Masa Harina is a flavorful flour made from nixtamalized corn (corn soaked in limewater). It is a must-have ingredient for traditional, homemade corn tortillas and tamales.


Masa, the Spanish word for "dough," is the traditional dough used to make corn tortillas. It is made with hominy, or dried corn kernels that have been cooked and soaked in lime water, which is ground into masa. Masa harina is flour made from dried masa. The nixtamalization process (soaking in lime water) was developed in Mesoamerica thousands of years ago. It loosens the hulls from the kernel and softens the corn for grinding by breaking down the glue-like component called hemicellulose. This process also changes the structure of the corn, freeing the nutritionally rich niacin so that it can be easily absorbed into the digestive track. In addition, calcium is gained from the lime used as an alkali. The nixtamalization process also balances the amino acids, accessing more usable protein from the corn. Masa harina is most commonly used to make tortillas, but it is also featured in other delicious dishes including tamales, pupusas, and arepas.

Good flour for a beginner tortilla maker.
I'm a beginner at making tortillas, but this seems to be good flour to me. What led me to start making these is the recommendation of masa harina flour by Ray Peat, as a means to keep PUFA low, and as an alternative to wheat. If you follow the directions on the package, your tortillas should come out well. The one minor issue I need to attempt to remedy is the dough drying out when kept in the refrigerator. Like I say, this is minor, and maybe the remedy is just making them fresh.

Not a Cook, but Trying
Cooking For:
I live overseas in SE Asia so finding Mexican cooking supplies is hard. There are always El Paso ready made tortillas but the taste is off. So, I was excited to find Bob's Red Mill in Manila.

Compared to Maseca, this product does not come close to matching up. Just looking at the color, I assume that Bob's Red Mill is either mixing with yellow corn and/or they are using a different corn than the Mexicans use in Maseca. I am from CA and am very close to a lot of Mexican families so I am used to eating true Mexican style food - and that is the taste I want.

I used Red's and Maseca for both making corn tortillas for carne asada and for cutting into chips. The BRM taste is a bit off for carne and the chips' taste and frying was a bit off as well.

If you have not had authentic Mexican food, I guess this can work and hit the spot. But, if you are looking to replicate true Mexican tortillas, this will leave you wanting. On my last trip to the US, I bought 20kg of Maseca to carry back. Worth every penny.

World's Better than Maseca Masa
I am new to the homemade corn tortilla game and have been testing different brands. So far I've test Bob's Red Mill and Maseca, and Bob's Red Mill won hands down. I found that a little bit more water than you are comfortable with makes for a more pliable, less leathery tortilla. And definitely use a cast iron skillet! I originally used a nonstick skillet and the cast iron skillet made a HUGE difference. I also recommend pressing these as thin as possible without tearing. So good. Thanks Bob's Red Mill!

Nothing like a Homemade Tortilla!
I've been making homemade tortillas for years and used Maseca in the past. Then, I found it here, at Bob's Redmill. I am happy to report that this product is superior in taste, texture, and ease of mixing. Yes, the tortillas are on thick side, but we prefer them that way. The ones in the market have so many additives and they are like leather. Nothing beats a homemade tortilla! Could you PLEASE make this product in a 5lb bag?

To coarse of a grind for plyable tortillas
This is not as finely ground as other brands of masa harina. It would work well for one of those tortilla bakes where the tortillas can be quite a bit thicker. I found that because the corn was not ground as fine, it didn't absorb water as effectively so the "sweet spot" between too thick and breaking into pieces just wasn't there. Flavor-wise I wasn't impressed either as the lime undertone usually present was sadly absent. I love other Bob's Red Mill products but I wish I had skipped this one.

Can Bob's add to its labeling "Product raised from...non-GMO seeds....."?
Does FCC prevent Bob's from printing something like the following, which they post on their website: "Product raised from identity-preserved, non-GMO seeds. This means that the seed planted in the ground is non-GMO. We do not guarantee the complete absence of GMO materials in our products." I almost didn't buy this product because I distrust the healthiness of non-GMO foods. I admire the honesty of the company and am happy to find the original seed was non-GMO.

Best Masa Harina - Need 5lb bag!
I recently started making homemade tortillas. Not knowing what brand of Masa Harina to buy, I bought 1 bag each of Bob's Red Mill & Maseca. After mixing, resting, shaping & cooking dough from each brand, Bob's Red Mill is the winner hands down! It has a lot more flavor & the texture is better overall. (The Maseca flour made firmer, more leathery tortillas.) I would highly recommend this Masa Harina mix to anyone wanting to make homemade tortillas or tamales. I just wish it came in a 5# bag.

I plan to incorporate this flour into my cooking. I've been changing my eating plan to a more plant based plan. Hoping this will work in nicely.

Because we live in Mexico and 99% of the corn and masa here is GMO!

So much better tasting than Maseca. It is more work (must soak first), but the improved taste and texture is worth it.

BEST ANSWER: The gluten free version is milled and manufactured in our gluten free facility and tested for gluten. The others are produced in our main facility where there is a chance of cross contact with wheat. The ingredients aren't different, but where we package them and how they're tested is different.
Hi there, do you have a recipe for tortillas in grams? For example how may grams of water should I mix with 100 grams of masa. Thank you.
A shopper on Mar 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi! Here is the tortilla recipe from the bag converted to grams: 232 grams (2 cups) of Masa Harina to 235 grams (1 cup) of water.
Is this Masa Harina the same as instant masa?
Jonathan L on Feb 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi! We don't specifically categorize our Masa Harina as "instant," but it looks like it's prepared the same way in recipes.
Do you grind bran, germ and endosperm or you dont use the bran?
edin p on Jan 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, the corn is de-germed, therefore it is not whole grain.
