This authentic Mexican masa harina is gluten-free flour made from finely ground corn or corn meal. In Mexico, masa harina is widely used for making tortillas – as well as dough for traditional tamales, antojitos and gorditas. Directly translated as ‘dough flour’, masa harina is made from corn kernels which are dried, cooked and then soaked in lime water, before being ground into a fine flour.

Masa harina is increasingly popular for people with gluten-intolerances, as well as being used for traditional Mexican breads and tortillas. Like tapioca flour, gram flour, rice flour and coconut flour, masa harina can be bound with xanthan gum or guar gum to make gluten-free bread, pie crusts and sponges. Use a tortilla press to make beautiful artisan tortillas, a classic base for so many authentic Mexican dishes.
