Tlaxcalli | Mais Tostada Clasica
We are extremely pleased to welcome the first organic tortilleria in Europe on Archipel.
The Tlaxcalli team produces everything from scratch, starting from the field where they collaborate with their friends from the Coop BioBoden to grow beautiful ancient varieties of corn (In Rothenklempenow, Northern Germany).
And then the magic of Nixtamalization happens. What is Nixtamalization, you say? We’ll let the guys explain it. From their website:
“This is the genius, magic, ancient and superior method of cooking corn. Applied by indigenous cultures of the Americas since centuries, cooking and letting the whole corn soak in water with lime stone has many advantages: it loosens the outer layer of the kernel, (that normally gets stuck between your teeth), it splits up proteins and makes them digestible and makes several nutrients available to your body, adds calcium, gives the tortilla flexibility, acts as natural preservative and gives it the authentic flavour. Corn that is not treated this way just runs untouched through your digestive system.
We only use and offer Nixtamal. It is superior for your body and tongue: Nixtamal Masa vs dry masa flour; think sourdough bread vs commercial toast or potato mash from scratch vs powder out of the pack”.
Well, since you know where we stand on the “sourdough bread vs commercial toast” issue, you can imagine how excited we are about this collaboration! The varieties we chose for your delight are the following:
These are crispy baked mini Tortillas, that make the perfect snack. You can call them chips, ideal for dipping, for Chilaquiles or cheesy movie nights. Like all our products made from organic, regional corn.
These are crispy baked spicy mini Tortillas, that make the perfect snack if you like some extra heat. You can call them chips, ideal for dipping, for Chilaquiles or cheesy movie nights. Like all our products made from organic, regional corn.
We turn Masa Nixtamal also into Tostadas. Premium crunch and flavour, spiced up with Habanero, Chocolate & Cinnamon, toasted Sesame or Classic as a base for Ceviche and Salsa. Skip the greasy regular Chips and do yourself good with approx 90% less fat, cause they are baked and not fried.
