Does anyone have any good suggestions on where to buy corn tortillas? I'm in Saskatchewan and all I can find is wheat flour tortillas with one exception-Que Pasa but the only ones I can find are quite small. Any suggestions?

beerlow...I am also in Sask, and can only find the small corn tortillias at the local Safeway.

I am going to Nutters soon and will try to look there. If you see any thing let me know.

DS loves wraps and burritos, and so do I. I would love to be able to make some, but those small little shells make it tricky. (DS is gluten eater btw)

I hope we can find something soon.

I bought some at the Co-Op (Calgary). There were smallish, and they also fell apart when I tried to roll them. I found the corn flavour to be quite overpowering and basically ruined the wrap for me. I gave up on it and eat other stuff.

Corn tortillas just aren't as flexible as wheat ones. You can never wrap and fold, like a burrito or a wrap. Most often they are made into enchiladas, are fried, or just warmed and eaten on the side with a meal. The biggest ones you will find are a lot smaller than the big wheat ones that wrap so well.

That doesn't seem right. Aren't corn tortillas widely used in the US and Mexico? When I've been in both countries I have had large corn tortillas. I know corn tortillas become easier to manipulate when you warm them up.

These ones are flexible like the flour ones, just very small, and hard to manipulate into wraps.

I buy mainly Manny's corn tortillas at Safeway. I've also eaten Grimm's and Western Family. They are all small, but Manny's are the thickest.

Manny's are ok for rolling, but I find them rather thick and coarse.

"Wraps" and burritos are always made from flour tortillas. Corn tortillas are used to make rolled things, like enchiladas, and fried things, like chips, tacos, and sopa secas. They just don't have the flexibility that wheat gluten gives flour tortillas, which you can fold without cracking.

You can roll filling into a corn tortilla, but I think they taste better cooked.

Daxin, beerlow, where in SK are you? I'm in SK too!

It would help if it wasnt glutened right now lol .. At this moment I cant remember where I found them! They were small ones, but if you microwave them they actually roll. I also like the Corn Tacos that superstore sells, microwaves those and they are good too haha.

I do most of my shopping at Mom's Nutrition (S'toon) or Old Fashion Foods--the big one on Albert North before the huge Walmart in Regina...so it was probably at one of those locations.

We should all chat :P it'd be cool to know some Celiac's in Sask!

I work in the field and away from home and corn tortillas are my sandwich bread. They get pretty gross tasting by the end of the week. But Manny's are filling.

Hey guess what guys? I was in Regina today, went into that smaller Old Fashion Foods when you are just coming into Regina (like, by Victoria Square Mall there somewhere) and they had brown rice tortillas, the 10" ones, they come 6 in a pack.

I only bought 3 and havent ate them yet, but when I do I'll post in here what they are like! Or you guys should just go buy some yourself and post so I know what they are like lol

That is not fair. I have not seen brown rice tortillas in Alberta yet. I was so close to the Sask. border, I gues I should have crossed it and gone shopping.

I found corn tortillas in our local Co-op food store, but they tasted horrible and fell apart.

Now I make my own and they taste good. I can wrap them but mostly I just fold them in half with filling inside.

    • So I think my daughter is reacting to Dairy?  I only really removed it 100% from her diet for a few weeks and then SLOWLY let her have some because of how difficult it was to find substitutes she liked and she was still reeling with the emotions of being restricted from so many foods.  The smell amts of dairy we allowed had no adverse effect on her (so we thought) and her improvements were still so profound and immense we felt confident that dairy was not an issue. Cue the Cheerios.  We allowed her "oats" again and Cheerios require milk and within a week BOOM all her symptoms were back - difficulty swallowing, hearing issues, dh rash on her scalp, tired, confused. Naturally I accused the oats of being the devil! So that was a week ago that I figured out that oats were evil and have easily eliminated them as Cheerios were the only source. Well here I am and she is NOT getting better.  In fact...she is now having extreme SPD symptoms again.  Things are too loud.  Smells are too strong. Her clothes feel weird, her bedding feels weird.  This all overlapped with the onset of a pretty bad head cold so I tried to be patient.  But a full week later...I think it's the dairy? I have an apt with a Naturopath to test for food sensitivities and I am wondering about having the Dr test her scalp rash? Any thoughts?  Do we assume it's dairy or could a cold on top of an oat cross contamination still be causing problems?
    • Next time just take a box of rat poisoning and extract ONE granule.  Toss it into his food (while he is watching) and give it a good stir.  Hand the food over and see if he is willing to eat it.
    • Gertrude.....just a few comments after reading your posts..........no other disease but Celiac disease will cause a positive on the EMA test.  I have never heard of a false positive on that either.  It is a test that is done by hand and not by a machine because of the way it has to be done, so having a false positive is almost impossible.  Your doctor should have known that.  Many people trip just 1 or 2 tests on the panel and they have Celiac Disease.  With autoimmune testing, you can test 2 different people with Celiac Disease and they can have wildly different test results.  Couple those with a positive gene test and the likelihood of it being Celiac is almost 100%.  The fact that the doc didn't find villus atrophy just means the damage is not extensive enough for them to find.......yet.  I am sure they would prefer you to keep eating gluten until that happens but you do not want to do that.  So.........after you have been gluten-free for awhile, have them run the Celiac panel again to see if your EMA goes to normal, which it should if you eat very gluten free. With positive gene results, positives on your Celiac antibody testing, and positive dietary response, that is a diagnosis!
    • That's great, Gertrude! I'm glad your doctors sound more competent than mine. And that you're starting to feel better.  I haven't had any abdominal or joint pain in the last few days, and I feel like I have more energy for sure. I've been feeling a little off/dizzy but that might be from gluten withdrawal.  Good luck with everything! 
    • By the way, I got my biopsy pathology report and the doctor took 2 biopsies, not the recommended 4-6. It says no "significant villous blunting not seen." I don't know if I should laugh or cry---so frustrating.
