Why Does Corn Come out Whole in Our Poop

corn in poop

Admit it. You’ve all looked at corn in poop and wondered it yourself. Why does corn come out whole in our poop? Isn’t the body supposed to digest its food and not send it through unprocessed? Well the explanation is a fascinating, entertaining and a little disturbing and a tad bit disgusting.

Well, I know it’s something that I’ve seen myself, and I can guarantee that anyone else who eats corn has seen as well. The day after a nice and satisfying meal you head off to the outhouse for a brief visit. You do your business and stare in wonder at the yellow lumps of corn disbursed throughout your droppings. That’s right, there are fully formed corn in poop. How could this be? You chewed your food and you know the rest of your food was digested. Plus it surely didn’t feel like you were pushing out little hard lumps of corn. But there’s a very good reason for it. You weren’t pushing out little hard lumps and your body did exactly what it was supposed to do.
