Ancient Grains Tortillas…Flat Out Fantastic!

Posted by: Greta on: April 9th, 2008  »  3 comments

I get so excited when I make a healthy food-product discovery while grocery shopping. I’m always on the lookout for interesting products that I can incorporate into my recipes or snack on while sitting at my desk. Recently, on one of my zillion weekly trips to the supermarket, I was thrilled to spot Dempster’s Ancient Grains Tortillas dangling in the bread section beside their whole-wheat cousins! I immediately scrambled for my cell phone to call Janet and let her in on the BIG news. (Yes, this is big news for us! We lead pretty dull lives!) You see, we’ve been buying Ancient Grains bread for ages and we even did a TV commercial about it earlier this year…but tortillas?! How ingenious! We love our breakfast banana roll-ups with almond butter (see blog entry: The Real Fruit Roll-Up) and now we can make them even healthier with Ancient Grains tortillas.

“Dempster’s® WholeGrains™ Ancient Grains tortillas are made with a blend of Kamut, Spelt, Quinoa, and Amaranth, all staples of ancient civilizations. These nutritious and flavourful grains are rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fibre and complex carbohydrates.” (Yes, I copied that right from their website, if you’re wondering!) Anyway, I’ve put these tasty tortillas to the test and absolutely love them. They’re perfect in my morning banana roll up and work extremely well in my Mexican Lasagna, too. I think they’d be great for making wraps or dunking in hummus. Look for them in the bread section on your next shopping trip–I’m sure you’ll like them as much as I do!

    I was excited when I saw these in the grocery store as well. Very yummy. I love them for wraps.

    I’m anxious to try these, because I’ve found the Dempster’s breads to have a few too many long, difficult-to-pronounce, preservative-type mystery words in their ingredients list. Ditto for any of the store bought varieties of tortillas I’ve tried, to the point that I’ve resorted to making my own tortillas, (which are easy and far superior to the store bought ones I’ve tried so far). However, as a mother of four kids, some with giant appetites, this isn’t always practical, so I’m hoping these ones you’re promoting are fairly clear of additives. That WOULD be flat-out fantastic!

    Good morning ladies,

    I have been watching your TV Commercial where one of you, horror of horrors, is using a metal spatula to lift the pennini off the grill.

    There is a reason that I don’t left my wife to any of the cooking in the house. She has ruined so many non-stick pans, pots, etc, by using her metal stuff on my non-stick cooking surfaces.

    Each time I see your commercial where you are lifting off the sandwich off that grill with that metal spatula, I cringe.

    I have tried to contact Demster to get them to at least take that sound bite out.

    Otherwise, you have hit the nail on the head with this great bread.
