How is our 100% raw, organic sprouted blue corn flour different from white and yellow cornmeal? More protein, more antioxidants, a lower glycemic index, and a more complex, nutty flavor. It’s packed with fiber and anthocyanins, antioxidants that protect the eyes. It’s also an excellent source of vitamin B6, magnesium, phosphorus, and manganese and a good source of iron, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, and zinc.
And it’s versatile! Try blue corn flour as a gluten-free baking flour in breads and sweets, add it to soups and stews, or make your own cornbread and hot cereal. If you’re feeling ambitious, even try making your own blue corn tortillas!
Our Better Than Roasted (BTR) sprouting process maximizes the bioavailability of essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in blue corn. It also removes bitterness and concentrates flavor, yielding a sweeter, more easily digestible, and more flavorful flour. Read more about our BTR process HERE.
Once they’re soaked and sprouted, we stone-grind the corn kernels slowly at low temperatures to further preserve sensitive vitamins and nutrients. After all, that’s how flour was first made. Read about the benefits of stone-grinding HERE!
FUN FACT! Though blue corn was just one of dozens of varieties of corn grown by the Native Americans of the Southwest, it was a delicacy because of its ritual importance and because its fragile stalk demanded such coddling.
