In a recent newsletter for functional foods and nutraceuticals, there 
is a report of a "new corn strain" described as black corn, that is 
supposed to be rich in calcium and selenium.  Supposedly, it is being 
improved in China by Huafeng Xinuan Corporation.  Is this corn really 
new, or is it black corn like Black Mexican Sweet?
