Low-Carb Tortillas Make Their Debut

La Tortilla Factory, the family-owned brand that originated the low-carb tortilla category, is introducing its first Low-Carb Flour Tortilla. The new product is high in fiber, low-fat, and contains zero trans fats.

And because La Tortilla Factory does not use any hydrogenated oils, artificial sweeteners or aluminum baking powder in any of its products, the new low-carb flour tortillas are cholesterol-free and trans fat-free.

Ideal for those following a low-carb diet or seeking lower glycemic index foods (such as diabetics), La Tortilla Factory’s line of low-carb, high fiber tortillas are delicious and convenient. They’re available in four nutritious varieties: original whole wheat, large-size whole wheat, garlic & herb, and now traditional flour.

“We’re dedicated to providing our customers with great new products and our Low-Carb Flour Tortillas have both the flavor and nutrition our customers want and expect,” said Sam Tamayo, CEO of the third-generation, family-owned company. “La Tortilla Factory created the entire low-carb tortilla category, and we feel like this variety will complement our current one very nicely.”

The debut of Low-Carb Flour tortillas coincides with the unveiling of new redesigned packaging for the entire La Tortilla Factory low-carb product line. The new package has a better organized nutrition label and enables consumers to see more of the tortilla for increased appetite appeal.

La Tortilla Factory’s line of low-carb tortillas is available at independent grocers and supermarkets nationwide. The suggested retail price is $4.59 for a bag of eight tortillas.
