for some people. I was pleased to find out that butter contains 3% of the stuff. now I eat as much as I can!
 
There seems to be quite a lot of evidence for short chain fatty acid's helping IBD.

"Peaches & cream" usually comes on the market here in August (SE New York State). It's also called "bicolor corn" locally. Just needs a couple minutes in boiling water before eating, blanching moreso than cooking. / Old Hat
