Canned Corn

We wanted canned corn with a vibrant, fresh corn taste.

UpdateMay 2020
Our favorite canned corn, Libby's Organic Whole Kernel Sweet Corn, has been discontinued. In its place, we now recommend Del Monte Fresh Cut Golden Sweet Whole Kernel Corn.

What You Need To Know

We usually substitute frozen corn for fresh, but if you plan to puree corn into velvety smoothness, canned corn is a better choice because the softer kernels break down more readily. We chose five nationally available brands, tasting them plain and in chowder. Manufacturers add water, salt, and sometimes sugar to canned corn, but our top two brands had no added sugar—the sweetness came from the corn itself.
