How do you choose your ingredients?
We have gone to the end of the Earth to find the best ingredients for our tortillas. The almonds, avocados, chia, coconut, and cassava that go into them have been selected to best exemplify how these ingredients should be grown and used in food. In order to accomplish this, our products have been sourced with three objectives in mind:
•Accessibility: At Siete we believe that all people should be able to enjoy Mexican meals. We've designed our products to allow people with a variety of diets, dietary restrictions, and backgrounds to gather around the table.
•Integrity: The ingredients that we source have been chosen to preserve the purity and natural essence of our products. We care about what we put in our bodies and, because of that, we've gone to great lengths to create a natural and healthy product that we would eat ourselves and feed our friends and family. You will not find chemical flavoring additives or genetically modified ingredients in our tortillas.
•Taste: We want our tortillas to be the best-tasting, I-didn't-know-it-was-healthy, mind-blowingly-delicious tortillas that you've ever eaten. We're constantly in the kitchen, taste testing new ingredient options, and fine tuning our recipes to take you to tortilla nirvana.
Long story, short: when you bite into a Siete tortilla you should be proud of what you're eating, be able to eat it—guilt-free—and you should love the taste so much that you tell all your friends, or at least scream to the heavens.
On each product page and in the ingredients field above, you'll find links to ingredient-specific pages that contain information and peer reviewed research regarding the ingredients that we use. To be clear, this isn’t to claim specific health benefits–we’re not scientists or dieticians–but to present the existing research and give you all a window into the thought process underpinning our use of these ingredients.
