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. In this case it is usually seasoned with cocoa, cinnamon or anise. Alternatively, it can be fermented to produce tesgüino, a low-alcohol beer that is drunk with lemon, salt and piquín chili. Among the benefits of pinole is that it provides minerals such as iron, phosphorus and magnesium; reduces the risk of anemia. 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. In their competitions of distances greater than 60 kilometers it is the food they take.

Pinole is a traditional Mexican food made from ground toasted maize, which can be used to make a hot or cold beverage by mixing it with water or milk. The amount of water used to make pinole can vary depending on personal preference and the desired consistency of the final product.

As a general rule, a ratio of about 1:2 or 1:3 pinole to water is a good starting point. This means using about 1 cup of pinole for every 2-3 cups of water. However, you can adjust this ratio to make the pinole thicker or thinner depending on your taste.

It's important to note that pinole can be quite filling, so using too much pinole or too little water may result in a very thick and heavy drink that is difficult to consume. Start with a smaller amount of pinole and gradually add more until you find the right balance for your taste.
