Heritage Foods USA is working with the Iroquois White Corn Project in the Finger Lake Region to revive Iroquois White Corn as part of a traditional Native American diet and provide a sustainable market for Haudenosaunee farmers.
Iroquois White Corn is available in three varieties – hulled white corn, roasted corn flour and white corn flour. The whole kernel hulled and roasted corn flour are aromatic with a slightly nutty flavor, adding a depth of flavor to your tortillas, corn bread, posole, vegetable soup, muffins or cookies.
