Cornmeal is basically dried corn that has been ground into fine, medium or coarse consistencies and is mostly used for baking. There are different types of cornmeal, two of which are the white and yellow variety.

The yellow cornmeal is made from yellow corn, has a strong, sweet flavor, and is the more popular choice for those who make desserts and pastries. The white cornmeal is made from white corn kernels and is said to have a fainter sweet taste compared to the yellow kind.

Although they are a little bit different, only those who are more familiar with the taste can tell the difference between the flavors, that is why they can be used interchangeably.

White and yellow cornmeal are two kinds of flour that are used to make bread all over the country.

White cornmeal comes from an assortment of corn that is white, which is why this flour is white. It contains a minimal amount of vitamin B, and it also does not taste sweet, which is a common feature of yellow cornmeal. It is primarily cultivated in southern states, and that is why this flour primarily sells in that area.

Yellow cornmeal comes from yellow corn, which is more prevalent and grown everywhere in the United States. It contains a high amount of vitamin B, and it is also extremely sweet, which makes it a popular alternative for creating bread and pastries. It has been said that bread made with yellow cornmeal has more flavor.
