Quality

We manufacture your products within the range you specify and we confirm our quality 350,000 times per year by measuring a minimum of six specifications:

  1. pH: Measurement of the acidity or basicity of the product used to determine finished product taste and shelf life.
  2. % Moisture or Water Activity: Used to determine texture and shelf life.
  3. Diameter and Weight: Checking each tortilla, by chip, by package, by shipping case.
  4. Visual: Ensuring each product shape, edges, color, toast points.
  5. Fry Color: For fried chips, the USDA French Fry Chart is used to compare finished product versus your specified color range.
  6. Packaging: Accurate information on shelf life, production details and labeling.
