Tortilla Wraps

21 posts in this topic

Hello

I'm new to this so hope this is the correct forum for this kind of question. Apologies if not!

I have been gluten free for quite a while and so have many good recepies for things to make food more interesting, however one thing that I really miss is Mexican Food, especially Fajitas!

Although there are corn tortilas that you can buy, these still contain wheat flour and so are useless.

I wonder if anyone knows where you can buy gluten free soft tortilla wraps of if anyone has a recipe to make plain ones?

I would really appreciate it!

Many thanks

Joy Joy

I have not tried them, but members of my Gluten-Intolerance group say that French Meadow Bakery has the best gluten free tortillas around. Their gluten-free tortilla is This product is casein-Free, Gluten-Free, Gluten-Free, Lactose Free, Peanut Free.

If you Google French Meadow Bakery, you'll find the link to their webpage. I've had their gluten-free brownies (sold on their web page -- I had them at Disney World), and they are excellent.

While we're on the subject: Does anyone know of a good ABSOLUTELY GLUTEN-FREE comercially produced corn tortilla?

You guys are making me paranoid! I buy corn tortillas all the time. So I just went to my fridge to re-read the ingredients on my corn tortillas. I have a pkg of El Maizal tortillas and the ingredients say "ground corn treated with lime water, sodium propionate (to preserve freshness), cellulose gum, fumaric acid, propionate acid and sodium phosphate (to preserve freshness). Is there gluten in any of that??? I haven't noticed it ever bothering me. I did just pick up a pkg of Azteca corn tortillas because they didn't seem to have my usual El Maizal brand. I'm looking at the ingredients on it and it says "stone ground corn flour (processed with Lim), water, fumaric acid, cellulose gum, guar gum, potassium sorbate and calcium propionate (preservatives). I am usually a little suspicious of any brands that I know also have other products, as I know Azteca also does flour tortillas, but there's no disclaimers on this about facilities or anything. Any thoughts on my brands??

French Meadow "flour" tortilas are deicious. They're just tiny, so you have to make lots of burritios :P Sonoma brand Ivory Teff Wraps are a close approximation of flour tortillas, and they're BIG.

Mission brand corn tortillas have corn and water, and we eat them all the time without issue.

La Tortilla Factory makes wonderful gluten free tortillas. Try the Ivory Teff wraps, they are made from teff and millet flours. They are the size of a flour tortilla, smell and taste similar, and go well for use as a wrap or in making enchiladas. They can be a little dry. To fix that, microwave them for a few seconds with a damp paper towel. I find mine at Hy-Vee, but Whole Foods is also listed as a retailer.

All of the corn tortillas I see at my store are nothing more than corn, lime, and water. Mission even say "gluten free" on the package.

You might try looking around more at different brands, or making your own (they aren't that complicated, really, and taste 100 times better).

I buy the gluten free rice tortilla shells (the sell them in the freezer section at Superstore in Canada). They are the same size as the regular soft tortillas and are great for burritos and enchiladas as they are softer than the corn varieties.

Do they still say it on the bag? I read that the statement no longer appears.

"Gluten-free" still appear on the tortilla chips at COSTCO -- they are made by Mission. That, I know, because I just bought some. :)

Unfortunately, I reacted to them. :(

I'm okay with corn products only if they are not procesed in a plant that also processes wheat.

I'm going to try Bob's Red Mill gluten-free masa. Regular, store bought masa has given me problems so far, alas. Has anyone tried Bob's Masa?

I buy Food for Life gluten-free soft shell tortillas. They are available in the health food section of Superstores in Atlantic Canada. I see they are also available on line at the Gluten Free Mall.

Perhaps it is the corn that is bothering you, not gluten contamination?

Food for Life makes brown rice based tortillas.

Good point, tarnalberry. I thought that, too . . . but I kept experimenting, and I am happy to post that I am fine with organic, non-GMO corn. I am also fine with organic, non-GMO polenta, cornmeal, etc. I also do well with Corn Thins (they are also organic, non-GMO).

So, maybe in addition to gluten, I also have a sensitivity to genetically modified corn. Tarnalberry, thank you SO MUCH for sparking my realization of this possibility! I wonder if people who have reactions to corn have them because they are eating genetically modified corn, and their bodies cannot handle it. So many of us become sensitive to other foods--it might be true?

Has anyone else here found they can eat organic, non-GMO corn but not genetically modified corn? I'd love to know! (For those new to non-GMO: If a product isn't marked as being non-GMO, it is most probably is genetically modified--especially if manufactured in the United States.)

As memory serves, Bob's Red Mill masa is also non-GMO, which is why I'm excited to try it.

I NEED MY CORN TORTILLAS!

I'm so happy for this thread! Thank you to Joy Joy for starting it. :)

Hi and welcome!!

Check out http://www.sandwichpetals.com

I found out about them from another forum, ordered a box, and my whole family is hooked.

They're made from 10 gluten free grains and are super healthy.

Each box you order has 3 flavors of wraps: spinach garlic, agave grain(my favorite!) and chimayo chile

On Mondays you can order 1 box and get 1 free. 72 wraps total for $25 including shipping...did I mention I'm addicted?

Anyway, they're super good and we make enchiladas, burritos, mini pizzas, and quesadillas with them...you may want to order some and give them a shot! Good luck!!

I wasn't at all happy with the additional information this company asks you to provide at the end of the order -- weird, specific credit card info. I left the site because I was unsure. I was very sorry to do this because I wanted to take advantage of the 2 for 1 Monday offer, but frankly, it really creeped me out.

Please convince me I am wrong. Thanks.

We've ordered from them twice, I'm not sure why they ask for the additional info, as other sites don't, but it's supposed to be for verification of your card. We've done it twice with no problems, though! You could email to get some more info. They have a contact form on their site. I was a little unsure about it, too, but we've had no problems with billing! :)

We tried some kind of Teff wrap but didn't like it at all. Daughter sometimes likes the rice tortillas, but sometimes not. I have yet to see corn tortillas with wheat in them.

If they're asking for the security code on the back of the card, that's pretty common, even among major online retailers. It's to verify that you have the card in your possession, and that the number wasn't read off of something else. (Not sure how useful it is, 'cause it needs security too, but that's the goal.)

I'm used to the security code thing. This was a page of info after I put in my credit card number -- never had that happen before now.

Hello, everyone,

I think, this is my first or second posting on this forum - it is nice to see so many posts related to glutein free diet. I have a question. Say, you have bought a glutein free meal /bread/item from the grocery store and you have reacted to it. What symptoms would prime you to think that you have digested some glutein?

I am very curious... What are the IMMEDIATE sypmtoms of your glutein contamination?

Thanks.

That sounds like a really good deal, except I live by myself ... my folks and my bf sometimes eat the gluten-free foods with me, but that's still a lot. Do they do ok in the freezer?

    • healthy bread recipe?
      Eat what you eat at lunch or dinner.  I am happy with a fried hamburger patty, fish, or chicken (I know it needs to be fresh or frozen for the histamine diet).  Yes, I eat veggies for breakfast!   Wanted to add that I was glutened in July (GI ordered follow-up antibodies testing and it was high)  and it took me 3 months to recover.  Picked up a histamine intolerance and became lactose intolerant again.  Luckily, when I healed, the histamine thing went away (or  Diminished ) and the lactose intolerance resolved.    I was getting hives, rashes and itching (not DH), vomiting, etc.  So, her intolerances may be just temorary!  
    • Could this be celiac or is it really just IBS?
      Are you sure you had the complete celiac panel?  Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)     -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)   Here is more information from a reputable site (and not just info from a crazy cyclist on the Internet!):   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/   IBS, in my opinion, means "I Be Stumped!"  It is just a cop out!  So is the "stressed" thing.     I also had my GB out too.   It was a non-functioning (0% per HIDA scan), no stones, and rotting.     You seem to have many celiac disease symptoms.  Verify (obtain copies of your lab tests) to see if you got the complete panel. You might just have had the TTG IGA and TTG IGG tests.  Good for screening but it does not catch all celiacs.  My TTG tests are always negative even on follow-up testing.  The DGP test catches a positive for me.  My biopsies revealed moderate to severe damage.  If my celiac-savvy GI did not order the complete panel, my celiac disease diagnosis would never have been caught.   if celiac disease is really ruled out, research mast cell disorders.  The flushing and GI upset sound familiar!  You can have more than one thing going on!  But I would put my money on celiac disease!            
    • tightness in throat after eating gluten?
      I've noticed that if I accidentally eat gluten, for the next few days I have this tightness in my throat. It feels like my throat is closing. It's not constant, but comes and goes throughout the next 1-3 days. My hands have also been itchy. Is this a normal symptom for celiac or gluten intolerance, or could it possibly be an allergy? I haven't been tested or diagnosed with celiac or anything yet, so I'm still not entirely sure. All I know is that gluten makes me very sick.. But especially with the itchiness and tight throat.. I'm allergic to acetaminophen and my reaction is similar, so it just makes me wonder. What do you think?
    • Diagnosis and Test Results
      I am sorry that you are sick!  😔.  I think you need to find out which celiac antibody tests were given.  Often just the TTG Is ordered for initial screening.  This test catches most, but not all celiacs (like me!)   You also need to see if they gave you the igA deficency test too.   Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)   -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)     http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You can go gluten free, but knowing if you have an autoimmune disease is helpful.  celiac disease is genetic (you have the genes, but so does 30% of the population and that's why the gene test is used only to exclude celiac disease and not diagnose it).   All family members should be tested even if they are symptom free.   I hope you figure it out and I am sorry that you had such a horrible experience.  
    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      My friend, I'm sorry to hear of your pain. I don't know if mercury is related, but I will give you my brief experience. I went through so many health issues, medications, and dr's and nobody could find anything wrong with me, but I knew something was wrong. I've been through many doctors, shots, pills, etc and nothing helped. For me it all came down to gluten. I had blood tests that shown the antibodies and the endoscopy that proved I had celiac, which I don't think is needed. If your body makes the antibodies I can't help to believe you have it. Anyway, long story short. If you are sick, you are sick and if a doctor can't find the reason, move on to a new doctor. Celiac, at least for me was simple. Stop eating gluten and every other health problem goes away. I have 30 + year old amalgam fillings and I feel amazing as long as I don't put anything in my mouth that isn't naturally gluten free, which means I only eat meat and vegetables. Our bodies are all different. I guess my only advice to you is if you're sick, your sick. Nobody lives inside your body but you and you know best if you feel better. Don't be afraid to stand up for yourself.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
