Episode 2: Is the 1 carb tortilla worth it?

Episode 2: Is the 1 carb tortilla worth it?

In this weeks episode of the SwitchGrocery Tasting Show, we try the 1 carb tortilla 3 different ways!

  

 

What is Mr. Tortilla? (timestamp 2:30)

Mr. Tortilla is the company behind the famous 1 carb tortilla. The founders worked very hard to make a low carb tortilla that TASTES like a real tortilla, feels like a real tortilla and is 1 net carb. It was important to make the wraps vegan and they are vegan! The development took them years to make. This is the lowest carb tortilla you can buy!

Are Mr. Tortilla okay for people with diabetes? 

I encourage everyone to test their own blood glucose. I (Neha w/ pre-diabetes currently) have tested my blood glucose and it is in a typical range.

Are Mr. Tortilla really 1 carb? How many carbs are there in Mr. Tortilla? 

Yes absolutely! It was important to the founders to make a tortilla that is helpful for people who have diabetes or are following a keto or low carb lifestyle. Mr. Tortilla wraps are keto friendly.

The tortillas are the size of your palm which means they are super versatile (24 in a pack) - you can turn them into chips, tacos, wraps, croutons, dessert crepes and more!

What are the ingredients in Mr. Tortilla?  

You can find the ingredients on the product page.

The ingredients make the product not gluten free. The ingredients were chose to balance an accessible price point and taste.

What do the 1 carb tortillas taste like? How would you rank the 3 trials? (timestamp 12:45)

They taste like real wraps

How did Neha end up ranking the 3 ways we made Mr. Tortilla? Did the chips and sour cream come first? Did the 1 carb pizza come first? or did the PB and jam "crepes" win?
