Cornmeal is typically ground up maize corn, but there are several different varieties such as yellow corn meal, blue cornmeal, and white cornmeal. All cornmeal has a fine gritty flour like texture and either a bright yellow appearance just like corn on the cob does, or a blue or white appearance depending on the corn that is used to make it.
Cornmeal is flour obtained from ground dried American corn. It has a nice fine medium consistency and it is a staple food in many parts of the world. However, cornmeal has many other uses and benefits that stretch far beyond its nutritional value. Cornmeal is known as one of the best natural dermatological antifungal compounds but it is also excellent for the skin and has many beneficial properties for beauty.
