A little history !
Already cultivated in Central America 7000 years ago, venerated by the
Aztecs and the Mayas, maize arrives in Spain with Christopher Columbus
It is found in the region of Venice around 1530 where, ignorance of its origin, it takes the name of "wheat of Turkey". It crosses northern Italy and the Alps to give the polenta.
Corn was considered for its yield as a miracle plant. In order not to lose anything, the grapes were dried in the bread oven and one day, no doubt, some were roasted.
Finely ground, this corn yielded a fragrant flour and a nutty-flavored bouillie called "les gaudes". It was then the name given to the porridge made with various flours (wheat, oats, buckwheat, millet).
Since 1990, the gaudes are made with organic corn. Consuming organic flour means :
* Use of organic corn.
* Respectful processes.
* Non-use of GMOs.
* Non-use of chemicals.
