THE CORN

At Tortilleria Mi Niña®, we source our non-GMO White Corn from Rovey Seed Co. in Illinois.

Rovey Seeds is a family owned business operating for over 30 years. They take pride in their relationship with farmers and the quality of their products. They are invested in providing customers with consistent and quality grains and they utilize the latest cleaning and sorting technology.

When we partnered up with local restaurant chain Boloco, they sent out an investigator to report on some of their ingredient sources.  Check out this amazing video as they travel to Farmersville, Illinois and then back to our old facility in Everett, Ma to watch their tortilla chips in production.  


THE OIL

We source our high quality oil from 5th generation family owned business, Catania Oils located in Ayer, MA.  As a consumer, you can be happy to know our chips are made by frying our freshly made corn tortillas in 100% Non-GMO oils.  We recently started using Sunflower Oil as our main fry oil because of its clean taste, stability, and nutritional value.  What this means for you? Our oils have no Trans Fats, no preservatives, and are higher in good monounsaturated fats than other oils.  Because of the high demand of Sunflower oil, it may become unavailable at times. When sunflower oil may not be available, we use Non-GMO project verified Non-GMO Canola oil. 

At Tortilleria Mi Niña® we are also concerned with our impact on the environment.  All of our waste oil is given to a local company to be turned into Bio Diesel.  

 

THE SALT

In keeping with our tradition of using only the best ingredients possible, we tried many different salts before settling on the perfect one.  We tested grain size, crunch, and how quickly it dissolves.  We finally decided on La Baleine Sea Salt, a Mediterranean sea salt produced in the Aigues-Mortes saltworks in Camargue, France (since 1856).  We never add salt to our masa dough,  after our chips are fried, they are gently tossed in a fine sea salt for that perfect salty crunch.  Along with the rest of our ingredients, La Baleine Sea Salt is naturally non-GMO, kosher, and gluten-free.
