Organic Corn Grits cook quickly and make a rich and delicious porridge for breakfast, lunch or dinner. This freshly milled organic corn meal is also the indispensable ingredient for classic Italian polenta.


Bob's Red Mill Organic Polenta Corn Grits are made using only the finest golden corn for a rich flavor that is sure to please your palate, any meal of the day. Native Americans offered the first settlers in the US bowls of Rockahominie, a dish consisting of ground up corn grain cooked into a creamy mixture. It is believed this corn mixture kept many of the settlers alive during those cold winters. Today, corn grits hold a prominent place in soul food and southern dishes. They are also used as a side or a pairing with dishes containing very heavily spiced ingredients. Grits may be eaten covered in gravy, cheese or butter and salt; or served with seafood, meats or vegetables. Grits also make a delightful breakfast when served as a hot cereal topped with milk and honey or brown sugar. Grits are a great way to help meet your body's daily energy needs. The fiber content in grits helps you feel full for longer periods of time and promotes regular digestive functioning. Polenta is a dish that has been popular in Italian and other European cuisine, and is now gaining fans in America as well. It is made from coarse ground corn (grits), boiled in water to create a porridge. This can be topped and served immediately for a warm corn side dish. Alternatively, you can spread the porridge in a pan and refrigerate it until it sets. Then the polenta can be cut into squares and baked, grilled or fried. Similar to pasta, cooked polenta is delicious topped with marinara sauce, shredded cheese, or grilled or roasted vegetables. Many gourmet Italian and Mediterranean restaurants feature our polenta. The recipes on our packages are simple and delicious.

10 Reviews For "Organic Corn Grits Polenta"

  1. Makes hearty cornbread, too!

    by Tek the Mando on 08 Tue,2016


    Not only do I make delicious grits and fried cornmeal mush (with butter and maple syrup - that's some good eatin'!) with this, I also use it to make a hearty cornbread. The texture is just a bit coarser than the typical brands of cornmeal at the grocery store. Try it! It definitely makes a difference.

  2. Perfect for Shrimp and Grits

    by HL on 03 Tue,2016


    These are fantastic for shrimp and grits. I prepared them as instructed with a little heavy cream and shredded cheddar, and then topped the grits with shrimp cooked with spicy cajun seasonings, spicy italian sausage, parsley, onions, and tomatoes with some lemon juice. Will make again, many times!

  3. Great product!

    by WD on 01 Sun,2016


    I'm also from the South and was raised eating grits. I use milk instead of water to make them and then top them with fresh butter. Another favorite way to make them is with chopped onions sautéed in butter and grated cheddar cheese .

  4. Organic and non-gmo

    by Saniel on 12 Tue,2015


    I make it my mission to find these organic grits because they are made from non-gmo corn. That is important to me and my family. I like it savory with little bit of coconut oil, nutritional yeast, salt, white pepper while hubby and son enjoy them sweet cinnamon &coconut sugar. Any way you have them it's good.

  5. Thank you Bob's Red Mill!

    by Sunshine on 07 Fri,2015


    I love GRITS! I am from the South and was raised eating Grits. The Organic Polenta Corn Grits are AWESOME! I am a customer forever! Much better than King Arthur Flour products, hands down!

  6. Recipe

    by Greener on 06 Wed,2015


    1/2 diced onion, 1/2 cup sausage broken into bits, 2 tbs butter,
    1/2 cup cream, for 1 cup of yellow polenta grits. 2 soft boiled eggs over the grits in a bowl. To die for.

  7. Corn is gluten free

    by @WildwoodKenya on 12 Sun,2013

    Someone said this isn't gluten free. The only ingredient is organic corn. It's manufactured in the same lab as gluten items so they can't label it gluten free. I'm pretty sure you'll be ok unless you have a lethal contact allergy to trace amounts of gluten that probably don't even get into this item.

  8. Delicious Texture

    by Karen on 12 Thu,2010

    When I make polenta with these corn grits, the texture is divine. I use 4 cups low sodium chicken or turkey stock, 2 tsp. cumin, 1 tsp. salt, and a dash of pepper. Bring this to a boil, slowly add 1 cup of corn grits and whisk for about 6 minutes on medium high until thickened and creamy. I then whisk in 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter and 1/2 cup milk.||I serve about 1/2 cup of this in a bowl with chili,

  9. Best with chicken cacciatore

    by DJ on 11 Mon,2010

    I've been making chicken cacciatore over polenta for many years. I was out of polenta and yours was the only one in the store, so I bought it. I will never buy any other polenta. It took my dish to new heights and that's saying a lot!

  10. Best for shrimp and grits

    by Pho on 09 Wed,2010

    I won't use anything else to make my shrimp and grits- these are perfect when you cook them up with a little milk, bacon, and shallots, then fold in the cheese, before sauteeing your shrimp in sherry and bacon juice and topping it off.||These corn grits are the perfect and superior product and I drive farther to get them in order to have the perfect dish.
