Self-Rising Cornmeal



Self-Rising Cornmeal is ground cornmeal premixed with baking powder and salt. You can get white and yellow versions.

You can buy this in some areas, especially the American South. Brands include Aunt Jemima, Martha White, White Lily, Tenda-Bake, Three Rivers, Yelton's, etc.

Some brands such as Martha White may include some wheat flour (as of 2010.)

The White Lily Flour brand is owned by Smuckers since 2008. Milling facilities for the product have been moved out of the south in Knoxville, Tennesee, to the American midwest. [1] Some American southerners say they can tell the difference now.
