Maiiz Nixtamal Tortilleria
A higher quality tortilla made with Certified Organic Corn, grown in Armstrong BC, using Chef Israel Alvarez Molina’s technique, inspired in the traditional Mesoamerican Nixtamalization process.
Unlike the majority of tortillas in North America, MAiiZ Tortillas use corn kernels to make fresh Nixtamal Masa Dough instead of factory produced powdered mixes. This Nixtamalization process maintains the nutritional integrity increasing the body’s ability to absorb those nutrients and preserves the flavour in the tortilla.
MAiiZ Nixtamal Tortillas have a flavour, aroma, texture and an elasticity that is lost when using masa that has been dried into flour. Our Tortillas feel and taste better.
It’s more than just authentic
