Ugh, read the ingredients. First off, I can almost guarantee they're made of wheat, which is awful. Second, I bet an ingredient will be "cellulose". If so, that's wood. Yes, the "fiber" is actually legitimate wood chips added to the tortilla. Do you know many traditional human diets full of wood? I'm guessing not.
No thanks, I'll pass on those low-carb tortillas. I'd rather eat a normal wheat flour tortilla than wood. I have whole corn and brown rice tortillas at home, where the only ingredients are "corn, water and lime" and "brown rice and water", respectively. If you must have a tortilla, go with these. Who cares if it's higher carb at this point? At least you're eating actual food. Corn tortillas aren't particularly unhealthy if the only ingredients are masa harina and water. At this point, it's just starch, and corn isn't any higher in anti-nutrients than coconut is. The only issue is the carb count, which I often embrace.
Or you could look up recipes for coconut flour tortillas. Tropical Traditions has one on their site, as well as some posted here on this forum if you do a search.
Cliffnotes: High-carb real food is much better than low-carb fake food. There is a lot more to nutrition than carbohydrate count.
