One of the important qualities of bread products is a filling platform for adding other things. You never appreciate the convenience of the humble sandwich until you start a low carb diet! Low carb tortillas are an absolute staple for me now because they can be used in so many ways: fajitas, quesadillas, wraps and more. When I started low-carbing there weren't many options available – and by the time I first wrote this post in 2014 there were six options, although at least half of those were only available from online stores.
These days, there are SO many more to chose from – it's fantastic! I see at least four different brands at my local Mariano's (Kroger) store – often with several varieties. So here are the tortillas that I am comparing, plus the size and net carb count:
- La Tortilla Factory Low Carb, 7″, 3g net carbs
- Mama Lupe's Low Carb, 7″, 3g net carbs
- Maria & Ricardo's Whole Wheat Plus, 6″, 4g net carbs
- Tumaro's Carb Wise (formerly Let's Skip the Sandwich), 8″, 5g net carbs
- Mission Carb Balance Flour Tortilla, 8″, 4g net carbs
- Mission Carb Balance Whole Wheat Tortilla, 8″, 3g net carbs
- La Banderita Carb Counter, 8″, 5g net carbs
- Keto Tortilla Company, 6″, 0g net carbs
Which tortillas have less carbs?
As you can see from the list above, the Keto Tortilla Company wins hands down. But you will also want to consider size, texture, ingredients, cost, and availability before selecting the best tortilla for you!
Low carb tortilla reviews
Maria and Ricardo's FiberRich Wholewheat Tortillas – buy online from Amazon or Netrition
These are the lowest in calories out of all the products reviewed. They are very light and tasty, not too cardboardy.
Tumaro's Carb Wise (formerly Let's Skip the Sandwich) – buy online from Amazon
2021 Update: Tumaro's have rebranded and they now have a ton of different flavors in their Carb Wise range. As soon as I try them I'll post the feedback here!
Mission Carb Balance Flour Tortilla Soft Taco – buy online from Amazon – or readily available in grocery stores
Mission have been my go-to brand for a long time – and I was so pleased when they reworked their recipe for their flour tortillas – they used to be 6g net and now they are 4g net carbs! They have a pleasant, everyday sort of taste that makes them very useful. Note: There are other flavors available like Spinach and Herb or Sundried Tomato Basil – and these range from 3-5g net carbs per tortilla.
Mission Carb Balance Whole Wheat Tortilla – buy online from Amazon
Really quite different from Mission's flour style – more hearty and filling as you might expect, but only 3g net carbs per tortilla!
La Banderita Carb Counter Tortillas – buy online from Amazon or in grocery stores
They're 8″ wide – so joint biggest out of those that I reviewed. They're 5g net carbs each and have a light texture. Very good!
Update: La Banderita also make “street taco” size which are 4-5″ wide and zero carb!
Keto Tortilla Company – buy online direct from the company
Check out the first ingredient: butter! They are smaller and denser than some of the others reviewed here, but definitely worth trying – plus they are ZERO carb!

Are low carb tortillas really low carb?
It's a question that I hear many times – are they really too good to be true? They key is the fiber content – it's usually very high and therefore the net carbs are low. If you count TOTAL carbs on your way of eating, then no, they won't be low carb.
The best way to find out is monitor whether they throw you out of ketosis – after all everyone is different, and various products affect people in different ways. I recommend getting something like the Keyto Breath Sensor for super easy monitoring!
