Tortilla wraps are typically made with highly processed white flour ( bad ) - but the kicker is, the sodium content of that flat piece of nothing is sky high! A single large burrito sized tortilla ( Mission Brand, the most widely distributed tortilla brand in the country ) has an astonishing 630 mg of sodium...per tortilla!
Amount per Serving
So before you put anything on that sandwich wrap, before any homemade little CE pizza...you are eating 630 mg of sodium.
If you want a Clean wrap - as always, read the labels before you buy. Look for whole wheat, lower sodium versions. Check out the brands that are labeled as organic. Chances are, the manufacturer has controlled the salt shaker, too!
Some brands to look for:
Whole Foods 365 whole wheat tortillas - 125 mg of sodium
Trader Joe's Organic ( white flour and whole wheat ) tortillas -160 to 180 mg of sodium
Azteca Buena whole wheat tortillas - 250 mg of sodium
La Banderita Grande burrito wrap ( white flour ) 350 mg sodium
