So, what is wachsmais?

Wachsmais, also known as wax corn, is a unique variety of corn with a waxy, translucent outer layer that gives it a distinct appearance and texture. This type of corn is characterized by its high starch content, which makes it ideal for producing cornmeal, corn flour, and other corn-based products. Wachsmais is typically grown in warmer climates and has a sweet, nutty flavor that is highly sought after in traditional Mexican and Central American cuisine. It can be used in a variety of dishes, including tamales, tortillas, and soups, and is a great source of dietary fiber and essential nutrients such as iron, magnesium, and vitamin B6.
