First ground by Native Americans in 5,000 BC, cornmeal is more truly “American” than New York pizza, BBQ, or apple pie. Indigenous Peoples, past and present, use it for both recipes and healing. Professor Torbert’s bright, lightweight variety pays homage to this tradition with a starchy, coarsely-ground cornmeal that’s delicious in crispy corn dishes while delivering a daily dose of orange corn antioxidants.

Professor Torbert's promotes food and nutrition security in both the U.S. and sub-Saharan Africa by partnering with local, sustainability-focused farmers.

How it does good

Growing brighter corn for a brighter future

A full stomach doesn't necessarily mean a nutrient filled one, especially in developing countries where vitamin-dense diets aren’t always available. That's why Professor Torbert's is using nature, not GMOs, to help. Their unique “orange corn” uses carotenoids (think carrots) to bring much-needed Vitamin A to a staple crop that's easy, cheap, and safe to grow. By sharing it with African farmers committed to environmentally-friendly practices, Professor Torbert's keeps people healthy and communities growing. This process of “biofortification” is expected to help over a billion people by 2030, and Professor Torbert’s is the first to bring global awareness to it by commercializing a crop.

About the Brand

Professor Torbert's Orange Corn

Professor Torbert and his son Evan co-founded NutraMaize, establishing the first significant biofortification effort in a high-income country. They work to bring vitamin rich food to people at home and abroad. Most Americans don't get enough antioxidant carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin, which are critical for maintaining eye health, and—you guessed it—abundant in Orange Corn. Which leads us to the launch of Professor Torbert's Orange Corn, the vibrant delicious stuff you see today.
