My wife and I are from Texas, and she'll tell you I like to wrap everything in tortillas or between two slices of bread! The problem is, most flour tortillas are made with enriched or unfermented wheat flour. Enriched wheat flour is denatured flour that causes the blood pressure to spike and increases your risk of developing high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes. Since diabetes runs in our family, we needed a healthier option and discovered the health benefits of sourdough bread. Originating in Egypt thousands of years ago sourdough bread is the oldest form of bread making. However, we couldn't find sourdough tortillas, so my BEAUTIFUL wife began making them from scratch and they were delicious!
What makes sourdough bread the healthiest is the long fermentation process. Fermentation breaks down gluten and important nutrients such as iron, zinc and magnesium, antioxidants and other B vitamins become easier for our bodies to absorb. Our sourdough tortillas have the lowest GI of any flour tortilla, making them an excellent choice for diabetic diets.
That's why we started Paz Sourdough Tortillas. Our sourdough tortillas wraps are made according to ancient traditions with all natural ingredients, then naturally fermented for hours to produce not only the best tasting but the most nutritious flour tortillas and gluten free tortillas on the market today!
