Corn Tortillas


The corn tortilla is a staple item in the art of Mexican food. The diet of Mexico’s ancestors was purely native, and nutrition was based upon corn.

Although corn tortillas are principally all “die-cut,” they are made from a variety of corn types. Corn masa and cooked corn are the two primary methods. Corn tortillas vary widely in thickness, moisture content and texture.

Corn Products Processing
Masa - Corn masa means that these corn tortillas are produced from a pre-ground corn flour. The corn flour is very fine which tends to create a finished product that is mild and smooth in flavor and texture. Corn flour is available in a wide variety of styles and specifications, all of which can play a significant role in the final result of the product. They perform very well for rolling enchiladas and for use as “table bread.”

Cooked - Cooked corn tortillas are manufactured using whole kernel corn ground down on site. Large circular grinding stones are carved and used to grind the kernels. The finished result is a grainier product with a coarse texture. They are very authentic in appearance and taste. These tortillas perform very well for deep fried applications like tacos, tostadas and chips.
