Hey guys! How’s it going? We are doing really well over here. I’m about 27 weeks pregnant right now-almost in the third trimester! How did that happen? That’s crazy and SCARY.
We’ve been braving Colorado winter and we’re almost through it. I can officially see the light at the end of the tunnel. I am so ready for warmer weather too..anyone else?
The upside to glorious winter is I find myself trying/eating lots of new foods and snacks. I mean, I do that during the summer too, but let’s pretend it happens more during winter.
I’ve seen Siete Foods products all over social media so there’s no doubt these are kind of a new, sexy product. Obviously I had to try them. They have several different products including grain free tortillas (one using almond flour, one using coconut/cassava, one coconut/chia) and tortilla chips. I’ll have to review their chips because I’ve tried their sea salt tortilla chips and they’re awesome.
Today I’m reviewing their grain-free almond flour tortillas. Here’s a little more information about the tortillas and my thoughts:
Siete Foods Almond Flour Grain Free Tortillas
Pretty clean. These tortillas are only made with almond flour, tapioca flour, water, sea salt, and xantham gum (usually used as a thickening agent. I use it sometimes in smoothies). So, no ingredients that I don’t recognize and all the things..meaning these are Paleo, non-gmo, gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and vegan. All the things.
Not too shabby. Here’s the nutrient breakdown for 2 tortillas:
Fat: 12 grams
Saturated Fat: 1g
Considering it’s made of almond flour, the calorie and fat content is really not that bad.
Taste and Texture:
Honestly, I’m always skeptical of “health food” sort of “trends” because a.) they’re always expensive, and b.) sometimes they don’t taste very good.
I expected these to be super nutty (ya know, because of the almond flour) but they’re actually not. They have a good taste, basically that of a tortilla, and a great texture. Sometimes these sort of things fall apart easy too but these held together nicely when stuffed with tuna salad.
I tried some Paleo wraps a few weeks ago that were made of coconut (like, basically only coconut meat) and (surprise surprise) they tasted a lot like coconut. Which wasn’t necessarily a bad thing, but I prefer these almond flour wraps since there isn’t an overwhelming taste or flavor.
Here’s the sad part: they’re expensive. I mean, sort of expected, right?
I bought them at Natural Grocer’s for around $8 something for 8 tortillas.
If you buy them from Siete’s site, they are $55 for a pack of 6, so about 9 bucks a pack.
I checked Amazon too and they’re over the top expensive. About $12 for a pack plus like, $8 in shipping.
They might sell them on Thrive Market too so that might be worth checking out. I’m sure they’re at Whole Foods too. I’m sure we can all assume they aren’t a bargain there.
Where to Buy:
Natural Grocer’s, off The Siete Foods website, Amazon, Whole Foods, and maybe Thrive Market? They seem to be sprinkled throughout some health food stores in Colorado, so I’m sure it’s like that in other states too. You can always check on their website for store locations.
Will I Buy Again?
I probably will.
I say “probably” because we don’t eat 100% grain free everyday. I probably eat an 80/20 paleo diet, so definitely not strict. I’m also not someone who misses tortillas when I don’t have them around. Since the cost is a bit high, I’m sure they won’t be a “staple” in our refrigerator, but I would like to have them around because I genuinely like them. So my answer is yes, I would buy them again but sparingly (mostly due to cost).
They have 2 other tortillas if almond flour isn’t for you. One made from cassava and coconut flour and the other cassava and chia. I’ll pick them up at Natural Grocer’s next time I’m there and write a review on those!
Have you tried Siete’s products? Thoughts? Any other grain-free wrap recommendations?
