What about clear (non-pigmented) kernels?

I not sure what you mean by (non-pigmented).

One variety we are working with has a number of flint-type kernels that are translucent or clear (absent color) down to the germ. Would this trait be considered synonymous with "white" corn? What desirable traits might these kernels yield?
