Masa Harina & Maseca



Masa Harina & Maseca

Masa Harina is a type of flour made from dried corn that has been treated with an alkaline solution, typically lime (calcium hydroxide). 

This process, known as nixtamalization, softens the corn and enhances its nutritional value, making it more digestible. 

Masa Harina is a fundamental ingredient in Mexican cuisine, especially for making tortillas, tamales, and other traditional dishes

It is mixed with water to create a dough known as masa, which is then pressed or rolled into various shapes for cooking.

Maseca is a brand of masa harina, and is known for its consistent quality and reliability in producing the perfect masa for tamales and other Mexican dishes.
