Mentioned in:

Flaked maize (corn) is an adjunct used to raise the alcohol level of beer while adding very little colour or flavour (only a slight corn sweetness when used in abundance).

Produced from yellow corn that has had the germ, oil and most of the protein removed. Since the corn is de-germed, most of the oil is removed. This can cause lack of foam which is characteristic of high adjunct beers.

Along with rice, corn is very common in light bodied macro commercial beers some of which may use up to 40%.

Flaked maize does not need to be milled as it has already been rolled flat. Add it to the mash as is.
