RE: These responses are what I expected but I don't really feel like the shed light on why Corn specifically is worse than other grains.
I do not understand what you're looking for then. We've discussed that some foods take more time to digest over others. Do you not believe that? Do you need to have a chemical analysis of the amount of time it takes for non-herbivores break down different plant cells?
Are you looking for something like this;
According to the website of the Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Science, not everything you eat is digested at the same rate. For example, foods that contain high levels of cellulose, such as corn and lettuce, aren't easily digested by humans. This is because the human digestive system doesn't have the enzymes necessary to break down cellulose, which is easily digested by animals such as sheep and cows. Not only does digesting cellulose-rich food take longer, these foods are typically not fully digested. This is why you may see undigested kernels of corn in your stool after you eat corn on the cob.
