So, what is white maize flour?

White maize flour is a fine powder made from grinding the kernels of white corn. It has a slightly sweet and nutty flavor, with a light texture that lends itself well to baking. This gluten-free flour is high in fiber, protein, and essential vitamins and minerals, making it a healthy alternative to wheat flour. White maize flour is commonly used in traditional dishes like tortillas, tamales, and pupusas, but its versatility allows it to be used in a wide range of recipes, including bread, cakes, and pancakes. Its light color makes it an excellent substitute for other flours in recipes that require a neutral taste and appearance.
