In British English "corn" means any cereal. Maize, known in some English-speaking countries as corn, is a large grain plant domesticated by indigenous peoples in Mesoamerica in prehistoric times. The leafy stalk produces ears which contain the grain, which are seeds called kernels. Maize kernels are used in cooking as a starch.

Corn is a staple food in many cultures and is used in a variety of ways in the food industry. It can be used fresh, canned, or dried, and is often processed into different forms, such as cornmeal, cornstarch, or corn syrup.
