The aroma and flavor of our fresh masa are rich and authentic, and the dough can be used for homemade tortillas, tamales, pupusas, and many other Latin American dishes. Our fresh corn masa dough is made from the same Ohio-grown, Organic corn as the tortilla chips and crackers, and made the traditional way, by soaking the corn overnight in a solution of water and limestone. This solution is the ancient method called, “Nixtamal”, which turns the corn into a delicious superfood by beginning the digestion process and creating a chemical reaction that unlocks the niacin and other nutrients, making them more bioavailable.
You may be accustomed to making tamales and tortillas from masa harina, which is a dehydrated and powdered form of masa dough that needs to be rehydrated. It’s rare to find masa harina that is made from Ohio-grown, Organic corn, let alone finding fresh masa dough, made the old fashioned way! If you ever find your way to Athens, find the Nixtamalized Food Cart at the Farmers Market, for fresh tamales and tortillas made from our masa!
Kokis Tortillas in Columbus, Ohio, has brought their their expert food production skills to Shagbark product development using our organic hybrid corn without the preservatives. They make Shagbark fresh tortillas every week.
