My apologies for beginning to lead you down the completely wrong path. I learned something here as well.
I am shocked...shocked...to find there is brewing going on here!

Flaked corn is whole grain corn that's been pre-geletinized and run through a roller.

You don't really want those preservatives in your wort.

Ingredients for flaked corn:
Corn - flaked

Ingredients for Cornflakes:
Milled Corn
Malt flavoring
High fructose corn syrup
Sodium ascorbate and ascorbic acid (vitamin C)
Pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6)
Riboflavin (vitamin B2)
Thiamin hydrochloride (vitamin B1)
Vitamin A palmitate
Folic acid
Vitamin B12
Vitamin D
Vitamin B
That all looks good to me, with the possible exception of the salt (depends how much salt it is) I will be trying it soon with an 18 oz box of Aldi's cornflakes breakfast cereal. $1.49. It's not the same as brewer's flaked corn, but it's actually pretty close. At least I think it's close...
