Tortillas

5 posts in this topic

Anyone know what Corn Tortillas brands really are gluten-free? I live in Dallas,Texas and LOVE Mexican food and the one thing I really miss that I have not been able to replace is tortillas. Anyone know of any alternative flour tortillas? If so, where do you get them?

Thanks for the help. I look forward to enjoying some yummy Mexican soon. ;)

hey lisa-

in texas of all places, it shouldn't be too hard to find basic tortillas. the old fashioned ingredients in corn tortillas are corn and lime. If your grocery store only has chemically enhanced ones, maybe a local mexican grocery? Probably super cheap there too. good luck.

I haven't seen too many that were NOT gluten-free.... Hmm... I have gotten ones from Trader Joe's and Wild Oats, but that's just because I haven't shopped at a Ralphs(Kroger), Vons (Safeway), or Pavillions in months due to the strike... As the other person said, ingredients are usually just corn and lime (sometimes a bit of salt...), so if your store is only carrying chemically altered ones, look around at other stores.

Thanks guys my confidence is building. I was afraid of cross contamination if the production plant made flour tortillas as well, but sounds like from experience you guys have been able to trust just the ingredients.

Thanks! Sounds like I 'm having Mexican for dinner tonight!

I took an interest in this subject since I use corn tortillas for my son. I usually spread peanut butter on it or place some bologna on it, and he rolls it up. Being somewhat new at this and having thought they were gluten-free, I pulled them out of the refrigerator and looked again. To ease my mind, I went on their website (the La Banderita corn tortillas) www.olemexicanfoods.com, and they do state that their corn tortillas are gluten-free!!

Hope this info helps you.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
