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

La Tortilla Factory – Low Carb made with Whole Wheat – buy online from Amazon or Netrition
VERY dense and the cardboardiest of those I tried (yes that is a word).

Mama Lupe's Low Carb Fresh Tortillas – buy online from Amazon or Netrition
Great taste – probably the winner overall in terms of size, net carbs, texture and taste.Low Carb Tortilla Comparison and Review

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 Tortillas

 

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!

Mission Carb Balance Whole Wheat

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!

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!

Unfortunately the ingredients in these are not good for you. Just because it’s low carb doesn’t mean it’s healthy. Has a lot of preservatives and additives like dextrose or gmo corn in it. Aren’t there almond flour tortillas out there?

I'm always on the lookout for more low carb tortillas that aren't prohibitively expensive and as easy to buy as possible. If I find any I'll add them here!

La banderita now has a snack size flour tortilla that is 3 net carbs and the perfect size for tacos.

Thanks so much for compiling all of these! I’m curious if you have thoughts on which ones taste the closest to a standard white flour tortilla? Everyone has different preferences I suppose, and I actually really can’t stand the whole wheat, grainy flavor of Mission’s tortillas. Which ones from your list would you recommend for the most basic white flour flavor?

When you've tried Mission, have you tried the "flour tortillas" as opposed to the whole wheat versions? They are way less grainy. If you have tried the flour ones but are still not a fan, I'd recommend La Banderita - not whole wheaty or grainy at all!

Thank you for all the great info on low carb tortillas. I orderd some Mama Lupe brand, and will also look for the Mission Carb Balance Spinach Herb variety at my local market.

Do any of these tortilla options "crisp"? I want to make chimichangas and quesadillas. The Mama Lupes Low Carb that we normally buy do not crisp up.

I use the Mission tortillas and I've not had any problems with them crisping up. What method do you use? Here's how I do mine: https://stepawayfromthecarbs.com/homemade-low-carb-tortilla-chips/
