Zea mays. Domesticated by Meso-Americans along the Rio Balsas of Mexico by at least 6,700 BC, corn is a staple food and has many ritual uses. Various kernel colors are selected for ceremonies and feast foods, and pollen is collected for ceremonial and medicinal purposes.

Flour corn kernels are composed largely of soft starch, white in color.  Kernel color is found in a thin outer layer that has a slightly dull opaque appearance.  Flour corn can be easily ground in a fine meal for bread, piki, or atole.  Flour varieties harvested in the milk stage are used for chicos and elotes.  Flour types are also the best for parching, as they are not too hard.
