Stone-Ground Grits is made by grinding either white or yellow whole Corn kernels between cool stones to form a roughly ground meal. The important difference between Stone-Ground Grits and other forms of Grits lies in the Corn kernel.  Stone-Ground Grits contains the whole kernel, including the Germ of the corn kernel, which are full of vitamins and oil.  In all other versions of Grits the Germ has been removed (hence, they are Degerminated).  Because Stone-Ground Grits uses the whole kernel, it also has the best flavor, texture and nutrition.  It’s worth the extra effort to find (often only through mail-order).
