Product Review: Food For Life Black Rice Tortillas

If you are looking for a way to incorporate healthier options into your daily eating habits, try the new Black Rice Tortillas from Food For Life. Instead of choosing your regular flour tortillas for your veggie tacos and burritos, try these black rice tortillas instead and receive all of the added benefits. These vegan, gluten-free and yeast-free tortillas are packed with nutrients, including the super grain black rice. Black rice contains vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Each tortilla contains just 4 grams of fat and consists of all natural ingredients, including black rice flour, organic brown rice flour, filtered water, organic tapioca flour, safflower oil, organic chia seeds, rice bran, vegetable gum (xanthan gum, cellulose), and sea salt.

These delicious tortillas last for 5 days at room temperature, 3 weeks when refrigerated, or one year if frozen. Fill these healthy tortillas with your favorite toppings, whether it’s fresh veggies and hummus, black beans and rice, or a tofu scramble rolled into a breakfast burrito. People simply looking to eat healthier or those with a gluten intolerance will love these new tortillas. Although they are a tad drier than traditional flour tortillas, they are totally worth the health benefits.
