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 Tex Mex products.
