So, what is maiz blanco?

Maiz blanco, or white corn, is a versatile food ingredient that has been a staple in many cultures for centuries. Unlike yellow corn, which is more commonly used in the United States, maiz blanco is typically grown in Mexico and other parts of South America. It has a lighter color, softer texture, and sweeter flavor than yellow corn, making it ideal for use in dishes such as tortillas, tamales, and pozole. Maiz blanco is also a good source of dietary fiber, magnesium, and vitamin B-6, making it a nutritious addition to any meal. Whether used as a main ingredient or a side dish, maiz blanco adds a unique and delicious flavor to any dish.
