The cornmeal has a low glycemic index, unsaturated fat, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, and zinc which make corn chips rich in vitamins and minerals.The nixtamalization used for the alkali treatment of the cornmeal breaks down the hemicelluloses content and enhance the nutritional quality of the corn chips.    Tortilla corn chips are produced from the white corn, yellow corn, whole wheat flour, and blue cornmeal along with flavorings and seasoning to enhance the palatability. For the processing of tortilla chips, the ancient Aztec technology is still used along with the modern extrusion process.
