So, what is degermed yellow corn meal?

Degermed yellow corn meal is a versatile ingredient commonly used in a variety of recipes, including baked goods, casseroles, and coating for fried foods. It is made by removing the germ and bran from the kernel of yellow corn, resulting in a finer texture and longer shelf life. This process also removes most of the nutritional value, making it a less healthy option than whole grain cornmeal. Despite this, degermed yellow corn meal is still a popular choice due to its mild flavor and ability to add texture to dishes.
