Masa flours

Limagrain Ingredients has been a masa flour expert for more than thirty years. This is a special ingredient used in Tex Mex products: tortilla chips, tacos, soft tortillas or even corn chips.

Masa flours are traditionally made using a nixtamalisation process but this requires a lot of water and energy. Limagrain Ingredients has developed a patented hydrothermal process for obtaining similar products while improving the consistency, shelf life and environmental impact of the masa flour.
We have a wide range of masa flours and we are constantly working with our customers to consider all of their requirements: texture, taste and production process for TexMex products.


Superior quality

Continuous adjustment of our production properties results in consistent quality and a product similar to that achieved with the traditional process.


Innosense Masa is a wide range of masa flours that meet the needs of every manufacturer. An expert team is available to customers to adapt or improve current solutions.

Technical expertise

Our technical know-how means we can consider every factor when producing our Innosense Masa flours: the raw material (corn type and variety), the heat treatment itself and the final application (texture and taste) and our customers' production process.
