To Your Good Health® ~ Bob Moore
Our Creamy White Corn Grits Hot Cereal is made from high-quality dried corn that has been ground to produce coarse grits that will absorb water, broth or milk to become creamy and delicious—just like the grits you’ll find in South Carolina.
Native Americans offered the first settlers bowls of Rockahominie, a dish consisting of ground up corn grain cooked to creamy texture. It is believed this corn mixture kept many of the settlers alive during those cold winters.
Grits may be eaten covered in gravy, cheese or butter and salt; or served with seafood, meats or vegetables. They also make a delightful breakfast when served as a hot cereal.
While these aren’t instant grits, they cook up in just five minutes. Following a gluten free diet? Explore our Gluten

Corn is perhaps the most traditional American foods: domesticated thousands of years ago, it's been a cultural and nutritional mainstay ever since. At Bob's Red Mill, we use only the finest-quality white corn to create our Southern-style corn grits. Their rich flavor and incredible texture make it ideal for porridge, polenta and any number of entrees. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
To your good health,
