La Polenta Beretta Gran Express 16 oz
La Polenta Il Riso Beretta is a gourmet food product made with ground yellow or white cornmeal, ground maize. La Polenta Gran Express can be ground coarsely or finely depending on the region and the texture desired. As it is known today, polenta derives from earlier forms of grain mush known as puls or pulmentum in Latin or more commonly as gruel or porridge, commonly eaten in Roman era. Early forms of polenta were made with such starches as the grain farro and chestnut flour, both of which are still used in small quantity today. When boiled, polenta has a smooth creamy texture due to the gelatinization of starch in the grain, though it may not be completely homogenous if a coarse grind or a particularly hard grain such as flint corn is used. Polenta was originally a peasant food. However, since the late 20th century, polenta has become a premium product. Polenta dishes are on the menu in many high-end restaurants.
