Best Low Carb Tortillas Review by a Dietitian

low carb tortillas listed in a row including Paleo thin coconut wrap, Tumaros, premium white, Ole extreme wellness keto tortila, la tortilla factory, and mission carb balance tortilla

Tortillas are a staple in many diets. If you’re on a low-carb diet or diagnosed with gestational diabetes, thinking about not eating tortillas with your meal can be heartbreaking. Thankfully, today, there are many low-carb tortilla options on the market.

In this blog, we’re diving into the top 5 low-carb tortillas on the market. These tortillas are all high in fiber and can easily fit into your gestational diabetes and postpartum diet. 

1. Mission Carb Balance Whole Wheat Tortilla:

These super soft tortillas contain 19g of carbs plus 15g of fiber. Their high fiber content helps stabilize blood sugars and is perfect with healthy fat or protein.

These low-carb tortillas are amazing as a quesadilla, wrap, or breakfast burrito. 

Mission Carb Balance tortillas can be found at most grocery stores and are likely the easiest low-carb tortillas to find. 

2. La Tortilla Factory Low Carb Tortilla:

La Tortilla is another great choice when it comes to low-carb diets. These have been favorites of mine for years. La Tortilla Factory tortillas contain 19g of carbs with 15g of fiber from oat fiber and wheat flour. I think the oat flour gives it a nice taste and texture.

La Tortilla Factory tortillas are also low-calorie, with about 45 calories, making them a great addition to a low-carb and weight-management diet. YOu can find these at many grocery stores across the United States. 

3. Ole Xtreme Wellness Keto Tortillas:

Ole Xtreme Wellness Keto tortillas have about 15g of carbohydrates and 11g of fiber. What I like about these is that their Spinach and Herb variety contains flaxseed in the ingredients and boosts its healthy fat and fiber content. 

These tortillas are easy to find on Amazon and at many major grocery stores. I love enjoying these as quesadillas or as tacos. 

4. Tumaro’s Low-in Carbs Premium White Wraps:

Tumaro’s Low Carb Wraps are larger than most lower-carb tortillas at 12 inches, which makes them great for burritos, quesadillas, and wraps. They are higher in calories and carbs than other low-carb tortillas but are twice the size and still a better option than other wraps.

Each Tumaro Low-in-Carb Wrap contains 310 calories, 47g of carbohydrates, 5g of fiber, and 9 g of protein.  These are great paired with proteins like cheese, steak, chicken, shrimp, and eggs and healthy fats like avocado, almond butter, and peanut butter.

5. Julian Bakery Paleo Wraps

Julian Bakery Paleo Wraps are great options for those who are gluten-free and watching their carbohydrate intake. Each wrap has three simple ingredients: coconut meat, oil, and water.

Julian’s Wraps are by far the healthiest options in the low-carb tortilla world, using only whole ingredients, 6g of carbs, and 2g of fiber. These are great, wrapped with turkey, cottage cheese, and avocado.

Bottom Line on Low Carb Diet

Low-carb tortillas can be a great alternative to flour tortillas when watching carbs. Picking carb foods with high fibers and pairing them with high healthy fat and lean protein foods can help sustain energy and keep a balanced blood sugar.
