So, what is degerminated yellow corn meal?

Degerminated yellow corn meal is a versatile, fine-textured flour-like ingredient made from ground maize grains that have had the germ removed. This process helps to extend its shelf life and produces a smoother, more consistent texture for baked goods and other recipes. The vibrant yellow color of this cornmeal adds visual appeal to dishes like cornbread, tortillas, and breading coatings. It also has a slightly sweet, nutty flavor with a subtle corn taste that enhances the overall taste of recipes. Degerminated yellow corn meal is naturally gluten-free and a good source of fiber, protein, and essential vitamins and minerals.
