Why We Love It: Compared to other gluten-free tortillas out there (namely, corn tortillas for tacos), these tortillas are larger and contain more natural ingredients. However, they don’t have a lot of flavor on their own, and the texture is very stiff, even when heated. When we tried these with sandwich fixings on the inside, the tortilla was so stiff it broke in several places, leaving us with mayonnaise fingers! However, these are good if you’re looking for a yeast-free sandwich option or have warm fillings that are full of flavor on their own.

Fun Fact: Food for Life’s Ezekiel 4:9 products are crafted in the likeness of the Holy Scripture verse Ezekiel 4:9: “Take also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentils and millet, and spelt and put them in one vessel…” Yup, they found the recipe in the bible!
