We're talking tortilla wraps here!
My home made flour tortillas - Ingredients:
Unbleached Organic Flour, Salt, Olive Oil, Water.
Just 4 simple ingredients.
Here they are pictured behind the homemade wedges and waiting to be served as honey and lime steak fajitas along with homemade guacamole, salsa and some sour cream.
Do commercially prepared wraps have an ingredients list like this:
Wheat Flour, Water, Palm Oil, Humectant: Glycerine; Raising Agents: Disodium Diphosphate, Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate; Emulsifier: Mono- and Diglycerides of Fatty Acids; Acidity Regulator: Malic Acid; Stabilisers: Carboxymethylcellulose, Guar Gum; Dextrose, Salt, Preservatives: Potassium Sorbate, Calcium Propionate; Flour Treatment Agent: Ascorbic Acid.
A total of 15!!! ingredients,
and even buying those labelled as organic are little better having 10 ingredients:
Organic Wheat Flour, Water, Organic Vegetable Oil, Humectant: Glycerine, Organic Sugar, Sea Salt, Raising Agents: Calcium Phosphate, Sodium Carbonate, Organic Spirit Vinegar, Deactivated Yeast.
I really hate how we have to read the labels on everything these days as nothing seems to be how you would expect it to be. I know I love cooking but sometimes - just once in a while, I want to be able to grab something quick and convenient so that our evening meal can be on the table without a long preparation time once I get home from work.
Guess I'll just have to get organised enough to batch cook and freeze stuff eh!
