"Most people do not know to difference between yellow dent corn and sweet corn."

Sweet corn would have dents in the kernels too if it was left in the field till October or November to dry out, the dents mean nothing. That being said, field corn is not the same as sweet corn which we eat, but field corn is used to make corn meal, corn oil and many other food products. Field corn can be eaten if caught very early and it would fool most people into thinking it was sweet corn.

It is not sweet corn. It is regular field corn. It is still used in foods, but not as a food you eat without processing and added to other products.

Some people call corn food I would like to see them eat it.
Most people do not know to difference between yellow dent corn and sweet corn.
Livestock eat dent corn people eat sweet corn.
Dried distillers grain a by product of ethanol makes very good livestock feed.
Some people think corn is turned into ethanol it is gone there are useful by products from corn turned into ethanol.
If you eat dent corn better had good dental insurance.

In today's production, it's not "just field corn". So many varieties are available to the producer.

But it is not sweet corn humans eat. Though at the right moment, it can be very good to eat. At least it was 30 years ago when we picked it in the field next to our house on the edge of town!!
