What part of the plant does corn come from?
any part of a cow,the name corned beef,gets its name from small salt-packets that are used to preserve the meat called corns,hence corned beef.
Corned beef is made from the brisket of the cow. Brisket is a beef cut taken from the breast section beneath the first five ribs, behind the foreshank (upper portion of the fr…ont leg).

the kernels of the corn are flattened and baked in a oven
Corn oil comes from the corn kernels themselves.
Most corn plants have a single stem, called a stalk, which growsvertically upward from the ground. The height of the stalk dependsboth on the variety of the corn and the envir…onment in which a cornplant is grown. As the stalk grows, leaves emerge. A typical cornplant grown by a farmer in the central United States will have astalk that is 7 to 10 feet tall and has 16 to 22 leaves. The lowerpart of each leaf wraps around the stalk and is attached to thestalk at a juncture called a node. Typically the lowest four nodesare below ground. Roots develop from each of these nodes.Sometimes, roots develop from the first aboveground node, and theseare known as brace roots. Some varieties of corn in certainenvironments produce secondary stalks, known as tillers, which growoutward from near the base of the main stalk. Every corn plant hasboth male and female parts. The male part, which is known as thetassel, emerges from the top of the plant after all the leaves haveemerged. The tassel usually consists of several branches, alongwhich many small male flowers are situated. Each male flowerreleases a large number of pollen grains, each of which containsthe male sex cell. The female floral organ is called an ear. The ear develops at thetip of a shank, which is a small, stalk-like structure that growsout from a leaf node located approximately midway between theground and the tassel. Occasionally, a plant will produce an ear atseveral consecutive nodes, but the one that is located uppermost onthe stalk becomes the largest ear. The immature ear consists of acob, eggs that develop into kernels after pollination, and silks.The cob is a cylindrical structure upon which kernel developmentoccurs. The kernels are arranged on the cob in pairs of rows. Fromeach egg, a hair-like structure called a silk grows and eventuallyemerges from the tip of the husk, which is a group of leavesattached to the shank that encloses the entire ear. Pollinationoccurs when pollen falls on the exposed silks. Followingpollination, a male sex cell grows down each silk to a single eggand fertilization (the union of the male and female sex cells)occurs. The fertilized egg develops into a kernel and inside eachkernel is a single embryo (a new plant). A vigorous corn plant mayhave 500 to 1000 kernels on a single ear.
Humans eat the kernels of the corn. The kernels are actually the seeds...
Corn is what the entire plant is called. What you're probably thinking about is the part we eat. This is theseed, know in corn plants as the kernel (pronounced as it isspelle…d), and is located on the stem of the plant on what is calledthe ear. The ear of corn is surrounded by a husk (really fibrousleaves) that protect it as it is growing. The cob is the part ofthe ear which is left behind when the kernels are removed. The topmost part of the corn plant is the tassel or the male partof the flower. That's where the pollen forms. Corn relies on windto carry the pollen from the tassel to the ear which is the femalepart of the flower. Because the two parts do not normally mature atthe same time, self-pollination does not happen.

The female flower styles & stigma. The silk is the stringy fibers on the inside of the corn husk that stick out of the top to catch pollen. Corn silk is also used as a diuret…ic in herbal medicine.
