Shagbark’s Tortilla Chips are known across Ohio for their unmistakably rich corn flavor, along with the hardiness that allows them to stand up to the thickest dips, guacamole, or salsa, or the most savory soups. In the opening week of the Upper Arlington Whole Foods store in Columbus, Ohio, Shagbark’s Corn Tortilla Chips were the number one selling grocery item and still remain among the top sellers.
Shagbark chips are made the traditional way, by soaking the corn overnight in a solution of water and rock-lime. This solution is the ancient method called, “Nixtamal”, which turns the corn into a delicious superfood by beginning the digestion process and unlocking corn's niacin and other nutrients, making them more bioavailable. Laperla Tortilla Factory, in Toledo, Ohio, has brought their their expert food production skills to Shagbark product development using our organic hybrid corn grown at Clinehens Organic Farm in Shelby County, Ohio.
