grits are made by grinding corn - not hominy. hominy grits are producted by soaking the corn in lye, letting it dry, then grinding the corn. also, by grinding the whole kernel of corn (germ intact), the grits are more flavorful and nutritional. most instant grits are degerminated before they are ground, which leads to a bland flavor.
