      No, Ma’am! Corn is considered a grain. Most people believe that it is a vegetable however. It’s a common misconception.

        So grain meaning instead of rice and bread etc?

      2. Brenda Sue says:

        It’s considered a cereal grain or true grain in the same class as barley, oats, rice and wheat. Bread can be made from any number of ingredients. that may or may not be grains.
