Instant Grits, so-called because it takes only 1 minute to cook, is made of finely ground (commercial grind) degerminated Corn kernels. After grinding, it is pre-cooked, and then dehydrated, during which time most of its nutrition is destroyed.  Its only real value is its speed of preparation.  Its texture tends to be gluey and it has little taste.

Availability
