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!
El Lago flour tortillas are made with flour and water and shortening with a little baking powder and a lot of care. The dough is rolled and kneaded and made into balls. Each ball is pressed into a tortilla and baked just enough to remove the water from the equation. Then the tortillas are cooled before packaging. The El Lago tortilla is ready to reheat at home for many uses. The flour tortillas puff up when heated to make the perfect tortilla to accompany your meal.
The El Lago probiotic tortilla is prepared in a similar way as our flour tortillas. We use healthy canola oil instead of shortening and add a specially formulated probiotic that gives you the same benefit as a cup of yogurt. The tortillas are baked and cooled before packaging and should be refrigerated after opening. As with our flour tortillas there is no need to reheat these tortillas but heating does bring out the best in all tortillas.
El Lago corn tortillas start out as 100% Non GMO real corn. The corn is soaked with lime overnight and then stone ground into masa. The masa is cut into tortillas, baked and cooled. Each tortilla is checked for uniformity and packaged in small one-pound bags or our large 4-pound bags for families. Our customers seek out this homemade tortilla flavor. This comfort food is a reminder of how things used to be made.
