Masa Harina – White Corn
Long before the Spanish introduced wheat flour to Mexico, the natives discovered how to derive whole protein from corn. By boiling dried corn kernels with lime, they chanced upon a chemistry that turns corn into a more nutritious food of complete protein. The lime-treated corn, called Masa de Maiz, became the staple of a burgeoning population and remains today the major food source in México.
Core ingredient for making many Mexican dishes, such as corn tortillas, tamales and chalupas. Our masa is a product of California, gluten/dairy free, sourced from non GM seeds and grown away from GM crops.
