Softeners

Custom Ingredients, Ltd. makes corn softeners for both corn and Molina masa.  They improve softness but als allow the tortilla to be reheated on the comal with better roll-ability and less cracking.

 

Corn Flour

Corn flour tortillas stale rapidly because they contain significant quantities of damaged starch.  Corn softeners extend the shelf life of corn flour tortillas, and allows them to retain more moisture.

 

Molino Corn Masa

Ground corn tortillas become hard because they contain a high amalose content.  Custom Ingredients makes softeners for ground corn which can slow down the re-association of amalose (retro graduation) and give you a softer tortilla that retains more moisture.  Eating quality is greatly improved.
