Caloric Values, Single Serving

One cup of sweet yellow corn kernels contains 125 calories.

Keep in mind that a serving size equals 1/2 cup.

For a skinny 60 calories, a dieter can enjoy a healthy serving from the Vegetable Group.

Because the kcals are so low, they can do such without guilt - as long as they don't reach for the butter or full-blown margarine which will take things in a negative rather than a positive direction.
