Great Tortilla Wraps

Recommended Posts

Today I went to my local bulk food store (locally owned and not affiliated with any other stores) because I ran out of light buckwheat flour. Because I don't eat anything with flours/carbs very often, I don't go there more than once every two months or so.

I was in for a surprise. Last time I went, they had one freezer with gluten-free foods, and the bins with the gluten-free flours were mixed in with the bins for stuff with gluten, which I didn't like, and I had told the owner so. She listens, and really cares about her customers.

So, today I found that she now has one row of bins with ONLY gluten-free flours, the other bins are on the other side of the isle. She does have a sign (and has always had that) asking people to put the scoop right back into the container they took it out of and to never use it for another product to avoid cross-contamination.

So now there is even less chance of that happening. She also has new flours since I was there last, namely teff and corn flour (it is not corn starch, which is white, this is yellow).

Now there are two freezers with only gluten-free foods, one has all the new El Peto products, and the other the Kinnikinnik stuff mostly (by the way, Kinnikinnik won't make chocolate dipped doughnuts any more, they weren't able to get them for their last order and were told that they went out of production - who knows why).

Another thing I found were LaTortilla Factory Smart and Delicious, gluten-free wraps/tortillas. They are large and reasonably priced in comparison to what I can buy at my supermarket (all they have are corn tortillas that are small and expensive). These are made from ivory teff and millet.

My husband and I had them for supper tonight, and they were delicious.

They ARE made on shared lines. Here is the information so that you can make up your own mind whether you want to try them or not:

I absolutely love these tortillas. I prefer the light teff, not the dark. They roll up perfectly for lunch wraps, the only downside is that they do not currently carry them in any of my local stores. So if anyone's in Sacramento pester your favorite health food store managers so they start carrying them.

They have the Sonoma tortillas with light teff from La Tortilla Factory at my local grocery (Red Apple) and they are great! I so hated the rice flour kind, and sometimes corn doesn't work. These have fiber and seem much more nutritious.

These are great for wraps and for sandwich substitutes at picnics and such. They keep them in the freezer at my local store, which is ok because I would keep them there too and only pull out as many as I need to keep them fresh.
