Corn Masa Flour

(Corn Masa Flour)  Corn masa flour is made from dehydrated, finely ground whole grain corn and lime. It's primarily used for making tortillas and other Mexican, and Central and South American recipes.  We also use the corn mesa flour as a coating and dusting flour, as a thickening agent, and in baking.  We could not find the nutritional information for the whole grain masa flour with lime.  Since we use only whole grains, we could not be completely sure of the actual nutritional content of this flour, which we believe is somewhere in between the nutritional information for whole-grain and masa flours, which can be seen below.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
