How is Hominy different than corn?

Hominy starts as corn but gets transformed by nixtamalization, leading to a distinct taste, texture, and larger size.

The soaking process in nixtamalization makes the kernels swell up. This process also softens the kernels, making them easier to digest and to cook with.

Hominy’s roots go back to ancient Mesoamericam, it was a vital food source for Aztecs and Mayans. It has been a staple in Mexican and Native American cuisines ever since.
