Are polenta and semolina the same thing?

Semolina is wheat, polenta is corn. ‘Polenta’ may also refer to the grain or the dish that results from using polenta. There are occasions where you can substitute one for the other, but not all the time. Semolina is high in protein and fiber and low GI, so it’s good for you!

What can I use if I don’t have cornmeal? 

  1. Corn grits. This is a corn product that is among the best substitute for cornmeal.
  2. Polenta. This is another ground corn. 
  3. Corn flour. Note that corn flour is different from cornmeal.
  4. Masa Harina. This is a kind of corn flour that will make your tortilla. 
  5. Flour.
