So, what is corn masa flour?

Corn masa flour is a traditional ingredient used in Mexican cuisine that is made from dried corn that has been treated with lime. This treatment process, known as nixtamalization, helps to break down the tough outer hull of the corn and release its nutrients, resulting in a more flavorful and nutritious flour. Corn masa flour is commonly used to make tortillas, tamales, and other traditional dishes. It is gluten-free and low in fat, making it a healthier alternative to wheat flour. The distinctive flavor and texture of corn masa flour make it an essential ingredient for creating authentic Mexican dishes.
