Is corn meal generally safe? What brand does everyone use. I haven't bought any for about 7 months and I am really missing it.

I get my corn meal & grits & masa harina from nuts.com. They have a good certified gluten-free selection of foods. Shipping is pricey, but fast.

You'd think so but many are not. Read the label on a lot of "name brand" corn meal and it will not be safe (wheat). I have found that store brands often are just fine. So that's what I buy.

Thanks everyone.

I bought a store brand and it seems to be fine.
I'll have to check out Nuts.com more. I see they deliver to Canada now.

Wait until you see all the certified gluten-free goodies they have :)
They took it seriously when someone they know was DXed.

Hubs loves their medjool dates! Delicious diced dried fruits for granola bars. They also have veggies chips and gogi power bars.
The nuts are so jumbo and fresh! For a real treat, chocolate covered raisins.(they also have candies--like M&Ms, nonpareils and those chewy things, gummies?) The teff and coconut flours are ground fine for baking and are in resealable bags. The selection is huge. Okay, I'll stop now.....Obviously, I like their products! and they always include a "free treat". Customer service is top-notch. okay, really done now.

(but I am not a paid spokesperson, honest. :lol: if only! )

The main key to cornmeal is that the self rising kind will always have wheat flour. Look for pure corn meal... Martha White has a good one.
