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?

    • Today was the big day when I went to the GI and this is the first time I have felt heard and taken care of.  I told him about the two celiac blood tests  (in my first post) normal, he said that often happens, even with people who do have celiac and he needed to see the report and pictures from my endoscope.    I had filled out the appropriate Kaiser paperwork for Sutter to send all my medical records, but they ended up sending a disc with records to me, which Sutter said they could not use.  We also talked about gluten sensitivity v. celiac, and he said a lot of people are sensitive to gluten even if they don't have celiac. He said that my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which can be caused by any number of things.  He asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which limits certain foods and requires no gluten. He said my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which he said can be caused by any number of things, including gluten sensitivity.  He has asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which has restricted foods as well as no gluten because most gluten products have wheat in them.  So, since I am planning on going gluten free anyway, and I don't want another endoscope or blood tests if absolutely necessary, I am going to try the FODMAP diet and see what happens. I filled a consent form at the GI office today to have all my records sent to him so he can view the endoscope pathology report and photos.  I have an appointment with a Registered Dietician on September 30, and follow up appointment the GI in 4 months. 
    • gluten-free andee, according to an article on celiac.com  that talks about this subject see this link http://www.celiac.com/articles/24406/1/Celiac-Diease-and-Other-Autoimmune-Diseases-Equals-Low-Inflammatory-Diet/Page1.html Quoting the author "In the author's personal experience, a gluten-free diet has many limitations. The reactivity between alpha gliadin and corn, millet, oats, rice and dairy has been denounced as invalid by gastroenterologists and celiac disease researchers. While at a medical school in Missouri, biopsies did not show improvement in villous atropy until all alpha gliadin sources and corn, millet, rice and oats were removed from the diet."  Note this research is two years old but hilites the problem with non-gluten rice protein that you are having. It is the alpha gliadin sources that it causing the cross reactivity you are experiencing when you eat rice protein's. She says quoting "Celiac disease has gotten the most attention in antibody research, but the current data on cross-reactivity of antibodies is allowing a better understanding of gluten sensitivity. Antigen reactivity to alpha-gliadin can trigger immune attacks on many individuals beyond those with positive DQ 2, DQ 8 and TTG test results. She goes on to say "A low inflammatory diet customized to each person through testing for cross-reactivity or elimination diet protocols is needed to restore a state of health and well-being."  which sounds exactly like what you are doing. If you are still having problems after elminating rice a 30 day elimination of all the alpha gliadin proteins might be in order.  Corn is a common reactivity problem I hear with a gluten allergy from my friends as well as the obvious lactose problems that can be common among celiacs.  But rarely do you hear Rice allergy's brought up in context of a gluten allergy. I am glad you are making progress on finding your triggers. Read the whole article for yourself to see if there are nuggets of truth I did not highlight in my response. I hope this is helpful. Good luck on your journey to health. Posterboy,
    • One other thing - you might be able to tolerate some dairy if it's only the FODMAPs problem. I discovered that many cheese such as cheddar have effectively no lactose. And my wife sometimes makes 24 hour yoghurt, which also has effectively no lactose. Those have been fine for my tummy.
