Hominy, another name for dried maize kernels, is rich in carbohydrates and very low in fat.

A one-cup serving of hominy is lower in calories than many common grains like rice or pasta, making it a good choice for healthy eating. The dietary fiber of hominy at 4grams per 1 cup serving, while not nearly as high as beans, still makes it a good choice to meet your daily needs.

We love to use hominy in soups and stews and as a great addition to salads! Check out our recipe section for other fun ideas for recipes featuring hominy.
