I'm working in France for a seeds company and I'm looking for 
information about red streak on kernel of corn.

I have seen difference on corn milling process between yellow kernel 
and yellow with red streak kernel.

During the process, it's more difficult to take off the pericarp of 
the kernel which have red streak. For the yellow kernel we haven't 
any problem.

If you have explication I'll be very interested.

Thanks you for information.
