What makes it waxy?

The starch content of the kernels is what separates waxy from regular yellow dent field corn.  This is not a difference that can be seen by just looking at a corn field.  Normal corn kernels consist of 75% amylopectin and 25% amylose while waxy varieties are nearly 100% amylopectin.  The amylopection content makes waxy suitable for a number of uses for both food and other industries.  After the wet milling process the resulting starch is used as a thickener and stabilizer in many food products.  Waxy also makes good adhesives.  Cardboard boxes may contain glue made from waxy corn.  The sticky backing on envelopes is another adhesive product.
