Masa Flour Maseca

About

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 Mexico. Masa flour maseca is dairy-free, gluten-free, sourced from non-GM seeds and grown away from GM crops.

Uses

Masa flour is a great core ingredient for many Mexican dishes, such as corn tortillas, tamales, chalupas and even corn chips. This finely ground corn can be mixed with water (or sometimes oil) to form the dough called “masa”, which can then be used to make these Mexican wraps and chips.
