We love chips, but we never liked the sluggish feeling after eating them. We looked everywhere for chips made with real, good-for-you ingredients, but we couldn't find any.
Our requirements were pretty simple:
The corn had to be naturally grown and the tortillas traditionally prepared.
They had to be free of inflammatory and artificial seed oils.
Since no one was making chips properly, we decided to do it ourselves. And thus, MASA — the first tortilla chips made with organic corn and grass-fed tallow — was born.
We care about the Crunch as much as our health, so we've worked hard to make sure that the MASA is more satisfying than any other chip on the market. We're proud of what we've made and we hope you enjoy it!

Feel Good. Look
Good. Snack Good.
Because there’s nothing worse than the post-Tostitos feeling.
“Nixtamalization” is an ancient process invented thousands of years ago by the Aztecs to improve the nutrition and digestibility of corn.
It involves boiling the corn with natural minerals from limestone, which makes the corn more digestible, neutralizes mycotoxins and anti-nutrients, and makes nutrients like Vitamin B3 more bioavailable.
The result is a healthier, tastier food that maximizes the nutrient potential of one of the world’s oldest crops.
