Additional Information:
Pre cooked corn flour from sound maize. Polenta is a dish of boiled cornmeal that was historically made from other grains. It may be served as a hot porridge, or it may be allowed to cool and solidify into a loaf that can be baked, fried, or grilled.

Polenta is a traditional Italian ingredient made from cornmeal, which had been eaten since Roman times. The name derives from the Latin pollen, meaning fine flour. Polenta is usually boiled in water (sometimes milk) until cooked through and either served straight away or chilled then sliced and fried. When prepared in the traditional way, polenta is cooked in a copper pot called a paiolo and stirred with a large wooden spoon known as the torello.

Storage Advice:
Refined flour is made from the endosperm of wheat with the bran and germ removed. It results in a fine, soft flour that’s light or white in colour. Refined flours include all-purpose, white, bread, cake, and self-rising flour.

Whole-grain flours are made from all three parts of the wheat or grain: germ, endosperm, and bran. This means the flour is high in fiber and nutrition, but it also means whole wheat flour will spoil faster. Whole grain flours included whole wheat, oat, rice, rye, nut (like almond flour).

The best way to tell if flour is rancid is by smell. If the flour has a musty, dusty smell or a sour smell, then it is past its prime. If it smells like flour should smell, then it is safe to use. Do not combine new and old packages of flour since it will shorten the shelf life of the new flour.

Some benefits of proper food storage include eating healthier, cutting food costs and helping the environment by avoiding waste.

Here are some tips for maximising the shelf:

  • Store in an airtight container.
  • Store in a cool, dark cupboard.
  • Store away from direct heat or sunlight.
  • Suitable for home freezing.
  • Keep lid tightly closed when not in use.
