Do corn grits count as a corn toward fruit/veg count per day?

Hominy is dried and puffed whole kernels of corn and corn grits are coarsely ground dried corn. We count canned hominy as a vegetable serving, but once hominy or corn are ground into a flour and then used more as a “grain” product like corn grits, we no longer count it as a vegetable serving.  (Similarly, we do not count popcorn as one of your vegetable servings!)
