Corn meal is a popular dry corn product because of its long shelf life. It is used to produce an assortment of chemically leavened breads and fried products like corn bread and muffins. Our corn meal is a product of the newer style of milling which is done by huge steel rollers that remove the husk and germ almost completely. The product can be stored almost indefinitely in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. Cornmeal is either yellow, white or blue, depending on the type of corn used. Yellow cornmeal has slightly more vitamin A than white. Blue cornmeal is usually available only in specialty markets or the gourmet section of some supermarkets. However, there are an increasing number of blue-corn products available such as blue-cornmeal flakes and chips.
