Tortilla Wraps

Hello

I'm new to this so hope this is the correct forum for this kind of question. Apologies if not!

I have been gluten free for quite a while and so have many good recepies for things to make food more interesting, however one thing that I really miss is Mexican Food, especially Fajitas!

Although there are corn tortilas that you can buy, these still contain wheat flour and so are useless.

I wonder if anyone knows where you can buy gluten free soft tortilla wraps of if anyone has a recipe to make plain ones?

I would really appreciate it!

Many thanks

I have not tried them, but members of my Gluten-Intolerance group say that French Meadow Bakery has the best gluten free tortillas around. Their gluten-free tortilla is This product is casein-Free, Gluten-Free, Gluten-Free, Lactose Free, Peanut Free.

If you Google French Meadow Bakery, you'll find the link to their webpage. I've had their gluten-free brownies (sold on their web page -- I had them at Disney World), and they are excellent.

While we're on the subject: Does anyone know of a good ABSOLUTELY GLUTEN-FREE comercially produced corn tortilla?

You guys are making me paranoid! I buy corn tortillas all the time. So I just went to my fridge to re-read the ingredients on my corn tortillas. I have a pkg of El Maizal tortillas and the ingredients say "ground corn treated with lime water, sodium propionate (to preserve freshness), cellulose gum, fumaric acid, propionate acid and sodium phosphate (to preserve freshness). Is there gluten in any of that??? I haven't noticed it ever bothering me. I did just pick up a pkg of Azteca corn tortillas because they didn't seem to have my usual El Maizal brand. I'm looking at the ingredients on it and it says "stone ground corn flour (processed with Lim), water, fumaric acid, cellulose gum, guar gum, potassium sorbate and calcium propionate (preservatives). I am usually a little suspicious of any brands that I know also have other products, as I know Azteca also does flour tortillas, but there's no disclaimers on this about facilities or anything. Any thoughts on my brands??

French Meadow "flour" tortilas are deicious. They're just tiny, so you have to make lots of burritios :P Sonoma brand Ivory Teff Wraps are a close approximation of flour tortillas, and they're BIG.

Mission brand corn tortillas have corn and water, and we eat them all the time without issue.

La Tortilla Factory makes wonderful gluten free tortillas. Try the Ivory Teff wraps, they are made from teff and millet flours. They are the size of a flour tortilla, smell and taste similar, and go well for use as a wrap or in making enchiladas. They can be a little dry. To fix that, microwave them for a few seconds with a damp paper towel. I find mine at Hy-Vee, but Whole Foods is also listed as a retailer.

All of the corn tortillas I see at my store are nothing more than corn, lime, and water. Mission even say "gluten free" on the package.

You might try looking around more at different brands, or making your own (they aren't that complicated, really, and taste 100 times better).

I buy the gluten free rice tortilla shells (the sell them in the freezer section at Superstore in Canada). They are the same size as the regular soft tortillas and are great for burritos and enchiladas as they are softer than the corn varieties.

Do they still say it on the bag? I read that the statement no longer appears.

"Gluten-free" still appear on the tortilla chips at COSTCO -- they are made by Mission. That, I know, because I just bought some. :)

Unfortunately, I reacted to them. :(

I'm okay with corn products only if they are not procesed in a plant that also processes wheat.

I'm going to try Bob's Red Mill gluten-free masa. Regular, store bought masa has given me problems so far, alas. Has anyone tried Bob's Masa?

I buy Food for Life gluten-free soft shell tortillas. They are available in the health food section of Superstores in Atlantic Canada. I see they are also available on line at the Gluten Free Mall.

Perhaps it is the corn that is bothering you, not gluten contamination?

Food for Life makes brown rice based tortillas.

Good point, tarnalberry. I thought that, too . . . but I kept experimenting, and I am happy to post that I am fine with organic, non-GMO corn. I am also fine with organic, non-GMO polenta, cornmeal, etc. I also do well with Corn Thins (they are also organic, non-GMO).

So, maybe in addition to gluten, I also have a sensitivity to genetically modified corn. Tarnalberry, thank you SO MUCH for sparking my realization of this possibility! I wonder if people who have reactions to corn have them because they are eating genetically modified corn, and their bodies cannot handle it. So many of us become sensitive to other foods--it might be true?

Has anyone else here found they can eat organic, non-GMO corn but not genetically modified corn? I'd love to know! (For those new to non-GMO: If a product isn't marked as being non-GMO, it is most probably is genetically modified--especially if manufactured in the United States.)

As memory serves, Bob's Red Mill masa is also non-GMO, which is why I'm excited to try it.

I NEED MY CORN TORTILLAS!

I'm so happy for this thread! Thank you to Joy Joy for starting it. :)

Hi and welcome!!

Check out http://www.sandwichpetals.com

I found out about them from another forum, ordered a box, and my whole family is hooked.

They're made from 10 gluten free grains and are super healthy.

Each box you order has 3 flavors of wraps: spinach garlic, agave grain(my favorite!) and chimayo chile

On Mondays you can order 1 box and get 1 free. 72 wraps total for $25 including shipping...did I mention I'm addicted?

Anyway, they're super good and we make enchiladas, burritos, mini pizzas, and quesadillas with them...you may want to order some and give them a shot! Good luck!!

I wasn't at all happy with the additional information this company asks you to provide at the end of the order -- weird, specific credit card info. I left the site because I was unsure. I was very sorry to do this because I wanted to take advantage of the 2 for 1 Monday offer, but frankly, it really creeped me out.

Please convince me I am wrong. Thanks.

We've ordered from them twice, I'm not sure why they ask for the additional info, as other sites don't, but it's supposed to be for verification of your card. We've done it twice with no problems, though! You could email to get some more info. They have a contact form on their site. I was a little unsure about it, too, but we've had no problems with billing! :)

We tried some kind of Teff wrap but didn't like it at all. Daughter sometimes likes the rice tortillas, but sometimes not. I have yet to see corn tortillas with wheat in them.

If they're asking for the security code on the back of the card, that's pretty common, even among major online retailers. It's to verify that you have the card in your possession, and that the number wasn't read off of something else. (Not sure how useful it is, 'cause it needs security too, but that's the goal.)

I'm used to the security code thing. This was a page of info after I put in my credit card number -- never had that happen before now.

Hello, everyone,

I think, this is my first or second posting on this forum - it is nice to see so many posts related to glutein free diet. I have a question. Say, you have bought a glutein free meal /bread/item from the grocery store and you have reacted to it. What symptoms would prime you to think that you have digested some glutein?

I am very curious... What are the IMMEDIATE sypmtoms of your glutein contamination?

Thanks.

That sounds like a really good deal, except I live by myself ... my folks and my bf sometimes eat the gluten-free foods with me, but that's still a lot. Do they do ok in the freezer?

    • You're right on the extremes, I'm sitting in a gluten-free food festival right now and still unsure if to eat anything which I guess means I've hit the extreme end of the scale. Seem to be noticing the recovery pattern over the course of 6 weeks or so after a gluten hit. Will be very interesting to see what the blood test readings come out like when I eventually get them done again. And thanks for the good wishes
    • Your getting plenty of proteins for once and I would drop the L-glutamine supplement what brand is it? Paleo Protein as in the brand? They were not gluten free last I checked, I got sick from it 2 years ago or so when they changed to a non dedicated facility.
    • Very interesting. However, my positive on the DGP test is on the combined assay. When separated into IGA and IGG they are within normal range. Twice the IGA was a point or two above normal range, which can be easily disregarded per University of Chicago.  Much of the research done on NCGS is showing activation of cells which are different then in celiac. Placing it still in a gluten related illness spectrum, but an entirely different kind of mode of transport, if you will, then celiac disease. Odd, because I am pretty sure I read that 1st degree relatives of celiacs have a higher prevalence of NCGS suggesting it is, in part, that they are related. But I cannot recall where I read that.  I think my specialist doc is following the right track given that all of this began at the tail end of a 6 week challenge in 2015/16 and I have an increase in IELs.  which, as I've stated before, is a very non-specific finding however. Symptoms continued On a gluten free diet for me months after.  however I was only on it for that 3 months after they found some inflammation. So maybe I didn't give it long enough.  Or like I said, maybe it's something else. We shall see! 
    • Thank you for your replies, everyone! It was very helpful. I don't think I am comfortable with passing the whole gluten introduction diet again and getting that rash. Or, even getting the rash on my face flared up again. It actually might be a good thing I got 'glutened' at that bd party so I could finally make connection with all the symptoms. As I thought back about my 'allergy' rashes I start wondering if it could be related to gluten all those years but no one even suspected. For example, at some point I started getting itchy rash around my knees, spreading down to ankles (front of the legs) in summer. The dermatologist and GP said it is 'sun allergy'. The usual allergic treatments helped for the itch and the patchy scales slowly healed but it flared up on the same place during the summer multiple times. The strange thing is that it never flared up when I went hiking, or walking in the sun in the city (I have extremely low vit D levels and I need to supplement, so it was no-no to stay completely covered no matter the rash...I needed my natural vit D). The rash only appeared after beach visits. At some point I started washing and drying my skin with a towel every time I went out from the sea, the rash still appeared but I was able to control it so it showed up on day 4-5 when vacation was almost over. Then, last summer after I was completely gluten and dairy free for approximately 9-10 months, and I was annoyed of washing my skin each and every time and getting those weird looks on the beach, I stopped doing it. I was prepared with medicine and creams for that rash but guess what - my 'sun allergy' was mysteriously gone. Not a single blister, not a patch of itchy skin, nothing. Another 'allergy' case of mine is that I found from my own bad experience I got very bad rash from red dyes (in food or cosmetics). If it is food it shows on my face, if it is cosmetics (soaps, perfumes)...whenever I applied it. I am now reading that people with dh should stay away from red dyes. Mere coincidence? I don't know, I am more and more suspicious I could have this DH thing going on for years, if that is DH. I am just annoyed that all the dermatologists I went to during all those years never made connection. No one even suspected. It was the usual path - cortisone creams, pills, etc. At some point cortisone creams were no longer working so they started prescribing some mixtures made in the pharmacy specifically for me with sulfur. That worked like a charm but I couldn't walk around all covered in white cream looking like a mummy (long sleeves in summer here where I live and summer = 35-38 C, is not fun). Then, I tried homeopathy....it worked like a charm but of course those rashes kept appearing and disappearing, I was only able to control the itchy skin so I don't scratch, scratch, scratch...looong, long journey! Sorry about my rant...and, one more time thank you everyone who found the time to reply and share your opinion! Much appreciated!
