    If babycorn is on the superfree list why isn't regular sweetcorn?!
    I could make up my 1/3 superfree on every meal with just those lovely golden kernels! Lol!

    Because Sweetcorn is high in starch, whilst baby sweetcorn isn't!

    In part, because 100g of tinned sweetcorn has around 110 calories, while 100g of baby corn has around 25 calories.

    The baby sweetcorn will also fill you up more because it's more fibrous.
