I used Green Giant organic sweetcorn in this recipe which is salt free. It is EU certified organic and also carries the seal of approval from the Soil Association. Since it is ready steam cooked it is ready to serve and eat. Being an organic product you have the peace of mind that it is pesticide free. Green Giant also guarantees that their corn is without GMO and is inside a 100% recyclable container.
