The multiple applications of tortillas make them an essential part of every well-stocked bakery department. Retailers looking to meet both this demand and the demand from consumers with differing health requirements should look no further than Food For Life Baking Co.’s latest launch. Its Ekeziel 4:9 Sprouted Flourless Flax Tortillas are plant-based, organic, and oh so delicious.
“We love the added health boost and flavor profile that flax seeds contribute to our latest tortilla recipe,” said Gary Torres, Company Principal. “Flax seeds are a great source of soluble fiber, lignans, and omega3 fatty acids, which cannot be produced by the human body but are vital for overall health. Studies have even shown that flax seeds can also help promote cardiovascular health.”
According to a press release, the plant-based tortillas are made with freshly sprouted live grains and flax seeds. They are not made with refined flour, artificial ingredients, or preservatives. Each tortilla has 150 calories, 3.5 g fat, 7 g protein, and 5 g dietary fiber.
Located in the freezer aisle, these tortillas make adding a slice of the bakery to a shoppers’ home easy. Not everyone associates tortillas with bread, but they also haven’t seen these tortillas being used for wraps, burritos, tacos, and so much more.
Like all Ezekiel 4:9 products, the Flax Tortillas are made from a unique combination of freshly sprouted grains and legumes that provide a source of complete protein. Food For Life has an exclusive sprouting process that releases important enzymes which maximize nutritional content and promote better digestion.
We’re looking forward to seeing what’s next from the brand, so stay tuned.
