Does anyone have any good suggestions on where to buy corn tortillas? I'm in Saskatchewan and all I can find is wheat flour tortillas with one exception-Que Pasa but the only ones I can find are quite small. Any suggestions?

beerlow...I am also in Sask, and can only find the small corn tortillias at the local Safeway.

I am going to Nutters soon and will try to look there. If you see any thing let me know.

DS loves wraps and burritos, and so do I. I would love to be able to make some, but those small little shells make it tricky. (DS is gluten eater btw)

I hope we can find something soon.

I bought some at the Co-Op (Calgary). There were smallish, and they also fell apart when I tried to roll them. I found the corn flavour to be quite overpowering and basically ruined the wrap for me. I gave up on it and eat other stuff.

Corn tortillas just aren't as flexible as wheat ones. You can never wrap and fold, like a burrito or a wrap. Most often they are made into enchiladas, are fried, or just warmed and eaten on the side with a meal. The biggest ones you will find are a lot smaller than the big wheat ones that wrap so well.

That doesn't seem right. Aren't corn tortillas widely used in the US and Mexico? When I've been in both countries I have had large corn tortillas. I know corn tortillas become easier to manipulate when you warm them up.

These ones are flexible like the flour ones, just very small, and hard to manipulate into wraps.

I buy mainly Manny's corn tortillas at Safeway. I've also eaten Grimm's and Western Family. They are all small, but Manny's are the thickest.

Manny's are ok for rolling, but I find them rather thick and coarse.

"Wraps" and burritos are always made from flour tortillas. Corn tortillas are used to make rolled things, like enchiladas, and fried things, like chips, tacos, and sopa secas. They just don't have the flexibility that wheat gluten gives flour tortillas, which you can fold without cracking.

You can roll filling into a corn tortilla, but I think they taste better cooked.

Daxin, beerlow, where in SK are you? I'm in SK too!

It would help if it wasnt glutened right now lol .. At this moment I cant remember where I found them! They were small ones, but if you microwave them they actually roll. I also like the Corn Tacos that superstore sells, microwaves those and they are good too haha.

I do most of my shopping at Mom's Nutrition (S'toon) or Old Fashion Foods--the big one on Albert North before the huge Walmart in Regina...so it was probably at one of those locations.

We should all chat :P it'd be cool to know some Celiac's in Sask!

I work in the field and away from home and corn tortillas are my sandwich bread. They get pretty gross tasting by the end of the week. But Manny's are filling.

Hey guess what guys? I was in Regina today, went into that smaller Old Fashion Foods when you are just coming into Regina (like, by Victoria Square Mall there somewhere) and they had brown rice tortillas, the 10" ones, they come 6 in a pack.

I only bought 3 and havent ate them yet, but when I do I'll post in here what they are like! Or you guys should just go buy some yourself and post so I know what they are like lol

That is not fair. I have not seen brown rice tortillas in Alberta yet. I was so close to the Sask. border, I gues I should have crossed it and gone shopping.

I found corn tortillas in our local Co-op food store, but they tasted horrible and fell apart.

Now I make my own and they taste good. I can wrap them but mostly I just fold them in half with filling inside.

      I'm afraid to say I don't really think it is normal Richie, but I do recognise the shakiness and nausea you speak of, as I've been there. (Pre-diagnosis), my shakiness was so bad, my muscles were very weak and couldn't walk without the aid of a walking stick, my ferritin levels were so very, very low and had to take iron tablet every day for months. My hair was falling out, I had really bad digestional issues, amongst other things. I think you should lay off the coffee and the barley drink and all gluten/wheat, because until you do, your body is not going to repair itself properly. Damage is done to the gut even if you don't have gastrointestinal issues, as not all coeliacs have symptoms, but the damage is still being done to the gut, which in turn can cause osteoporosis, other auto-immune diseases and also cancer.  If you ever get a test for coeliac disease, you need to be eating gluten/wheat for at least 6 weeks on a daily basis in order for it to set of the immune response in your body, which will cause a positive result. (Blood tests are less reliable than endoscopy with biopsies - bare this in mind).  You may decide of course not to have a test for coeliacs because of how ill it could make you feel by eating gluten etc. In which case, you need to avoid all gluten and wheat forever! (By the way another symptom of coeliac disease is dairy/lactose intolerance- which could be causing your nausea). Sorry to be blunt, but you need to know the dangers and there's no point in sugar coating it. What is your fasting blood test for?

    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      I know there has been a lot of suggestions to go and talk to you doctor already - so I am on repeat - to get the best / accurate results - gluten should be eaten prior to the scope being done.    I hope that you can get/ or already have been able to get the appointment bumped up  - keep calling the doctors office and keep pressing them to move your appointment closer - I have appointments move up many times!

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
