Product Review – Low Carb Tortilla and Carb Balance Tortilla

Well, when we went to the store, I was going to get some more tortillas (I don’t eat them often but it sure is nice to be able to grab one if I want it). Well, they didn’t have the same brand! How dare them! So, I grabbed two others, so I could try them out.

Tortilla #1: La Tortilla Factory High Fiber/Low Carb tortillas

The first one (which I mentioned in that other post) is La Tortilla Factory High Fiber/Low Carb tortillas. These come in a 10 count package and each tortillas weighs 36 grams (I’m sure that’s important to someone since either a ton of people input the wrong data into My Fitness Pal or there are different weights/sizes out there. For those using it, here’s the link to this tortilla on My Fitness Pal: La Toritilla Factory – Low Carb High Fiber Whole Wheat Tortilla Notice the misspelling? That’s why it took a while to find this). This is the other one I mentioned that contains soy.  This was good, though tasted dry and less wheat-like than the Sol Del Oro.  The carb count is 10g total with 7g fiber.  So, 3 net grams carbs (one more that the Sol Del Oro).  These can also be purchased from their website (if you can’t find them in local stores … I have no idea how far and wide these are carried): La Tortilla Factory High Fiber/Low Carb tortillas.

Tortilla #2: Mission Carb Balance Soft Taco Flour Tortillas.

These do not have soy but have wheat protein isolate (I had no idea that even existed) and sucralose (Splenda).  Now, these have DOUBLE the carbs of the tortillas above (19g total carbs, 13g fiber) but dear Lord!  These are flour tortillas (like normal, store-bought flour tortillas)!  Unfortunately, their website is awful: (This is the closest link I can give you, and it’s not even the right product) http://www.missionfoods.com/Pressroom/OurProducts.aspx?t=432&id=6376 and they have no links, such as “Buy Online” or “Where to Buy” so your best bet is to just Google the dang things. We bought ours at Smart Foods (Save Mart Foods) but some of the Google results showed Walmart and Netrition (online).  BUT if you can find these (and spare the carbs), they are well worth it!  Real Tortillas!
