An American Native Returns from Italy

Available in Medium or Fine

Polenta, the national staple of Italy, is a great way to enjoy the one-of-a-kind flavor of Ohio-grown Organic Wapsie Valley Corn. When corn reached Italy in the 1600s, from “The New World”, it quickly became the food all peasants subsisted on for centuries (see the film, The House of Wooden Clogs!). Before that, polenta, or pulmentum, was made by Roman soldiers from barley and buckwheat.

We freshly grind our Certified Organic Heirloom Polenta on a stone mill to retain its superior flavor and nutrition. Corn is also a good source of vitamin C and manganese. We never use GMO varieties, as is required to be Certified Organic.

For commercial bakers and chefs, a wide range of custom polenta is available upon request for your exact needs.
