Holy Whole-Grain Corn Nutrition

Cornmeal of whole-grain varieties, such as 'Floriani Red Flint,' is much more nutritious than de-germed yellow cornmeal (the type typically sold in supermarkets because of its long shelf life). Our testing shows that Floriani is an especially good source of fiber, protein and minerals. Based on a 1 cup serving.
