How long does it take to digest corn?

When corn passes through the digestive tract it often comes out in what appears to be its fully intact state. Although corn in stool may look whole, the body has removed the nutrients from it, reports Science Focus. The inside of corn is made up of starch, which is easily digested by the body. The outside is a layer of cellulose, which, unless chewed very thoroughly, is not easily digested. Source: colonhydrotherapyaz.com
