Food For Life Tortillas

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried the torillas from Food For Life? I'm still new on the diet and these would help out tons if they are any good. I did not care for the rice bread from EnerG and wondered if these would have the same snady texture.

Many, many thanks (as always) for everyones thoughts. I learn so much with every discussion. :D

They're not the same as regular flour tortillas, but they do take a spot that isn't filled by corn tortillas. They're not half bad for some purposes, but you'll have to see how you like them. (Don't forget to heat them in the microwave. I like to use wet towels around them, myself.)

I tried them and liked them alot. Nothing like flour tortillas though. My expectations are never high when it comes to food so I'm probably the least picky eater here. I like everything. You may hate them.

Thanks for the heads up. I usually heat tortillas in the oven wrapped in foil. My microwave makes them tough.

I think I'll give these a try since I used them for everything before.

you're probably going to want to find your own recipe to make ones like what you used to use, and they won't have the same shelf life. :-(

I'm hoping to wean myself from needing them but they are just so convenient. I'm rolling my kitchen over to all gluten-free slowly but surely and my family is having to get used to many new tastes. Guess I thought if I could at least keep the look the same, they might not notice so much.

I'll start looking for a recipe as well. Too bad I don't live in the West or South anymore. I'm sure I could have easily found a Mexican bakery to do the hard work for me. Nothing like fresh made tortillas.

I haven't tried Food for Life wraps, but Mission makes corn tortillas that say "gluten free" right on the package. Also, Trader Joes has corn tortillas. I had some last night when we made fajitas. I also use them to make sandwich wraps for work.

I tried the Food For Life Tortillas and they came frozen and I could not get them apart without tearing them, which made it impractical for burritos or any other kind of rolled snack... if anyone has any ideas how to thaw them and keep them from sticking let me know.

Every time I have gotten them, they have had sheets of wax paper between them. From what I read on the boards, this was something they did a few months after they rolled them out. I've never seen them in a freezer section (just refrigerator) but with the wax paper, they come apart just fine. You might try taking a look at a package the next time you're at the store and see if you see the wax paper.
