Life in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont
I looked all over the internets and could not find the answer! If anybody knows, please tell us. I have learned that a macronutrient is a "nutrient required or used in relatively large quantities" (Wikipedia).

I don't know..Happy WW
Hmm, I don't know either - guess I'd be lost in the maze for good... I hope you can find out! Happy WW :)
I would guess 'fiber'. How long have you been stuck in the maze? Did you call for help using your cellphone? hehe....
Since "grains" is not an option here, I would say "Fiber".I hope you found your way out of the maize anyway... LOLHappy WW!
If I remember right, it's energy, which for the purpose of the question, probably translates to "carbohydrate". But, it also is roughage, which would be "fiber".
I am going to guess carbohydrate. That's my answer, and I'm sticking to it.
Moo...I'm wordless.Happy WW! :)
Hmm, a thinking corn maze. Is there a penalty box if you answer incorrectly?
Hmm, I'm thinking fiber?
I have no idea at all. Let us know the answer's please?
I FOUND OUT!The macronutrient is PROTEIN. We were at in-service today and one of our sped teachers is a dairy farmer. He told me. Some farmers feed corn silage because the cows will give more milk with grain and/or corn. But it is rough on the cows and they may not live as long as they would with hay and grasses. (I hope I got this right. I didn't take notes!)
Ok, now I really want to know the answer. I just tried looking it up and I found that corn is 70% starch but that it is also a good source of protein. http://www.ag.ndsu.edu/pubs/ansci/beef/as1238w.htm
Blogger is being crazy and we can't see any pictures, either on our blog or yours. So we'll have to come back tomorrow to check this out. How did you learn to use elements and what are they? Your FL furiends,
I would've thought fibre
Corn is a low fiber carbohydrate--it is actually considered a grain and not a vegetable as most people believe. It has a fairly high sugar content (which is why it is used as a sweetener). It is a mild source of protein though beans are a much better source.Thanks for stopping by--you are very encouraging.
Carb. Do I win a prize? Or do I fail for not properly understanding macronutrient?
I would have said Carbohydrates because of it's high sugar content, but if you say protein...About my WW pic - I think it's fake (have a look at the base of the rock when you enlarge it) - but I can't tell for sure...
Thanks for stopping by my site and the thought provoking quiz. I would have said carbs as well, but I haven't googled it ;)
I would have thought the answer was carbs. I do like this series Andree.
Corn is a carbohydate! (and fibre is not a separate macronutrient, it is a type of carbohydrate.)
I'm glad the others answered already... because I wouldn't have known either. This is a nice idea for WW, by the way! :)
It's carbs... unfortunately, because I love corn. I love all carbs, actually!I did my pic using Picasa and overexposing two pictures, it is that easy :)thanks for your nice comment!
corn is a carbohydrate, one I absolutely love!
I don't know the answer, but corn mazes are so fun! I am going with my son to one on a field trip soon. I love fall!
A corn maze reminds me of fall time. such fun! Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting!!! Your words were very sweet and thoughtful!
We have a corn maze here in Milford. We haven't been yet, but it sounds like fun.Happy WW!
I'd guess carbs, but it's also fiber.
Thanks for visiting me and your nice comments to Smokey.Mama Bear
OK, here is some info that I know because I used to work on corn wet-milling process equipment (don't ask, previous life!). Corn actually has all of the above, but mostly carbohydrates. I hadn't heard the term silage before, so that may refer to a specific part of the corn. The germ is high in fat and is processed into corn oil. The shell of course is fiber. And the bulk of the kernel is sugar and protein. The sugar is processed into corn syrup and corn starch and the protein is processed into gluten and used as feed for cattle (which is probably where you get your answer). Whew! I knew that information stored in my brain would come in handy one day!Thanks for sharing this jog down memory lane and visiting me.
My guess is fiber because it has a cellulose coating and we don't digest the kernels well ... so therefore it acts as fiber. LOL
Thank you for visiting and for your comments!
