Delicious cooked cornmeal with Italian roots. 

Polenta is simply cooked cornmeal (dried, ground corn) in water and salt. It’s traditionally consumed in a porridge or oatmeal-like format, making it very versatile. There are three varieties to choose from: blue, yellow or white; yellow and white tend to be the most popular!

Health Benefits of Polenta: 

The key to ensuring you’re benefiting from polenta’s health benefits is to make sure you’re choosing whole-grain cornmeal. This just ensures the germ of the corn kernel is still intact! When included, the germ provides fiber, vitamins, and minerals, particularly B vitamins.
