Tortillas Organic
The tortilla (Spanish pronunciation: [torti?a]) is a flatbread made from corn or wheat. The word "tortilla" originally comes from the Spanish word "torta", which means "round cake".[1] When Spanish explorers discovered an unleavened flatbread made by the Aztecs, they called it "tortilla" (little torta). Tortillas have been used for many centuries, particularly in Mexico and more recently in the United States. The tortilla is consumed all year round. Tortillas are most commonly prepared with meat to make dishes such as tacos, burritos, and enchiladas. Tortillas have increased in popularity in other countries, especially in the United States and Europe as Mexican cuisine has been introduced to those countries. Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. Before a product can be labeled "organic," a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified.
