The Corn Refiners Association recently released the 2012 Corn Annual, titled "Made in America: Corn Refined Products Help U.S. Industries Thrive," explaining how many U.S. industries implement the versatility, functionality and affordability of refined corn ingredients.
The report details how many of the products produced by the corn wet milling industry, such as corn starch, syrup and oil, are easily recognized ingredients used in many common foods Americans enjoy. Additionally, the publication documents how many of these same products also play a "silent" role in industrial applications.
"This edition of the Corn Annual highlights the integral role that our member companies and their products play in the fabric of our nation," said CRA President Audrae Erickson. "We are proud of the contributions they make and their products that contribute meaningfully to the high quality of life many Americans enjoy. We are equally proud of the people who work in our industry and their commitment to quality, safety and their communities."
National Corn Growers Association Growers Services Action Team Chair Brandon Hunnicutt said the Corn Annual makes an appropriate companion piece to the NCGA's World of Corn publication.
"As NCGA serves growers by providing credible, comprehensive information about corn farming and the issues impacting farmers, CRA works diligently to give a reliable and interesting account of the incredible products made from corn through the wet milling industry," Hunnicutt said.
