For quite a few years now, people have gone back and forth as to whether they are good or bad. While there has been research supporting both sides, some people decide to just eliminate grains from their diet altogether. A grain-free diet is one that excludes wheat, barely, rice, spelt, and corn as well as ancient grains like millet, quinoa, and more. Because of this, a grain-free diet excludes most commercial pastas, breads, and many desserts because they’re typically made from grain-based flours. Thankfully, there’s never been an easier time to follow a grain-free diet. From flours to baking mixes, there are tons of products that satisfy the grain-free diet. Take wraps, for example. At first it may seem like grains are imperative to making a quality wrap. However, with a little research, you will find that there are plenty of other excellent alternatives! Just watch, here are 10 products that prove you don’t need grains to make an awesome wrap.
1. Paleo Coconut Wraps
Low carb as well as grain and gluten free, these Paleo Coconut Wraps are an excellent alternative to a traditional tortilla. And they’re made with just three ingredients – coconut meat, coconut water, and unrefined coconut oil. At about $14 per pack of 7, these wraps are definitely more expensive than your typical tortilla, but some reviewers have shared, the quality is definitely “worth the money.” Apparently they also have a mild coconut flavor so opt for these only if you’re looking for a wrap with a subtly sweet undertone.
2. Wrawp Chia RawBerri Flat Bread Wraps
Wrawp Chia RawBerri Flat Bread Wraps are raw, vegan, gluten-free, paleo, and have the texture of fruit leather. They can be enjoyed in wraps, sandwiches, or as a simple snack. Their mild fruity flavor comes from the mixture of banana, coconut, and strawberry and adds a unique touch to your meal. Wrawp even says they can be used like nori! The chia seeds are a nice touch and all of the flatbread is dehydrated, which keeps all of the vitamins and minerals where you want them – in the wrap! Each pack is a little over $9 and can make six servings.
3. Sushi Party Soy Wrappers
To put a fun and colorful twist on your meals, you have to try these Sushi Party Soy Wrappers. They are made primarily with soybean protein and are given their bright vibrant color naturally through spinach, paprika, and turmeric. And don’t get thrown off by the $58 price tag, bulk purchasing is definitely the way to go here. Instead of $8 for 1 pack (which is also available on Amazon), this 24-pack purchase breaks down to about $2.50 a pack. Amazing deal alert!
4. Green Leaf Foods Raw Spinach Wraps
Gluten-free, paleo, and soy-free, Green Leaf Foods Raw Spinach Wraps are a great way to sneak some extra veggie goodness into your diet. Each bag has five large, low-sodium wraps which are high in antioxidants, and are a good source of fiber. This $12 pack requires no refrigeration and apparently stays good for a whole year. One thing to note about these earthy wraps, though, they are packed pretty tightly together, so make sure to un-stick them very careful as to not waste a single one!
5. Siete Almond Flour Tortillas
Siete Almond Flour Tortillas are paleo and ideal for people who are keeping gluten and grains out of their diets. They’re also good for people who are just trying to avoid the high carb load of standard tortillas. These simply need to be warmed slightly and then they are ready for all of your wrap needs! For a little over $20 you get 16 quality tortillas, which is a little on the steep side, but if they don’t offer these at your local supermarket, they might be worth the price.
6. Pure Wraps Coconut Wraps With Curry Flavor
Pure Wraps Coconut Wraps With Curry Flavor combine the texture and flexibility of coconut wraps with the savory flavor of curry to create a wrap that is grain-free but also ideal for all of your savory creations. These wraps are gluten-free, paleo, and raw and are made with just three ingredients – coconut meat, curry powder, and Himalayan salt. For $5 you get four wraps, which we gotta say, is probably a better deal than anything you’ll get at a restaurant. You can store these in the fridge, Pure Wraps simply urges that you don’t freeze them!
7. One Organic Nori Wraps
While seaweed-based One Organic Nori Wraps are traditionally used for sushi, you can also use them for wraps! Made with just one ingredient, these wraps are packed with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and are a low-calorie food. Many reviewers have stuffed these with the typical sushi staples – sticky rice, cucumbers, carrots, soy sauce – while others have opted to make fusion meals like Nori soup or pizza! Which route you take is ultimately yours. Can you believe that for $11 you get 50 sheets?! Amazing.
8. Wrawp Spicy Flatbread Wraps
Do you like your wraps with a little kick to them? Then Wrawp Spicy Flatbread Wraps are what you’re looking for. These wraps are made with zucchini, apple, flax seeds, and coconut and seasoned with turmeric, cayenne pepper, and black salt, and reviewers share that the taste is hearty and flavorful. They have a nice firm texture and just need to be warmed. If you like your tortillas a little softer, simply add a bit of water (a little goes a long way) and the wrap will absorb all the moisture and soften naturally. For a little over $9 you get six servings worth.
9. Paleo Turmeric Wraps
These Paleo Turmeric Wraps are a low-calorie, low-carb, and gluten-free option that is perfect for people who want the benefits of coconut flour-based wraps but don’t necessarily want the slight sweetness they add. Plus you get the added health benefits of turmeric! These are a bit pricy, coming in at almost $13, but if Amazon reviewers are any indication, they are worth the price!
10. WrawP Spirulina Flat Bread Wrap
Wrawp Spirulina Flat Bread Wraps have all the same texture as Wrawp’s other flatbread wraps, but with the added benefit of spirulina! The nutrient-packed blue-green algae is high in protein, antioxidants, and B vitamins, instantly transforming your lunch from a regular meal into a nutrient powerhouse!
