Best Answer

No. They are just grain, however, additives such as butter or sugar are both unhealthy. Grits are alright. Oatmeal, in comparision, could be said to be healthier, as it's higher in both soluble fiber and insoluble fiber and is also a whole grain. But there's nothing wrong with unflavored grits.

Bugs that are from the grits do not carry bacteria and diseases from other sources. Bugs from outside the grits can carry bacteria and disease to the grits.
