In Italian cuisine, corn flour is used in polenta recipes. There are many variations and interpretations of this preparation.
Yellow corn flour can also be found as a basic ingredient in other traditional dishes from different parts of the world: the American cornbread, the Brazilian bolo de fuba or the Mexican tortilla.
An unquestionable specialty of northern Italy, the so-called traditional polenta differs from the instant version by its exceptional taste, aromas and consistency. Its qualities are conferred by the milling method used.
Stone grinding is the oldest and still the best method for producing flours and semolina. It preserves the nutrients contained in the germ and bran of the cereal, which gives the product a superior nutritional quality.
Thanks to this method, the semolina is very tasty, rich and digestible.
