and I’m still thinking.
The hubby came across this package of Toufayan Bakeries Gluten Free Original Wraps during a recent trip to the local grocery store. He brought them home. We made some basic chicken wraps and we ate them.
I just haven’t decided if I like them or not.
Taste Test: How did the Toufayan Bakeries Gluten Free Original Wraps taste?
Under normal circumstances, I’d probably say the Toufayan Bakeries Gluten Free Original Wraps taste like your average wrap except that’s not true since my favourite wrap isn’t average. You see, my go-to absolute favourite wraps are Sarah’s Fine Foods Original Wraps. I know they’re not available worldwide yet but they are so yummy and so simply made that I wish everyone could try them. So, then when I ate the Toufayan Bakeries Gluten Free Original Wraps, I had a really hard time loving them because they just didn’t seem to measure up to my favourite brand.
I mean, our chicken wraps looked okay and they tasted okay.
You know they aren’t terrible if my big kid is willing to eat them but I wouldn’t say any of us were doing back flips for them. I’m trying to figure out why we’re so lukewarm about them.
Product Review: What ingredients are in the Toufayan Bakeries Gluten Free Original Wraps?
Maybe it has something to do with the long list of ingredients used to make these Toufayan Bakeries Gluten Free Original Wraps.
Here’s a list of all the ingredients used to make the Toufayan Bakeries Gluten Free Original Wraps: tapioca starch, water, rice flour, soybean flour, shortening (canola oil, palm and palm kernel), food starch modified (corn starch, tapioca starch), potato starch, contains 2% of less of each of the following: yeast, baking powder (calcium acid pyrophosphate, sodium bicarbonate, corn starch, monocalcium phosphate, calcium sulfate), whole eggs, fumaric acid, mono and diglyercides with citric acid (a preservative), maltodextrin, dextrose, xanthan gum, egg whites, calcium propionate (to maintain freshness), salt.
Wow, that was quite the long list and granted, the list isn’t horrible but it is long. My favourite brand uses only 5 ingredients so that long list of ingredients unsettles me a bit.
Then again, it could also have something to do with the taste and texture of these Toufayan Bakeries Gluten Free Original Wraps. We warmed them up in a pan just like we do with all our other wraps and they turned out fine. I’ve had plenty of gluten free products and I like a lot of them but there was something about the taste of these wraps that didn’t gel with me. The texture also seemed a little dry for my liking.
The Toufayan Bakeries Gluten Free Original Wraps are okay, I mean they’re not horrendous and in terms of ingredients used, they’re certainly better than some of the bigger brand names that are out on the market. On the other hand, each wrap (52 g) also dishes out 13% of your recommended daily intake of sodium. Compared to my favourite brand which only dishes out 3% sodium per wrap (50g), I’m not sure why all that salt is necessary.
I like that our family tried something new and I was certainly grateful that we got dinner on the table in decent time. I’m just on the fence about this product.
*still thinking and still undecided*
