De la Estancia Organic Polenta Corn Meal Description

All de la Estancia organic polenta is produced by the four families that own Buenaventura Farms, an Argentine farming company. The variety of corn that we use to make our polenta is very different from the corn grown in other parts of the world. Our growing season is longer than in the northern hemisphere and our sub-tropical corn is specially suited for polenta. Argentine corn is higher in protein content and much lower in starch content than common corn and can be milled to a finer consistency. Any recipe you make using de la Estancia polenta will be smooth and creamy.

The words de la Estancia is Spanish meaning "from the farm" and de la Estancia organic polenta is truly from the farmer to the final consumer. There are no middlemen. All the polenta in this bag originated on one single farm. We can trace the polenta in every bag back to the moment when the corn seeds were planted. de la Estancia polenta is not pre-cooked and is not processed but because of its low starch content and fine grind it cooks naturally in just 1 minute!

What is polenta? Polenta is a word used in Italy and Latin America to mean a form of ground corn as well as a cooked dish made from the ground corn. Traditional polenta is made by adding dry polenta to simmering liquid, usually in the ratio of 3 parts liquid to 1 part polenta and stirring on the heat until the polenta reaches a consistency like thick porridge. A variety of liquids work equally well as a base, including water, chicken broth, milk, beef broth and vegetable broth. Polenta makes an excellent main meal or side dish. It absorbs sauces and juices especially well and is a substitute for pasta, cous cous and rice. Italians serve it straight from the pot with any pasta sauce they would serve with pasta. It can also be cooled to form a soft cake that can then be fried, baked or broiled.

Excellent bright gold, fine milled polenta delicious, vibrant, easy to prepare - love it! March 8, 2013
A disappointment Corn meal, yes. Polenta? Absolutely not. I bought it because it said polenta - which I love as a dish in itself or chilled and set for fried polenta with maple syrup for breakfast. This is an extra fine ground cornmeal. It just doesn't work. Maybe for cornbread - I don't know because I don't make cornbread. Oh - taste - it doesn't have any. November 29, 2012
Great polenta! We have been purchasing and cooking this polenta for years now. It is the best we have found and one of the few organic polentas available. Be aware that the only way to ensure you are not eating Genetically Modified (GM) corn is to purchase organic. By law, organic cannot be genetically modified. Otherwise, you have a high chance of eating genetically modified food that has been show to injure the health of animals in research. Don't be a guinea pig. August 23, 2012
La Estancia Polenta I was skeptical about polenta that cooks in 3 min. that is not pre-cooked. I am Northern Italian & have been eating polenta for 50 years. I prefer coarse ground polenta,: however, that takes 45 min. This polenta has excellent taste as I cook for longer than suggested time to form Cake style with spetzzatino (gravy). I definitely would reccomend this product> November 4, 2011
Great polenta This is the easiest and lightest polenta. It cooks in 3 minutes and has a nice texture. I make it with broth instead of water and top it with veggies for a great side dish. November 30, 2010
