Knowledge about the cultivation and processing of maize has been passed down from generation to generation and this knowledge has grown along with the modern advancements in the production and packaging processes. This has enabled exporters to send maize and maize flour, as well as its many by-products, to countries around the world!

Maize is the most versatile, nutritional and affordably priced balanced food group. One of the lesser-known, but just as nutritious products manufactured from corn, is maize flour. When the corn is ground into a finer product it becomes maize flour, which is the replacement for wheat flour and found in kitchens throughout the world where it is used in all kinds of cooking as well as baking and even in the making sauces. Unlike corn flour, which is created when the flour is reduced to pure starch which can then be combined with water to create a thickening agent, maize flour is created when the whole kernel of corn is milled into flour. Maize floor contains fat as well as protein and the grain can milled into different size such as super fine, fine, and course.

There are a few types of manufacturing processes which are used to produce maize flour, but the most common forms include steel ground processing or stone ground processing. Steel ground maize has the germ and the hull removed, while with stone ground processing the hull and germ are not removed so the flour has a little more flavour. The stone ground method produces a product which is far superior, tastier, richer and healthier than the refined steel grounded variety.
