The Clinehens choose the most flavorful organic hybrid seed for our corn tortillas, masa, chips, and crackers. This variety is chosen for the best performance in the ancient Mayan process of Nixtamal, which we use for making our Original Corn Tortilla Chips, our Black Bean & Corn Tortilla Chips, our Corn Cracker Minis, and our Fresh Corn Tortillas. Nixtamal both creates a great flavor that’s integral to corn tortillas, and makes B vitamins in corn available.
Our Organic hybrid corn is grown by Chris Clinehens, his daughter, Ginger, his father, Gerald, and his wife, Kim, at Clinehens Organic Farm in Shelby County, Ohio. The Clinehens never use GMO varieties, as is required to be Certified Organic.
