French Meadow Bakery Organic Fat Flush Tortillas

French Meadow Bakery offers a line-up of organic and all-natural products including yeast-free, vegan, sprouted grain and Kosher options in many forms including breads, tortillas, bagels and desserts. The sprouted grain French Meadow "Fat Flush Plan" Tortillas certainly caught my attention, and held it enough that I bought a pack (10 inch size).

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 tortilla (56 grams)
Calories: 100
Total Fat: 1.5 grams, 2%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 210 mg, 9%
Carbohydrates: 35 grams
Fiber: 7 grams, 28%
Sugar: 2 grams
Protein: 11 grams

I actually didn't know that there was such as a thing as The Fat Flush Diet - but apparently there is (check out DietsinReview for more info). Okay... but I'm not on a diet plan; I am just interested in healthy food that tastes great. The texture of these tortillas is not soft and doughy like one might expect, but firm and pliable. The sprouted grains add an element of chew and texture, while also providing for a very filling product that will keep your tummy satisfied as you power through the rest of your day - depending on what fillings you pile into the tortilla of course. My latest creation involves tuna mixed with salsa, refried beans & some shredded lettuce. Protein & fiber power baby protein power!

Each 10 inch French Meadow Bakery Organic Whole Wheat Fat Flush Tortillas provides a satiating 100 calories, 1.5 grams of total fat, no saturated fat, 210 mg of sodium (9% of the DV), a whopping 7 grams of fiber (28% of the DV), 2 grams of sugar and 11 grams of protein. The organic ingredient list is incredibly short and lists, organic sprouted wheat berries, organic vital wheat gluten, organic malt extract, organic sprouted barley, organic sprouted millet, organic psyllium husks, sea salt, organic sprouted lentils, organic sprouted soybeans, organic sprouted spelt berries (wheat), guar gum.

While this might not taste like a typical soft, doughy "typical" tortilla (not as tasty as Mission Plus 96 % Fat Free Burrito Tortillas), but don't write it off. The ingredients list is so much better, and you can't beat the amount of fiber and protein! I might not purchase French Meadow Bakery "The Fat Flush Plan" Tortillas every single week; but they will certainly be back in my kitchen from time to time, to help keep things interesting. A pack with 6 large wraps costs about $3.50.
