Can humans safely eat animal feed corn when cooked and prepared properly?
I was given about 100 pounds of cleaned, whole kernel, animal feed corn as a gift from someone who hunts on my property. It came from the local farm store and was quite inexpensive. I was reading the label (Protein 6.5% min, Crude Fat 2.5% min, Crude Fiber 3.0% max) and it occurred to me that this could be an excellent source of human food. Am I missing something?
How would you prepare a side dish of this corn? Wash and boil it? Put it in a rice cooker? Cook on stove?
The particular bags were made by Cargill Animal Nutrition. I can’t find anything that mentions problems with humans eating animal feed corn.
I am willing to try it if someone has a cooking or preparation suggestion.
