Tortilla Nixtamalizada: Sana y Sabrosa
Thursday, July 12, 4pm
Vía Orgánica, Margarito Ledesma 2
With Pilar Quintanilla
In this workshop, Pilar will talk about all the nutritional benefits that the nixtamalization process brings. Properly prepared, tortillas are a very complete food, but you have to know how to choose well. What is the difference between the industrialized tortilla that we find in most tortillerías and an omelette made with the traditional process of nixtamalization?
Via Organica AC is a Mexican non-profit organization whose mission is to promote healthy eating and sustainable future through the promotion of knowledge and practice of regenerative organic agriculture, fair trade, social justice, sustainable living and protecting the planet.
Via Organica is located in a groovy, art-y barrio on the north side of San Miguel (in Colonia Guadalupe). The store is much bigger than Natura and they have the largest selection of organic foods in San Miguel. They sell produce, meats, cheeses and other dairy products (or substitutes), packaged products, condiments and many items made in-house (like salsas, condiments, baked goods, etc.). They also have a small organic restaurant in the back. Via Organica is owned by a non-profit co-op that also has an organic farm.
