Why I’m reviewing gluten free tortillas brands

After reviewing brands of gluten free bread and later brands of gluten free pasta, I asked those of you on my email list what I should review next—and for some of your favorite brands. Many, many of you responded and the general consensus was to review packaged gluten free tortillas.

My goal in all of these product reviews is plain and simple: to help you spend your hard-earned money wisely. Reviews on sites like amazon.com are great, but it’s often hard to judge the perspective of the reviewer—especially when it comes to gluten free products.

This is my list of the best gluten free tortillas brands from my experience, and your recommendations (which I then purchased and experienced, so thank you!). If you have something else on your best-of list, please let us know in the comments below! Please also share details like where you purchase your favorites, and about how much you pay for them. Let’s help each other!

Who is this list for?

I find that online reviews of gluten free packaged products are often written from the perspective of “good, for gluten free.” They’re not comparing the product to its conventional counterpart, but rather to previous experiences with gluten free products.

This list is for anyone who eats gluten free and wants to avoid wasting money on products that aren’t simply good, for gluten free (and of course products that are downright awful). Since I live and work in New York, in the U.S., the product availability that I discuss is from that perspective. If you live in a different part of this country or a different part of the world, please comment below and tell us your favorite brand(s) of gluten free tortillas, and where you are able to purchase them for a reasonable price.

I purchased all of these tortillas (and the other fails, not listed) with my own money. Nothing in this post is sponsored, these reviews are honest and forthright (not that you can’t do a sponsored post and still be truthful, of course).

All of the products listed are gluten free, dairy free and egg free. Some contain soy, and one contains almonds. Two are Paleo, which means that they’re also gluten free, dairy free and soy free by definition. One is kind of strange, but it’s truly my favorite and I hope you’ll consider giving it a try. You’ll know it when you see it!

What isn’t included on the list?

There were a few brands of tortillas that I purchased after reading very good online reviews, served to my children for taste-testing purposes and even ate multiple times myself. And they were absolutely awful. I just could not recommend them at all.

Those brands were mostly of the alternative variety, include Mikey’s Paleo tortillas, Nuco Paleo coconut wraps, Wrawp organic veggie wraps. I will eat nearly anything, and I literally could not choke these down. All three of these brands smelled strange, and one (Nuco) had a very disturbing aftertaste that burned our mouths.

Food For Life brand brown rice wraps aren’t included in this list because they’re absolutely fine, but the Trader Joe’s brown rice tortillas seem to be largely the same–and for a lower price. Both are kind of an old-school gluten free tortilla/wrap since they’re relatively stiff and chewy, but serviceable.

I also didn’t include Udi’s gluten free flour tortillas. I tried them years ago and they were terrible. I was going to give them another try, but can’t find them anywhere. I wonder if they were discontinued?

Mission Gluten Free Flour Tortillas

If you love tortillas but can't always make your own, here are 8 of the very best gluten free tortillas brands to try. They're so versatile, and there are even some amazing Paleo-style wraps on the list!

Overall, these Mission brand are the best gluten free tortillas and my overall favorite for a number of reasons. They’re relatively well-priced (usually less than $1 each), are very flexible, widely available and have a mostly neutral flavor.

They do taste like potato (it could be the “potato extract” so they might want to cut that out if possible), so my youngest child does not care for these tortillas. But all three of my children are snobbish about packaged foods. They’d prefer that I make my own gluten free tortillas every. single. time.

Here are the other details:

  • Size of package: 10.5 ounces (6 tortillas)
  • Price you should expect to pay: About $5
  • Fresh or frozen: Fresh
  • Availability: Very good. My local grocery store (Stop & Shop), Target stores, Walmart stores
  • Other common allergens: soy
  • Ingredients: tortilla blend (modified food starch, rice flour, tapioca starch, potato extract, cellulose gum, guar gum, xanthan gum, dextrose, soybean flour, potato starch, salt, rice starch, corn dextrin, polyglycerol esters of fatty acids, mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids), water, vegetable shortening (interesterified and hydrogenated soybean oils), pea protein, resistant corn starch, contains 2% or less of: sugar, inulin, baking soda, sodium acid pyrophosphate, monoglycerides, fumaric acid, enzymes, and calcium propionate, sorbic acid and citric acid (to maintain freshness)
  • Shelf life/storage: The package recommends refrigerating after opening, and the package has a stamped freshness date. They’re not refrigerated in store. I refrigerate them immediately and find that they are still good at least a few days after the freshness date.

Rudi’s Gluten Free Bakery Plain Tortillas

If you love tortillas but can't always make your own, here are 8 of the very best gluten free tortillas brands to try. They're so versatile, and there are even some amazing Paleo-style wraps on the list!

Rudi’s gluten free flour tortillas are really good and don’t have that potato taste like Mission. They’re a bit more expensive than the Mission brand, though. Plus they’re harder to find, and only seem to be available frozen.

They keep for quite a while as frozen, though, are flexible and taste very neutral. They probably have the most conventional flour tortilla taste of all of the brands on this list.

Here are the other details:

  • Size of package: 9 ounces (8 tortillas)
  • Price you should expect to pay: about $6.00
  • Fresh or frozen: Frozen
  • Availability: Fair. My local grocery store (Stop & Shop), my local natural foods store. They used to be more widely available.
  • Other common allergens: none
  • Ingredients: whole grain flours (sorghum, brown rice, millet, amaranth, quinoa, teff), corn starch, tapioca flour, rice flour, water, canola oil, xanthan gum, cane sugar, organic maltodextrin and organic cultured dextrose, organic apple cider vinegar, guar gum, sea salt, baking powder (monocalcium phosphate, sodium bicarbonate, corn starch), malic acid, yeast
  • Shelf life/storage: The package recommends storing the tortillas in the freezer or refrigerator, and indicates that the package can be stored on the counter for up to 10 days. The package does have a freshness date, though, so I’m not sure if that 10-day rule is always applicable.

BFree Quinoa and Chia Wraps

If you love tortillas but can't always make your own, here are 8 of the very best gluten free tortillas brands to try. They're so versatile, and there are even some amazing Paleo-style wraps on the list!

I first tried BFree products when you recommended that I try their packaged gluten free bread. As a general rule, I don’t care for products with psyllium husk as an ingredient (and I never bake with it; I’ve tried and I just don’t care for the mouthfeel it creates), but BFree uses it more effectively than others.

These wraps are soft and chewy, very flexible and are generously sized. They don’t taste strange to me at all, but the quinoa and chia formulation won’t appeal to everyone as it’s very “natural” seeming.

The problem with BFree is their availability. The only viable source for me is Glutenfreemall.com, and they recommend freezer-safe shipping when ordering frozen products, especially in the warmer months. That increases the shipping cost and pressures you to purchase other products at the same time for economies of scale.

That lack of availability means that I wasn’t willing to purchase their “plain” wraps, as I could only find those in a large quantity on Amazon.com for a really awful price. I wasn’t willing to commit to that, and I think most people would feel the same.

Here are the other details:

  • Size of package: 8.89 ounces (6 wraps)
  • Price you should expect to pay: $6.69
  • Fresh or frozen: Frozen
  • Availability: Poor. I ordered this product from Glutenfreemall.com and had to pay pretty expensive shipping to keep the package frozen in transit. They’re sold by other online retailers like Amazon.com, but only in large, expensive packs.
  • Other common allergens: none
  • Ingredients: water, mixed wholegrain flours (sorghum flour, rice flour, corn flour, millet flour, teff flour, quinoa flour, amaranth flour, tapioca starch, corn starch), potato flour, pea protein, flaxseeds, xanthan gum, cellulose, teff seeds, canola oil, red quinoa seeds, chia seeds, inulin, guar gum, salt, sourdough (fermented quinoa, corn and rice flour), psyllium husk, citric acid (mold inhibitor), yeast, sodium bicarbonate, monocalcium phosphate, malic acid (mold inhibitor), tartaric acid (mold inhibitor), ascorbic acid.
  • Shelf life/storage: The package recommends freezing and using within 28 days of defrosting.

Flatout Flatbread Gluten Free Wraps

If you love tortillas but can't always make your own, here are 8 of the very best gluten free tortillas brands to try. They're so versatile, and there are even some amazing Paleo-style wraps on the list!

The Flatout people are kind of famous for their low-calorie wraps. According to their website, their gluten free wraps are valued at 4 Weight Watchers SmartPoints each. I think that’s higher than the “regular” wraps. Of course!

I had been on the hunt for these babies the moment I saw a few gluten free bloggers starting to review them online, without any luck. You couldn’t even seem to purchase them online, even from the manufacturer. Why would you have a marketing campaign if your product isn’t readily available to consumers?

When I finally found these wraps, anticipation was high. They really didn’t disappoint. They have a great flavor that’s mostly neutral but not invisible, aren’t too chewy and taste completely “normal.” My oldest selected them as her favorite, and she eats the most gluten-containing food outside the house so she’s a good judge.

The package insists that you heat them before rolling, but even if you defrost them and don’t heat them first, they do still roll. One side of the wrap will flake a bit, but that’s an Achilles heel of store-bought tortillas in general.

Here are the other details:

  • Size of package: 9 ounces (5 flatbreads)
  • Price you should expect to pay: $3.59
  • Fresh or frozen: Fresh or frozen
  • Availability: Poor. For a short time, I was able to find these wraps in various grocery stores. Now, I can only seem to find them online at Netrition. They seem to be out of stock online elsewhere, or simply not available.
  • Other common allergens: soy
  • Ingredients: brown rice flour, fine white rice flour, whole oat flour, tapioca starch, sweet rice flour, potato flour, potato starch, water, oat fiber, maltodextrin, apple cider vinegar, modified corn starch, non-GMO canola oil, Contains 2% or less of: dried cane syrup, honey, soy flour, salt, guar gum, cellulose gum, xanthan gum, baking soda, monoglycerides, calcium sulfate, preservatives (sodium propionate, potassium sorbate, propionic acid, phosphoric acid), enzymes.
  • Shelf life/storage: The package recommends storing in the freezer, then microwaving for 25 seconds before rolling. I find that they last a long time in the freezer.

Trader Joe’s Brown Rice Gluten Free Tortillas

If you love tortillas but can't always make your own, here are 8 of the very best gluten free tortillas brands to try. They're so versatile, and there are even some amazing Paleo-style wraps on the list!

These brown rice tortillas are not great, but they’re still worth a spot on the list. They’re relatively thick and don’t roll without splitting at all. They sort of taste like “health food,” but they still have a good, hearty chew and flavor.

My children don’t love these tortillas, but it’s good to know that you can grab a package at Trader Joe’s in a pinch. If I melted a bunch of cheese inside, they’d eat them. They’re also less expensive than and very similar to the Food For Life brown rice tortillas, which are frozen and more costly.

Here are the other details:

  • Size of package: 12 ounces (6 tortillas)
  • Price you should expect to pay: $3.49
  • Fresh or frozen: Fresh
  • Availability: Trader Joe’s stores
  • Other common allergens: none
  • Ingredients: brown rice flour, filtered water, tapioca flour, safflower oil, rice bran, vegetable gum (xanthan, cellulose), sea salt
  • Shelf life/storage: The package recommends refrigerating for extended shelf life. I find that the dates aren’t great, and the tortillas do go bad beyond the date on the package.

Siete Almond Flour Tortillas

If you love tortillas but can't always make your own, here are 8 of the very best gluten free tortillas brands to try. They're so versatile, and there are even some amazing Paleo-style wraps on the list!

We’ve arrived at the Paleo portion of our list. This brand, Siete, and the following brand are actually really good Paleo tortillas. Siete is expensive and doesn’t seem to have a ton of market penetration. But a number of you recommended them to me, which is great because that means that you can find them—and of course, that you like them.

I’ve been buying both the almond flour variety and the cassava and coconut flour variety of the Siete wraps for a while now, and I really prefer the almond flour variety. It tastes like almonds, but not in an overpowering way, and they’re super thin and flexible.

I think the cassava flour tortillas would be much better if they were made from a blend of cassava/coconut flours and almond flour. I assume they don’t do that because they want to have a nut-free variety for people who can’t or won’t eat nuts. Pretty smart!

Here are the other details:

  • Size of package: 7 ounces (8 tortillas)
  • Price you should expect to pay: about $8
  • Fresh or frozen: Fresh (refrigerated)
  • Availability: Fair. Whole Foods carries this brand in their refrigerated section. The only availability online seems to be way overpriced
  • Other common allergens: almonds
  • Ingredients: almond flour, tapioca flour, water, sea salt, xanthan gum
    (Cassava and coconut ingredients: cassava flour, water, coconut flour, coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, sea salt, xanthan gum)
  • Shelf life/storage: The package recommends keeping the product refrigerated or frozen. There is a freshness date on the package, but I find that they’re fine at least a week if not more past the freshness date if unopened.

The Real Coconut: Coconut Flour Tortillas

If you love tortillas but can't always make your own, here are 8 of the very best gluten free tortillas brands to try. They're so versatile, and there are even some amazing Paleo-style wraps on the list!

As I mentioned earlier, some of the Paleo tortillas that I tried (based upon really good online reviews!) were nearly inedible. “The Real Coconut” brand coconut flour tortillas are excellent. They do taste like coconut, so if you don’t care for coconut at all, you’ll want to avoid these.

But somehow this brand is able to do with a tortilla what Siete (and the other brands) haven’t done: make a flexible, good-tasting wrap out of coconut flour. The price is actually quite good but is likely higher if you buy it at Whole Foods since, well, it’s Whole Foods.

Here are the other details:

  • Size of package: 7.6 ounces (12 tortillas)
  • Price you should expect to pay: $4.99
  • Fresh or frozen: Frozen
  • Availability: Fair. Amazon.com doesn’t carry these tortillas, but Netrition.com does and I’ve found them in Whole Foods markets
  • Ingredients: coconut flour, cassava starch, water, contains 2% or less of: sea salt, coconut oil, xanthan gum
  • Shelf life/storage: The package recommends keeping the tortillas refrigerated, and says they’re suitable for freezing.

NewGem Foods All Natural Wraps

If you love tortillas but can't always make your own, here are 8 of the very best gluten free tortillas brands to try. They're so versatile, and there are even some amazing Paleo-style wraps on the list!

Okay, these NewGem wraps are SO WEIRD. But I absolutely love them. They are not a typical wrap or tortilla (obviously). They’re sort of like a vegetable-based fruit roll up but in a really good way.

They’re flexible to roll and contain any savory fillings you like. The descriptive words that I want to use (chewy texture, for example) don’t sell these wraps, I realize. How can I convince you to give them a try?

The tomato variety is my favorite, but I also love the carrot variety. The carrot one has zero WeightWatchers SmartPoints (!), and the tomato one has 1 SmartPoint. If you hate them, I’m sorry! But I adore them.

Here are the other details:

  • Size of package: 2.2 ounces (6 wraps)
  • Price you should expect to pay: between $7 and $8
  • Fresh or frozen: Fresh (shelf-stable)
  • Availability: Fair. I purchase these on Amazon.com in 4 packs of 2 tomato, 2 carrot.
  • Other common allergens: soy
  • Ingredients: tomato paste (tomatoes), apples, organic palm wax, vegetable glycerin, soy protein isolate, powdered cellulose, fruit pectin, chipotle pepper sauce (red jalapeño peppers, vinegar, salt, onion powder), filtered water
  • Shelf life/storage: There’s a freshness date, but it’s nearly a year in the future. The product does not need any refrigeration.

Now it’s your turn!

    Thanks for these reviews. I’ve been wondering what GF wraps to buy. (Glad you mentioned that Mikey’s were awful, because while I never had anything as bad as their English muffins, I might have tried the tortillas.) I also tried some Wrawp brand spirulina wraps the other day and they were not bad, but had an occasional “fishy” taste. I doubt kids would like them.

    • Nicole Hunn
      June 28, 2018 at 10:32 AM

      It’s such a commentary on the GF consumer mentality, Deb, that you had a horrible experience with Mikey’s English muffins, but were still considering trying another product of theirs. But I totally get it. You want a product to be good, especially if it looks good. We are going to raise the bar if it’s the last thing I do!!

  • Christina Kruk

    Is there any chance any of these (especially the coconut wraps!) are available in Canada?

    • Nicole Hunn
      June 27, 2018 at 7:48 AM

      Hi, Christina,
      I’m afraid I don’t know, as I’m in NY! Maybe another Canadian reader can chime in?

    I am so glad that you did tortillas. I am trying to reproduce Annie’s GF wraps. They have been my go to bring it somewhere food, but they contain too much salt. I didn’t know that you had a recipe and I will try that first. Everything that I have made with your recipes turns out great!

    • Nicole Hunn
      June 26, 2018 at 7:24 AM

      Definitely give the tortillas recipe a try. I actually have a few different types of tortilla recipes here on the blog, so be sure to look around. I’ve never seen Annie’s GF wraps, unless you mean a frozen, prepared food.

      Those look really good, Helen. I’ll have to try them!

  • Jennifer S

    I don’t know Nicole those fruity/veggie roll ups seem a bit out there – hahahaha!
    Otherwise Mission is my favorite though I just got some flat outs to try.
    Thanks for a great list.

    • Nicole Hunn
      June 25, 2018 at 8:38 PM

      Jennifer you can comment!!!! 🎉I know I know but I really love them. Then again, my love of vegetables is nearly unequaled. They actually even taste kind of sweet to me.

  • Susan Mellady

    There is an Aldi’s GF brand LIVE GF FREE that makes bread, pasta, bagels, crackers, and wraps. I found the wraps to be ok, they do freeze, but then to use them in a roll up they will break apart. What I use them for is to make pesto pizza rounds. They work great for that. I cannot attest to whether they are made in a facility that is GF only.

    • Nicole Hunn
      June 26, 2018 at 7:26 AM

      Breaking apart when you try to roll them is unacceptable, Susan! Definitely try another brand on this list. You should have wraps that, well, wrap!

  • Stephanie

    The Rudi’s are available at my Costco and not frozen and very reasonably priced.

  • Karesha Bailey

    I saw someone else mention this but my favorite is La Tortilla Factory’s teff flour tortillas. I’m surprised these aren’t on the list.

    • Nicole Hunn
      June 25, 2018 at 2:37 PM

      I didn’t include them on the list, Karesha, because I couldn’t find them for sale anywhere other than online in enormous packages. I felt like that wasn’t a practical suggestion. If they ever become somewhat more readily available to me, I’ll be sure to try them!

  • CHERYL COOK
    June 24, 2018 at 3:18 PM

    La Tortilla Factory’s GF Sonoma tortillas made of teff are my current favorite. They are thinner than the Mission ones and seem less starchy and when warmed up in a dry fry pan are very flexible. I can buy a package of 6 for $4.18 at my local grocery.

    I like the Toufayan GF wraps, they come in different flavors like plain, Tomato etc. You have to heat them before rolling but they taste great! The texture and taste is spot on.
    Thanks for your great list!

  • David Sherris
    June 24, 2018 at 8:08 AM

    I like the Toufayan brand of wraps. I get them at Wegman’s. Might be available elsewhere. Neutral flavor, no after taste, fold well after moistening and microwaved 30 seconds.

  • Suzey
    June 24, 2018 at 4:04 AM

    Thanks Nicole, we do get some of those brands here in the UK.
    I personally find the best ones here are Warburton gf plain and multi seed wraps.
    They are also rectangular which makes the quit easy to use.

  • Maria Lamb
    June 23, 2018 at 9:26 PM

    Toufayan makes gluten free wraps in several flavors that are pretty good. They are sold in the deli section at Stop & Shop.
    We’re not fans of the texture of the Trader Joe’s tortillas 😁. Has anyone tried the Maria & Ricardo’s GF tortillas?

  • Jen Burkholder
    June 23, 2018 at 1:41 PM

    Thanks for the reviews, they’re very helpful. I tried the Mission tortillas – nicely flexible and reasonably priced, but they seemed… I don’t know, very starchy or something when eating them. It seemed like the tortilla kept getting gummy and feeling like it stuck on my teeth! Maybe it will be better in a quesadilla than just a wrap. The search continues!

  • GF for Life
    June 23, 2018 at 10:30 AM

    I absolutely concur, the Mission GF tortillas are the best! I just wish more places carried them.

  • Robin Pavao
    June 23, 2018 at 2:15 AM

    Joseph’s gluten-free wraps are the best! Texture and taste are amazing! Flavors are garlic-herb, spinach, tomato and plain!

    • Nicole Hunn
      June 23, 2018 at 7:22 PM

      That brand sounds somewhat familiar, Robin. I’ll have to look for it!

    Thanks so much for these reviews. So far my families favorites have lived up with yours. We live near Salt Lake City Utah. Some brands we have seen, others we haven’t. I definitely want to try the vegetable ones! The tomato ones sounds wonderful to make wraps with. Thanks for all your time and effort!

    • Nicole Hunn
      June 23, 2018 at 7:22 PM

      If there are any others that your family loves but I haven’t listed, please let us know, Kimberly!

    The BFree & Flat Out wraps are available at Publix where I live in Alabama. I hope this helps.
    The New Gem wraps sound delicious. I’m going to give them a try. Thank you for review.

    Hi, I no longer eat any GF foods from a company that also processes non-GF foods. The cross contamination makes me sick. Unfortunately, cross contamination extends to potato chips, rice, beans, candy and the list goes on.
    I resent but understand when companies tout GF but they don’t have a dedicated GF processing facility. Again, I do understand the cost factor. My sensitivity has increased as the years go by

  • Julie
    June 22, 2018 at 8:11 PM

    “Best” should really consider how good they are for you as well. The Mission brand ones, and others, have so many additives and weird ingredients that are very hard to digest and can still cause allergic reactions! Gluten free people need to remember to take proper nutrition into account when searching for alternatives.

    • Nicole Hunn
      June 23, 2018 at 7:21 PM

      I provide all of the ingredient information, Julie, and am recommending them by taste. The rest is up to you!

    I love the new gem wrappers. The mango Chipotle is my favorite. I use them for Sammie’s and sushi rolls also…. Iworked for them one summer in packaging. I look for them often when I’m looking for something different.

    • Nicole Hunn
      June 23, 2018 at 7:20 PM

      You do, Michelle?? I’m not alone! 😘I’ll have to try Mango Chipotle next.
