Guerrero Corn Tortillas

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Just found an excellent gluten-free corn tortilla, Guerrero Tortillas De Maiz Blanco. They are sold in my neighborhood (Bklyn, NY) for $1.29, for a bag of 30 (1 lb 11.5 oz). I've had other corn tortillas but, other than the excellent corn tortillas produced by Mission, these are the only ones I've found that are designated Gluten Free on the packaging.

Have you tried them yet? I used them for the first time in a casserole about a month ago. I had a horrible reaction to the casserole and the only things that weren't fresh were the tortillas, the chicken stock that I used, and my McCormick's spices. I've been trying to figure out which was the problem but ever since I've been really sick so I haven't been able to make a connection with just one ingredient! Thanks!

You seem to get cc'd or something from every manufactured product. Perhaps you should stick to minimally processed foods?

Are you new to gluten-free? If so, perhaps you still haven't healed & got everything running smoothly yet?

I've been gluten free since (technically) November of last year. I get a bit of cc by trial and error, things that should be gluten-free but are manufactured with gluten-containing products. But whatever has gotten me recently has been a staple in my pantry for awhile. We are pretty sure we've narrowed it down to the Swanson's Chicken Broth or spices that I've used. We really think that's what's happened with the dish I'm referring to here, but I'd love to know another Celiac has tried them and has not had trouble!

Actually, I'm hyper-sensitive and get skin reactions as well. I reacted to something marked gluten-free (topical) in the US, but upon further research they don't sell it gluten-free in the UK because it contains too many ppm for their standards. This was back in March.

I sympathize with the random "gluten free" tortilla and broth/soup reactions. I don't think some these companies test every batch, unless somebody shows me something in writing which states that this is their policy. And I've definitely gotten very sick off of a "gluten free" marked corn flour from a known company that DOES test every batch, and I can't imagine how badly cross contaminated that bag must have been.

I've been gluten free for nearly nine years. What really chaps my @$$ is if I give the allergic dog a treat of something that is supposed to be safe for both of us, and as a result, I get brain fog and he pukes it up or starts scratching himself a hot spot. And this has happened more than once. Not all the time, just enough that it's one of the things I'm starting to question whether I should keep exposing myself to (not to mention the dog). The other dog will break housetraining and pee. :angry:<_< They are already on limited ingredient special dogfood, and if the only thing was it was a piece of a tortilla, or a bread that I just made and I gave them a little bite of it plain, that narrows it down quite a bit.

I have started to make a very limited ingredient flatbread or micro-muffincup when I open a new bag of corn product or try out a different ingredient or brand, then wait to see what the reaction is, because I don't want to make 2 entire loaves of bread and have to then tell my spouse he has to eat it all. I'm on a newer bag right now that really is gluten free per the reactions, it's a blue corn flour, and of course when I went back to the store for another, they didn't have it. :angry:

Since my original post, I've been eating these tortillas every day, and have had no problems as a result.

The same parent company, Gruma, makes both Mission and Guerrero tortillas.

Sorry that this thread got misdirected, it was not intended to discuss the possibility of gluten cross-contamination in this product, and others - it was to let people know that there's a very inexpensive corn tortilla, gluten-free and labeled as such, that is available.

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...
