Pinole is a traditional Mexican food made from toasted and ground maize (corn). Corn is usually soaked in lime water (nixtamalized) before being ground, which makes it more digestible and improves its nutritional value. The resulting powder can be mixed with water, milk, or other liquids to make a thick, nutritious drink, or used as a flour substitute in baked goods.

Pinole has been a staple food in Mexico for centuries and was often used by indigenous people as a portable source of sustenance while hunting or traveling. It is still widely consumed today and valued for its high fiber, protein, and antioxidant content. In addition, pinole does not contain gluten and can be a good option for people with celiac disease or gluten intolerance.

This pre-Hispanic food from Latin America can be eaten on its own, as a sweet; or serve as a base for a drink of the same name, which is drunk hot or cold.

Its fiber is ideal to combat constipation, in the same way, it improves the functioning of the kidneys and blood circulation. Likewise, pinole and chia is also known as a mixture famous for being used by the Tarahumara or Rarámuris, a native people of Mexico, settled in the territory of the state of Chihuahua.
