White Olotillo Heirloom Masa, Masienda
Heirloom White Corn Masa Harina is a fine-ground nixtamalized corn flour perfect for making not just tortillas but also other favorites like tostadas, tamales, pupusas, arepas and more. Its deep flavor comes from high quality heirloom corn, which is cooked, slow dried and milled to perfection in small batches. Never genetically modified. Always gluten-free.
There’s little not to love about White Olotillo, which comes from the coastal region of Oaxaca. We’ve found that it has a slightly higher natural oil content, making for a more concentrated, decadent corn flavor that lingers on your palate. It’s a workhorse varietal that will produce a balanced masa, no matter the final application. It contains a light, floury starch for a pillowy table tortilla and a dense enough body for making perfect tostadas, totopos and recipe tortillas (i.e., tortillas meant for enchiladas, enfrijoladas, etc.) that don’t absorb excess oil when fried. Its versatility makes it perfect for our best-selling Heirloom White Corn Masa Harina.
