Description

Sonora Heritage Soft White Wheat, also known as Sonora Blanca (Spanish), has persisted in the rural villages of Sonora Mexico since the late 1600s. Over the years White Sonora Wheat prompted a shift in the use of flour tortillas over corn tortillas in the “Borderland Cuisine,” referring to the shared food culture of northwest Mexico and the southwest United States. Its cultural antiquity has inspired a resurgence of the crop. Artisanal bakers favor it due to its sweet, rich, buttery flavor, its low protein, and light, airy texture; making it particularly good for pastry and quick bread applications.  To learn about its cultural history and uses in Sonora Mexico we encourage you to watch Pati’s Mexican Table’s Tucson: Gateway to Sonora
