What is Polenta?
Polenta is a dish, not an ingredient. It’s a mashed-up, porridge-like dish that is made from ground-up cornmeal. It originated in northern Italy.
Is Polenta Gluten-Free?
Since polenta is generally made out of cornmeal, it is naturally gluten-free. Always check the labels to make sure though.
