Q. What corn based products can I eat. I have diverticular disease.

I love corn tortillas, corn bread, corn dogs.
AThe dietary recommendations for people with diverticular disease of the colon are usually to add fibers-rich foods (fruits, vegetables etc.). As far as I know corn isn't especially rich in dietary fibers, so I don't know about any recommended corn-based foods, although I don't know about any recommendations to refrain from eating corn-based foods.
