Why maize? Maize (corn) is a very ancient cereal. By grinding the kernels, you obtain flour for polenta. Melagrani produces this flour in two varieties: yellow and white. We grow and harvest maize flour as in the ‘good old days’. We harvest maize ears by hand: then, we husk and plait them so that they dry slowly in the open air before we shell and grind them.
Maize is a good source of calcium, phosphorus and has excellent digestibility. This is why it is ideal for children.
It has a good taste and is nutritious, as well as gluten-free so that it can also be eaten by coeliac sufferers. It is considered to have excellent soothing effects and is suitable for those who have an accelerated metabolism.
Maize is also rich in potassium salts that have diuretic and detoxifying effects.
