Semolina Is A Grain?
Posted 08 March 2012 - 11:36 PM
The one woman then asked me what was wrong with semolina? And I said it was wheat! She laughed and told me that no, it was a grain. The semolina grain! The second woman who is also Italian agreed and said that it was a grain. They acted like I was stupid.
So as soon as I got home, I looked it up. Turns out it is what they calld the middlin's (not entirely sure what that is) of a grain and that grain is usually wheat but it can also be made of corn, rice or other grains.
So I guess I am not the stupid one after all.

Semolina is wheat--a grain product. Definitely not safe for those of us with celiac disease.
Semolina is a rough grind of a cereal grain with the bran removed.
In the wider world, coarse ground meal from grains other than Durum or wheat is also referred to as semolina, e.g. barley semolina, rice semolina, or corn semolina .. Barley is still no good, but the other two are gluten-free.
