The flour corn (Zea mays var. amylacea) variety has a soft starchy endosperm and a thin pericarp. It is primarily used in the production of maize flour. This kind, which is regularly discovered in Aztec and Inca cemeteries, is widely grown in arid regions of the United States, western South America, and South Africa. Chicha is made from large-seeded corns from Peru. They are known as bread mealies in South Africa.
