Corn meal is ground from dried maize (corn). It is a common staple food in many regions of the world.
Steel ground yellow cornmeal, common in modern times, has the husk and germ of the kernel almost completely removed. It is conserved almost indefinitely if stored in an airtight container in a cool dry place.
Stone ground corn meal retains some of the hull and germ, lending a more flavor and nutrition to recipes. It is more perishable, but will store longer if refrigerated.
1 cup of dry stone ground corn meal has 435 calories.
