Given how many factors it affects — from masa's workability, color, aroma, shelf life and flavor — cal is a small ingredient with big implications. As a general rule of thumb, we suggest beginning with a 1% ratio of cal to the total weight of corn (e.g., 100 lb of corn : 1 lb of cal).
Caution: Prolonged contact with hydrated lime may cause irritation burns to wet skin. In case of contact with eyes, flush thoroughly with water and call a physician. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
