A Few Facts About Grits

Three-quarters of grits sold in the U.S. are predominantly in the South, stretching from Texas to Virginia, which is also known as the “grits belt.” 

 In South Carolina, state law requires grits and corn meal to be enriched, similar to the requirements for flour, unless the grits are ground from corn from which the miller keeps part of the product for his fee.

Grits have their origins in Native American corn preparation. Traditionally, the hominy for grits was ground by a stone mill. You can still buy stone ground grits today.
