People still wanted their tortillas and eventually this became a source of new capitalism. The tortilla making machines were a way for women to spend less time making tortillas and it was profitable for the people making them. I understand that food is very strongly connected to culture and that attached to food is a history, rituals, and family traditions. I am not of Mexican decent but from the readings we have done, I think it is safe to say that the tortilla is an important part of Mexican’s food culture and identity.
