Polenta is a traditional Italian food made with ground yellow maize with a mild, nutty flavour you can enjoy as a rich porridge, crumbled, or as a loaf sliced up and fried. This humble peasant dish is gaining popularity in gourmet restaurants.  Pep it up with sauces, veggies and toppings, it’s delicious as an accompaniment or a main meal. Goodness Me has packaged this golden grain in cute biodegradable packaging so it’s plastic free and eco-friendly. The pretty yellow pigment is from carotenoids, powerful antioxidants that protect your body from damage caused by free radicals and enhance your immune system.

This polenta has a beautiful deeply yellow color, the best of all the different corn meals I have tried so far. I made corn muffins with it and they turned out wonderfully tasty and wonderfully attractive.

Some of the most affordable products around! Compare prices and see for yourself...

I will definitely order this again. And the enviromentally friendly packaging is such a bonus.
28/05/2018, By Cristina
As a zero-plastic packaged product this is now my standard buy. Polenta itself is delicious. No complaints. Because the inner "plastic" packet is quite flimsy I fold it over and seal it with a clothing peg which works very well.
10/05/2018, By Debbie
Very tasty and easy to make!
18/04/2018, By Stacey
I love the taste, packaging and quality of this product. Definitely will be buying this product again.
16/03/2018, By Nicole
Excellent product but the instructions are off for me, I use allot more water than they say, guess it depends on personal preference.
23/11/2017, By Tali
So much better than the bleached gmo, toxic waste.
13/07/2017, By Nathalie
I have bought a few boxes over the last year and it is really a good product.
12/07/2017, By Megan-lee
It cooks well and tastes like regular polenta, just had hoped the box would be a tiny bit bigger but overall a good quality product!
