Why we Started Ula
Ula Tortila was founded after we searched searched far and wide (or at least around the town of Charlottesville) for a corn tortilla that met all of our family's needs, but came up empty handed. No tortilla we encountered was healthy, tasty, and all natural.
That's why we started making our tortillas fresh using certified organic, non-GMO corn, which is processed using the ancient technique of nixtamalization. Nixtamalization involves cooking and soaking our corn in a solution of lime (calcium hydroxide) and water overnight. This process increases flavor, aroma, and nutrition while eliminating toxins.
After rinsing we grind the corn in our stone grinder which produces masa, the dough with which we make our tortillas.
We take pride in the process, used for millenia in ancient Mesoamerican civilizations, and hope that you enjoy our tortillas as much as we do!

Ula Tortillas are not just a vehicle for your favorite foods, they add flavor and depth to all of your meals.
My wife and I both agree...unquestionably the best we have ever tasted! We will be spreading the word :)
Your tortillas are simply amazing. Having moved here from Texas (and quite the connoisseur of tortillas), I was pleasantly surprised to run across your product at the local Whole Foods. Thank you for producing a heathy, tasty alternative to the junk product out there. You have a lifelong customer. Delicious.
Nixtamalization is at the heart of why our tortillas are so delicious and healthy. Not only does the process make them tastier, it also releases vital nutrients from the corn. You can read all about the process by clicking the button below.
