El Lago holds Austin near and dear. We support the community with donations of chips and tortillas. We send our scrap to farms for feed. Our waste water initiative has cut our waste water so that we save over 10,000 gallons of fresh water a month.
If you ever drive down 5th street and see the back of our building you will see another way we support Austin. The back of our building is a pallet for local artist. We have had artist ask permission to paint on our building and we have said yes. The rules are simple; ask permission, submit ideas, no hate or violent messages. Artists need to respect the previous art on the wall. Currently our wall are full.
Now when you take the metro rail check out the El Lago side of the tracks and see the art. There is so much there that you will see something different every time.
El Lago Keeping Austin Local!
Addie Broyles of the Austin American Statesman wrote an article about probiotics and where they are being used and what foods are incorporating them. El Lago’s probiotic tortillas are mentioned as well as the benefits of probiotics.
edible Austin has included El Lago in an article called “Chipping Away at Change”. In this article the Author talks with restaurant mangers about why they are using Non GMO corn products including El Lago!
Here at El Lago we are always looking for something new to produce. It can't be just new we want it to have a healthy aspect to the customer. We are working on a gluten free multigrain tortilla. This isn't a just a corn tortilla but a tortilla that rolls like a flour tortilla and cooks up real nice. Likewise we are in the process of coming out with a low glycemic tortilla. This tortilla has been tested and proved to not spike blood sugar. The test subjects were very please with the performance of this tortilla.
Both of these tortillas should be in markets early next year.
We have produced a multigrain chip that has great earthy tones and crumbles in your mouth with great taste. These have been offered to private labels but should be available in 2011. Other flavors are in the works for private labels and may migrate into our mainstream products. These include a cheese-flavored chip to match an un-named competitor. Other flavors are in the works. All I can tell you is that it will make your mouth water with anticipation. I have tried them and they are GOOOOOOD!
