gluten-free "flour" Style Tortilla Shells From Celiac Specialities

Recommended Posts

We tried another product from Celiac Specialities. Its their potatoe based white tortillas.

They are fantastic. First off they look like a flour tortilla, they are large, about 8 inches in diameter compared to a lot of gluten-free products which are 1/3 the original size.

They fold/roll OK. Its not perfect but they don't split in half. Best part is they taste great.

We've made thin crust pizza with them which is a huge bonus. Most gluten-free pizza crusts are tiny and expensive. These you get 4 in a pack for around $5.00. Same as the pizza crust but you get a lot more out of it usually enough for left overs.

Wev'e made Quessadilla's with them and truly you'd never know the difference between a flour one and this one.

Haven't tried Burrito's but I am going to try a Chimmichanga and see how that comes out.

One thing I will say about CS is they are a bit inconsistent. It is always good but there is a difference between products week to week. The Mock Rye is great but we get a dry loaf once in a while. The Onion Poppy Seed white bread is edible by itself and is usually very consistent. The flavored flat bread can go from OK to great.

Even the tortilla's some will roll/bend without breaking easier than others.

Its all excellent and really changed our diet but they do need some QC to get things more consistent.

I use the Food For Life brand - I love them for pizza. I used to use the Kinnikinnick brand but they are expensive AND they are very high calorie. I think one FforL brand has around 130 calories each....versus 500. What's more, they taste really good !

Are those the rice ones? We tried them but at our health food store they come frozen. Hard to get just one out of the package and have it be intact.
