Corn and Specialty Ingredients
A product can only be as good as the ingredients that go into it. That’s why we’re so particular about the corn we buy. We purchase yellow and white corn directly from growers, analyzing each truckload for test weight, moisture, stress cracks and foreign materials.
Corn Masa Flour
We are your one-stop source for premium corn masa flour. We produce a variety of white, yellow and blends for many items from corn chips to table tortillas, and corn bread products.
Bunge emulsified shortenings are formulated with a unique emulsifying system that holds oil, shortening and water together to produce a moister product for a longer period of time. Use emulsified shortenings for cakes, icings, bread and yeast-raised doughs. Where ingredients become a valuable resource, we are there - helping our customers better serve theirs.

These products are extremely versatile, they will not burn, scorch or spatter. Add a prepared in butter taste to your sauteing, grilling and basting applications. Try it on popcorn, it's great!
Margarines and Buttery Spreads

Buttery spreads are trans fat free, provide fewer calories per serving than solid fats, like butter, and provide a rich source of heart-healthy unsaturated fat.
