High fiber low carb. 50 calories, 1.5 g fat, 16 carbs, 11g fiber, 4g protein. Whole wheat flour. I found them at Wal-Mart. Reply Bethzaida Vasquez says: March 25, 2017 at 1:03 am how about the corn tortilla which one you prefer? Reply Emily O’Neil says: March 31, 2017 at 5:16 pm I just found your channel a few days ago and I've been binge watching a lot of your videos! I'm really into counting my macros and knowing what goes into my food. I've been pretty dedicated to make choices that fuel my body for about 2 years straight now! I do have to say you've opened my eyes to watching my sodium intake, and I can't wait to see other ideas/inspo that I can get from you! Thanks for putting out amazing content. Love, your newest subscriber. 🙂 Reply The Shady Brunch says: April 3, 2017 at 4:14 am I use la tortilla factory i love them! Reply R Oki says: April 4, 2017 at 2:13 pm Thank you very much for the details you put into this. I do read the ingredients and get heart broken when I realize some of my old favorites are not very good for me or just don't process through my system well anymore. Thank you for your honest opinion of the Ezekiel tortillas. I may still pick up a small pack to try. Reply Rebekah C says: April 9, 2017 at 3:05 pm ole tortillas are awesome 50 calories 2gm of fat 4gm protien Reply Kelsi Lee says: April 19, 2017 at 5:19 am Does anyone know if we can get ezekiel breads in Australia and if not, do we have a substitute? i have never seen it myself Reply Maria Jose Aguilar Amezcua says: April 21, 2017 at 5:25 pm Just buy corn tortillas, they are a better option. Reply David Arnold says: April 23, 2017 at 7:12 pm I am hooked on the Ole X-Treme Wellness High Fiber tortillas. Only 50 calories, 16 carbs and 11 fiber and 4 protein. A bit high with sodium at 310 but I can accept that. I keep thinking there must be a catch but I have looked up the ingredients and while some are those weird sounding things it doesn't seem like any are hidden forms of poison. Opinions? Please don't ruin my tortilla passion! Reply Gitti Hernandez says: May 3, 2017 at 5:01 pm Where do you get the ezequiel tortilla?

( country accent ) Reply Iram M says: June 6, 2017 at 6:50 pm + mind over munch ..I am concerned about additives in the ingredient list like sodium,gluten and other additives that are very unhealthy. can you tell me how to choose any product according to that Reply Nicole Alexis says: June 7, 2017 at 1:50 am Low-cal and "healthy" options usually are a waste of time because they tend to crumble or tear or they taste like crap. I find it much easier to skip tortillas altogether and either opt for a lettuce wrap, whole wheat pita or some kind of flatbread. You can also put your burrito contents into a bowl like they do at Chipotle, which is especially good if you're lazy and suck at rolling burritos like me. I generally regard tortillas as a treat and just indulge in the classic kind once in a while. Reply Mars Amet says: June 9, 2017 at 7:29 pm I can easily find flour tortillas with only 3-5 ingredients :3 Reply Yesenia Arroyo says: June 23, 2017 at 8:57 pm How do you feel about the TortillaLand raw flour tortillas? They are my favorites but idk how macro friendly they are. Reply Nancy Rudy says: June 27, 2017 at 9:21 pm Thank you for these – makes you pay closer attention to what you are purchasing and putting in your body. Reply Inubran Tain says: July 7, 2017 at 3:32 pm I would say the healthiest option is actually also the cheapest. Just take masa harina and water and cook on the stove. Theres also tortilla makers but a skillet will work too. It takes marginally more work because obviously you actually have to go out of your way to heat them on the stove and they probably don't have quite as long of a shelf life. But the bottom line is you get a product that is literally only two ingredients. One of which is water…. sooo. I don't really know the macros or micros or whatever but its the traditional way of making it and i cant imagine it being worse than buying pre packaged. Reply Vicki G Solomon says: July 11, 2017 at 12:58 am "Cellulose fiber" is generally sawdust aka finely processed wood. It really ups the fiber content. Yuck! Reply Michael Domeier says: July 17, 2017 at 2:41 am Ole Xtreme health and wellness are good. Reply christophercrypt says: July 18, 2017 at 10:53 pm I've never subscribed to a channel so fast. Your realistic approach to making healthy choices has been extremely helpful. Thank you!

I had to check the calories and ingredients every time since not every package that says healthy is actually healthy! Thanks for this! You and Sarah are the best! thumbsup Reply Ana Finau says: August 25, 2017 at 4:06 am Try tortilla land tortillas next time, only 5 ingredients Reply Jonathan Dominguez says: September 3, 2017 at 6:26 pm I'm not really trying to lose weight, My tortillas are 100 calories and whole wheat, 80 soidium but 19 carbs, Is it good?

Reply Raven 21 says: December 22, 2017 at 9:36 pm I love torilla made out of air 😄 Reply Diana Choi says: January 9, 2018 at 9:12 am so what i learned from doing Keto years back is that net carbs are important to look at when following a low-carb diet because the fiber cannot be digested for fuel in your body. Of course, fiber is still important in our nutrition but I was taught that those carbs were not burned for calories like the other carbohydrates. Quest bars, for example, market net carbs because many low carb dieters (who are their prime target groups) already subtract fiber from total carb counts in order to track their carb intake. I don't think it's purely marketing ploy, I think for people trying to follow a low carb diet it is important to know what net carbs means Reply Idea Baker says: January 26, 2018 at 8:05 pm Ole Mexican Foods makes the Xtreme Wellness High Fiber Low Carb whole wheat flour tortilla; for a 45 gram serving, it's only 50 calories , has 11 grams of fiber and only 1.5 grams of fat. Net carbs are 5 grams (16 total). Made in America. A nutritional bargain. Reply Remy N. says: February 8, 2018 at 10:24 pm Woohoo, my fiber one tortilla is healthy after all! Reply Glenn Swindler says: February 10, 2018 at 3:04 am Ole xtreme wellness high fiber tortillas. You're welcome Reply Broseph says: March 3, 2018 at 10:24 pm Wow great video. Reply Jackie Alfaro says: March 21, 2018 at 9:52 am Tysm 😍 Reply Lakean Bacon says: March 22, 2018 at 4:22 am If you’re going for a more processed tortilla I use the Ole extreme wellness tortillas. They are low in carbs, and high in fiber, no added sugars, and no fat.

After watching this video, I went on a shopping trip with my family and I found a sale on olé Mexican foods tortillas. I picked their sprouted whole grains option, which had a short list of ingredients. In fact, the only thing I couldn’t read were the dough conditioners. It was an amazing price (8 packages for $2.99) and had some decent numbers. Reply Jackie Patti says: July 15, 2018 at 11:32 pm I wish I could find traditional tortillas, made with lard. Reply Stop It says: July 24, 2018 at 5:47 am I eat the Mission 100% Whole Grain Tortillas. Would you say those are good? Reply Jordan Sparte says: July 24, 2018 at 6:33 pm My go to tortilla’s are Tumaro’s. Their 8” wraps are only 60 calories and their 10” is 80 cals.

Reply Ariel Aron says: July 30, 2018 at 2:31 am I usually eat corn tortillas but I do buy. A brand called Ole Xtreme wellness High fiber low carb. On front says no hydrogenated oils, no sugar added. It has 50 cal, 1.5 total fat, 16v carbs, 11g fiber, no sugar and 4g protein. First 3 ingredients are whole wheat flour, water, cellulose flour. Still not the best but the macros are good. Reply TaylorEZE says: August 7, 2018 at 1:35 pm Which store do you get that Banderita tortilla from? Reply Tom says: August 8, 2018 at 8:58 pm Flour Tortillas are addicting Reply Usa France says: August 18, 2018 at 6:32 am So pretty much, don't eat tortillas.

I'm subcribing because I liked how you went about nutritional value and all. by the way I have a few bruskies on me in case you see any misspellings. subscribed!! Reply Amar Banwait says: November 25, 2018 at 9:41 am If they take something out they have to put something else in to replace it, why so food claiming to be healthier is actually worst then the original product Reply Cara Stone says: December 30, 2018 at 5:20 pm if you want a tortillas that low in calories, carbs, AND fat, try Joseph's Lavash bread. It's a flat bread that's VERY close to the texture of a tortilla and fits those goals very well. Reply HALLIWEL07 says: January 5, 2019 at 3:32 am Thank you you’re helping me a lot Reply KISSARRAH says: January 7, 2019 at 10:13 pm She says they're all similar in size, but they're only similar in weight. The tortillas smaller in diameter are harder to make into burritos. That's why the one she buys reads "soft taco". Reply robotnik77 says: January 19, 2019 at 6:11 pm You mentioned sodium (salt, NaCL) at the end of your presentation. I am on a low sodium diet, and I found that I can pack any low sodium ingredients into a wrap. However, as you mention, just ONE flour tortilla wrap, itself, can be loaded with sodium. I checked several brands of white and whole wheat flour wraps, and found the range of sodium was between 192mg and 660mg per tort !!. I switched to corn tortillas that have zero sodium. Unfortunately, I cannot find a corn tort in an 8" diameter size, and it's hard to get a full meal into a smaller tort. Tortillas are now the staple of my low-salt diet. You can put just about any mix of meat and vegetables into them. I usually buy a roast chicken, remove the skin, and use that as my meat base, and load it with any variety of veggies as accompaniment, and it makes a complete meal. It's especially great for those who are not cooks. Use a grater on the veggies to make them easier to pack into a small wrap. Think beyond lettuce. Any veggie. Corn tortillas separate easily, so it helps to zap then in the micro for 20 seconds on a plate, which makes them more pliable, and less likely to fall apart. Add a bit of salsa. See the sal in salsa? That's salt – just use less. You only need the flavor. Since I've been on my tortilla diet, my BP has gone back to normal. Daily exercise is a must. Walk 20-30 minutes every day. Can't go outside? Walk in a circle in your home, or back yard. Use a timer. For breakfast, try microwaving a sweet potato/yam. It makes a great breakfast for low-salters. If you use butter, or margarine, you don't need much. An added advantage is that you can lose weight, unless you're a snacker. Snacks? Substitute finger-size carrots, or celery, in place of potato chips. Reply HeyitsGina! says: February 4, 2019 at 9:08 pm are there any that are soy free?

I really wanted to like the tortillas but I just couldn’t stand the taste. Reply Ricky C. says: March 8, 2019 at 7:03 pm What about corn tortillas? Reply 4everVegeta says: March 19, 2019 at 12:30 pm I dont understand why a simple flat bread has all that sh!t Reply Christina L says: March 21, 2019 at 6:20 am What are your thoughts on homemade tortillas?

Find yourself a good you tube video and void all that extra junk. I recommend Jauja cocina on YouTube, authentic Mexican recipes Reply Gerardo Garcia Jr says: April 3, 2019 at 2:42 am What about all that salt though quite a bit for one tortilla lol Reply Truetothat454 says: April 4, 2019 at 7:41 pm Also look at the Sodium, which was twice or more in the Flour tortillas compared to others. Sodium is just as important as other Nutrition Facts listed values.

You’re not digesting it, it doesn’t count. Though with that specific tortilla they’re using modified food starch as the fiber, which I’m not sure whether that’s actually fiber and or acts as fiber. Other brands use powdered cellulose which is actually fiber which definitely cannot be digested. I’d like to find a tortilla recipe for something with 25g of fiber and 30g of protein, wheat gluten, and then with corn. Reply TheFather246 says: September 9, 2019 at 2:28 am Almond flour tortilla Reply Nightwing says: September 13, 2019 at 2:08 am The Net carbs is refering to the insulin spiking carbs …as we all know fiber does not spike your insulin and actually aids in moving bad carbs out and preventing them from spiking insulin as well..so the net is just refering to the leftover bad carbs that will still have an effect on your body. Not all carbs are equal …thats like claiming all protien is the same and saying pea protien is same as whey or animal. Its just not and all have diff impacts to your bodys functions.
