Why do corn flakes have so much sodium?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Generally speaking corn flakes have a lot of sodium because it helps make the cereal taste better. Sodium is a flavor enhancer that helps make the cereal taste salty and crunchy. Additionally it acts as a preservative to keep the cereal fresh for a longer period of time. In order for a product to be shelf-stable and have a longer shelf-life manufacturers typically add more sodium to their products.

The following are some of the most common reasons why corn flakes have so much sodium:

  • Flavor Enhancement - Sodium helps make the cereal taste saltier and crunchier.
  • Preservation - Sodium acts as a preservative to keep the cereal fresh for longer.
  • Shelf-Stability - Having a higher sodium content helps make the product shelf-stable and have a longer shelf-life.

In conclusion corn flakes have a lot of sodium for a variety of reasons such as flavor enhancement preservation and shelf-stability.

Is Corn Flakes good for Rabbits?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Cornflour can be used on a rabbit to stop a bleeding nail (if, for example, you accidentally cut the quick while trimming your rabbit's nails). Dab cornflour on the end of the nail and apply pressure until the bleeding stops. Styptic powder is the commercial product made for this use and is superior to cornflour because styptic powder has analgesic (pain-killing) properties.

Cornstarch (unscented baby cornstarch powder) can be used on a messy rabbit in a "dry bath" method. (Wet baths can be dangerous for rabbits and should only be attempted when absolutely necessary and under very safe conditions.) See the link below for details about the dry bath method.

Rabbits should not eat cornstarch or cornflour, as it can lead to digestive problems (and even death).

Is corn an appetizer?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

That would depend on the way the corn is presented. See, even Chicken can be an appetizer, just as it can be a main course. Usually, corn is served as an accompaint to the main meal, a side dish, so it can offer the palate a little taste. I dont think that there are many recipes out there that allow corn to be a main course, but there are many which have in it the main course as a side dish. So essentially corn Is an appetizer.
