Are these grits NON-instant?

I've been on the hunt for grits that are not instant. It's really hard to find them in stores, even here in foodie Oakland/Berkeley.

So here's the question-- is this product non-instant?

It doesn't say one way or the other on the packaging as far as I can see.

Thanks for your help.

  1. They are not instant. Typically 3 types; regular, quick and instant. Also yellow and white being the most common.

      Oh, thanks. I didn't know about the 3 categories (thought there were just 2). So these are quick but not instant, I would guess?

        The description says they cook in 8 minutes. That puts them in the 'quick' category. Typically they are better if you increase the time (e.g. to 20 minutes), and if needed the amount of water.
