Tumaros Garden Tortillas

Last night my daughter and I were in a different part of town and decided to check out a grocery store that we don’t normally shop. I saw some organic tortillas in the natural section of the store. Upon my daughter’s further examination we found that it also included mono-diglycerides, fumaric acid, potassium sobrate, guar gum, cellulose gum, monogycerides, enzymes, blue #1, yellow #5, sodium metabisulate (used to maintain freshness), and some other ingredients that I am not too such whether they are just the scientific names of “natural ingredients” or whether they are ingredients to be avoided.

The back of the package says that it is 88 % organic ingredients…many the organic unbleached wheat flour and organic whole wheat flour. It also brags that there is no cholesterol and no lard is 95 % fat free, and has the American Heart Association’s seal of approval. My daughter did not want to purchase these, she thought we should continue looking in regular part of the store to find some tortillas that didn’t have the added ingredients.

So leave me a comment. What do you think? Is this a good “healthy” tortilla or not.
