This may sound silly, but I am so excited about today's tortilla discovery. I've been eating yellow corn tortillas, and I like them, but the flavor is pretty strong. Today I noticed white corn tortillas at the market -- also labeled gluten-free. They are so much milder in flavor and less hearty in texture. To me they are much more versatile, since they don't overwhelm the filling so much.

I may be the last one to figure this out, but if not, try white corn tortillas!

What brand? I have been buying Aztec I think, but then I saw on here somewhere that Mission has a dedicated line so I bought them - they are even labeled gluten-free. But, I don't like them!! I was so bummed when I tasted them - I don't like the texture or the taste. Maybe I'll give these white ones a try - once you tell me the brand. :D

They are Mission and are labeled gluten-free. I was buying a different brand of yellow (also labeled gluten-free), but at my market last night I could only find Mission -- yellow or white. So, I don't know how these compare to yellow Missions, but they are alot better than the other yellow brand (Tortilla Factory, maybe?) They still are not identical to a flour tortilla, but maybe midway between a yellow corn and a flour ;)

Good luck! If you try them, I hope you like them!

I emailed El Milagro - based out of Chicago -- and here is their response:

El Milagro products Corn and Flour are run in different machinary all the time, in order to avoid cross contamination.

Our corn tortillas are gluten free.

As an FYI:

In addition to manufacturing tortillas, they also have restaurants in the Chicagoland area, Austin, TX and Chamblee, GA.

Here is their website:

I eat El Milagro Tortillas, they taste the most authentic to me - Does any one know if these are o.k.?

Thanks! So glad to hear this!!! I have known for a while that I wheat-sensitive, but only recently discovered I have celiac. I LOVE El Milagro, both yellow and white! They are a staple, since I use them in place of bread for several things. They have the best flavor and texture when cooked properly!

...it's lunch time and I think I just talked myself into a grilled cheese sandwich! =)

I've never even thought about trying white corn tortillas! I can't stand the yellow after switching over from flour. Thank you for the idea! I'll have to give them a try.

Don't forget that this thread is five years old, and the gluten free status of any food can change in the meantime - always check your labels or with the manufacturer. :rolleyes:

Does anyone know about Vallarta supermarket brand tortillas? I didn't even think about shared equipment. I have been having some issues that might be from being glutened and I have been eating them lately. If no one knows I will try to give them a call to see if I can find the answer.

Even before I was gluten free I have always preferred the yellow ones. It's interesting how everyone has such different tastes. My grocery store always has about 5 times the amount of white ones on the shelf and I am bummed whenever they are out of yellow and I need to get the white ones.
