Made from white corn, Geechie Boy Mill White Grits are coarse ground in antique mills. This tried-and-true corn grinding process helps retain the natural oils and flavors of the white corn. While some people claim yellow grits taste sweeter than white grits, there’s no real difference in the taste. Coarse ground grits provide a creamier texture and taste, and the longer they cook, the creamier they get. White grits are ideal when making shrimp and grits because they allow the bright color of the shrimp to pop on the plate. If you prefer to hide cheese in your grits, you might want to select yellow.
