Description

Maseca blue masa harina flour makes intensely corn-flavoured tortillas and tamales, with a stunning blue hue. This authentic Mexican blue maseca has a sweeter, nuttier flavour than white or yellow varieties.

The corn flour is made from an ancient variety of blue corn. The kernels are dried, cooked and then soaked in mineral-rich lime water, before being ground into a fine flour. The flour is a pale blue-grey in the packet, but becomes vibrant when added to water and darkens during cooking to a deep indigo colour.

Use maseca blue masa harina in a wide variety of Mexican dishes – such as tortillas, tacos, gorditas and tamales. The corn flour also makes a great ingredient in gluten free cooking. Combine with xanthan gum or guar gum to make gluten free bread, pie crusts and sponge cakes.

Try our existing masa harina guides to get started: How To Make Corn Tortillas Using a Tortilla Press and How To Make Mexican Tamales. Simply substitute maseca blue masa harina flour in the recipes to make blue versions of these Mexican classics.

Please note that blue maseca has a very short shelf life. It is produced in Mexico with just 3-4 months, and then has to travel to the UK when it will have around a month. Current best before date 15 August 2017.

Ingredients: blue maize nixtamalized with calcium oxide (E529), iron, zinc, vitamin B3, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, folic acid.
