Food For Life's Sprouted Corn Tortillas Review

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post on behalf of Whole Foods Market.

When shopping for food at the grocery store, if you are trying to stick to the "healthier" items, you should check the ingredient label and choose the item that is made with the least amount of ingredients, and ingredients that are artificial, or difficult to pronounce.  One such food product that is an excellent example of this is Food For Life's Sprouted Corn Tortillas.  

Food for Life's Sprouted Corn Tortillas contain only four ingredients: Organic Sprouted Corn, Filtered Water, Sea Salt, and Lime.  As you can see, these are all natural ingredients.  No preservatives, nothing artificial.  It is all natural, certified organic, certified kosher, high fiber, yeast-free, and vegan.  

Just for comparison, here's the ingredient list for another brand of corn tortillas:  "Corn masa flour, water, cellulose gum, propionic acid (to preserve freshness), benzoic acid (to preserve freshness), phosphoric acid (preservative), guar gum, amylase."

Between the two brands, which product would you choose?    

I recently received the opportunity from Whole Foods Market to try Food For Life's Sprouted Corn Tortillas. 

Here's what the packaging looks like.  Look for it in one of the refrigerated displays at your local Whole Foods Market.

Here's what each tortillas looks like.

To make tortilla chips, cut each tortilla into 6 pieces.



Then fry them in canola oil. They cook quickly, so keep an eye on them.


After frying, let cool on a paper towel (to absorb the excess oil).  

I served these with with fresh salsa from Whole Foods Market and they were a hit.  The chips were crunchy and tasted just like chips that you'd eat at a restaurant. 


Food For Life's Sprouted Corn Tortillas are also great for making taco bowls for taco salad.  Microwave your tortillas in a damp paper towel for 45 seconds.


Spray cooking spray on each side of each tortilla...


and place on an upside down muffin baking pan.  Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.  I had a hard time making a perfectly shaped taco bowl with these tortillas, but they still tasted great!
