Plain grits would be gluten-free--they are just ground corn. Sometimes things are added, but even then I doubt that anything gluten-derived would be present.

I have to say, I'm from the south. Read the label carefully. A number of the national grits brands on our shelves down here have the disclaimer in fine print - contains wheat. Hate when I see that. Why is it necessary to prostitute a great thing like grits with the evil wheat???

Anyway, good grits are made from corn, and that should be the only ingredient.

I buy Quaker grits. The ingredients are:
"white hominy grits made from corn, niacin, reduced iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid."

That's it. And apparently those ingredients after corn are all B vitamins, except for the iron obviously.

Very yummy. With butter. With cheese. With eggs and sausage. yummmmmmmmmmm (and I'm a northern gal by birth...but I have been living in Virginia for awhile now. lol)
