In the 1960s P.A.N. Pre-Cooked Corn Meal was introduced by the Venezuelan company Alimentos Polar. As from 1950 onwards there was a migration move towards the cities going on in Venezuela this lead to change in lifestyle and traditions. The arduous process for making corn meal at home and the long cooking time proved incompatible with the new Venezuelan lifestyle. With Harina P.A.N. Pre-Cooked Corn Meal Venezuelans could make traditional dishes like arepas, bollitos, empanadas and hallacas easily and practically at home. The company’s latest factory in Greensville, Texas, distributes its certified gluten-free pre-cooked corn meal. Herewith once again Harina P.A.N. helps people who face a changing lifestyle, this time with making gluten-free dishes available and maintaining a healthy diet.
