Produce Express is featuring specialty Flour and Corn Tortillas from Santa Fe Trading Company. The company is owned and operated by the Madrid family and is located in South Sacramento near the metropolitan Airport. Following a successful restaurant career in New Mexico and Sacramento, Andy and Lola Madrid started a tortilla business in 1983, initially producing six tortillas per minute. They created a line of specialty tortillas in 1993 and saw production rise to 5,000 tortillas a day. Currently, the business is in the hands of their children and they are producing up to 35,000 flavored tortillas per day.
The Madrids emphasize the healthy aspects of their tortillas; low fat, no food coloring, cholesterol free, no trans fat. They use 100% soybean oil, whole wheat flour and literally bake fresh ingredients-garlic, onions, spinach, tomatoes, jalapenos, cilantro-into their flour tortillas.
Santa Fe also offers a unique corn tortilla-abuelita's or grandma's tortilla. These tortillas have intense corn flavor and are advertised as the 'closest to homemade as you can get.'
