ORGANIC MASA HARINA, tortilla flour, yellow corn
Hurry up! Sales Ends In
Masa, the Spanish word for "dough," is the traditional dough used to make corn tortillas. It is made with hominy, or dried corn kernels that have been cooked and soaked in lime (calcium hydroxide) water, which are then ground into masa. Masa harina is flour made from the cooked, dried masa.
Production: Field corn (maize) grain is dried and then treated by soaking and cooking the mature (hard) grain in a diluted solution of lime (calcium hydroxide) or wood ash, a process termed nixtamalization developed in Mesoamerica thousands of years ago. Lime and ash are highly alkaline which help the dissolution of hemicellulose (a glue-like component of the maize cell walls), loosens the hulls from the kernels, and softens the corn for grinding.
Qualities: This process also changes the structure of the corn, freeing the nutritionally rich niacin so that it can be easily absorbed into the digestive tract. In addition, calcium is gained from the lime used as an alkali. The nixtamalization process also balances the amino acids, accessing more usable protein from the corn.
Common use: Masa harina is most commonly used to make tortillas, but it is also featured in other delicious dishes including tamales, pupusas, and arepas.
Storage: keeps well in a sealed container in a cool, dry, and dark location

best option ever
amazing! its the best Ive come across in this country I used to bring form Mex, until C19 hit and then I found OmFoods and loved the harina and many other things. plus their customer service is impecable and very person to person, as in they know who I am, hahahahah! Or so I think...
This is very good corn flour, I like it.But pressing it between plastic sheets, the tried and true method, it sticks to both sides, tearing apart. No resolution found, maybe too fine a grind.
Makes amazing tortillas
This is my favorite masa. The grind is a bit finer than Bob's Red Mill, which makes the tortillas softer and more flexible. We try to always keep it on hand.
The best masa harina
Excellent !!!Tortillas are the best using your organic nasa harina ❤️
Great for arepas
This makes softer and smoother arepas then other organic harinas like bobs red mill. Our preferred pre- cooked harina
