Product Review: La Tortilla Factory Dark Teff Gluten-Free Tortillas

I happened upon La Tortilla Factory’s  Dark Teff Tortillas today at my local health food store.  I had some leftover grilled chicken that I had been planning to put on top of a salad for lunch, but thought that a wrap sounded much better.  I got home and made a fabulous wrap from these tortillas.  First, the feel & texture of these tortillas is the closest thing to what a “normal” flour tortilla feels like.  I haven’t felt that since before I went GF over 3 years ago.   I had high hopes for this baby.  I heated it, as directed on the package, for 15 seconds in the microwave.  I then made my wrap with a bunch of fresh spinach, cut up grilled chicken breast, provolone cheese, tomato & Frank’s Red Hot.  I wrapped it up (IT DIDN’T CRACK OR CRUMBLE!) and sliced in half.  I was amazed.  I was so stinkin’ excited that I didn’t get a picture, I sat down to taste my new love.  WOW!  I was so, so, so pleasantly surprised!  I honestly can’t really tell you that this tastes much different from what I remember a “normal” flour tortilla tasting like.  The tortilla remained the same texture the entire time I was eating (about 30 minutes….it didn’t get hard or stale-like after heating).  If you have heated a brown rice tortilla and then made a wrap before, you know what I mean about the texture changing.  These were so pliable!  I could gush about these for hours!  I have all kinds of things planned for these.  Tomorrow?  Another wrap, but this one on the panini press.  :)  Then, burritos and maybe chimichangas or chicken enchiladas!  Yes, I like corn tortillas, a lot, but there is just something about a good flour tortilla. 

Now the details…kinda pricey.  $4.31 for 6.  OUCH!  So, you can see why these may not be a regular purchase.  Facts:

 

  • Made with Whole Grain Dark Teff & Whole Grain Millet Flour (15 grams of   whole grain per wrap!)

  • Zero grams Trans Fats.

  • Non-Aluminum Baking Powder

  • Kosher

  • Non-Dairy Ingredients

  • Smooth light texture

  • Hint of real honey. No artificial sweeteners

  • Wrap Size                   : 9.00” to 10.00”

  • Calories: 180

  • Fiber: 3 grams

  • Fat: 5 grams

  • Definitely want to try the Ivory Teff ones too.  These were awesome & I can’t wait to make another wrap tomorrow!

    5. William,

      I am not sure. I have never attempted to make tortillas from scratch. Perhaps a project to work on for me? LOL!
