Livestrong, the digital intersection of food and fitness, has produced a great list of America’s most eaten foods. The survey used the website’s built-in “MyPlate” tool to gather eating data on the some 4.5 million members of the online community.

With corn season just around the CORN-er, it’s interesting to consider the United States’ role in this nearly perfect commodity.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, America is the largest producer of corn in the world and is grown on over 400,000 U.S. farms. Grown mostly in the Heartland, there is some 80 million acres of farm that is dedicated to corn in America.
