Sweet Corn Cakes

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
This is absolutely delicious!!! The importance of the masa harina is that it contains lime which aids in digestion and absorption of the nutrients found in corn. The Native Americans originally would use ashes from their hardwood fires to the corn flour/meal originally. Lack of knowledge of this to the Europeans that brought maize back with them caused many to die or suffer Mal-absorption issues. I hope this clears up any confusion of the difference between the Mas Harina and Corn flour.
