Tio Pablo Masa Harina Yellow Corn 680g


Masa harina is a flour created from dried corn and treated with a diluted solution of slaked limestone: a process called nixtamalisation. Developed in Mesoamerica thousands of years ago, this process loosens the hulls from the kernel and softens the corn for grinding, creating a source of dietary calcium and allowing niacin to be absorbed into the digestive tract. Masa harina is most commonly used to make tortillas, but it is also featured in other delicious dishes including tamales, pupusas, and arepas.
