    The only thing is, they aren't actually 80 calories - there are 146. They are being disingenuous (or you could say dishonest) by only counting 'net' carbs. Your body will count all of 'em.. ;)

    Yes I know but tumaros did the same thing and I eat the same number per day and count them as 80 calories. If I were just adding them to my diet usually not having any, I would probably count them as the full 140.

    How do you know that they are 146 calories and not the 80 calories stated on the package? I'm wondering if all companies do this? How disingenuous indeed!!!

    Avocado toast. Sometimes three times a day. One slice of keto louis bake shop bread 30 calories and a small avocado, usually 100 calories. Some salt and pepper sprinkled on top. Totally obsessed at the moment.

    They calculate calories from net carbs not total carbs.

    Calories for one wrap
    26g carbs x 4 = 96
    8g protein x 4 = 32
    2g fat x 9 = 18
    total= 146 calories

    They do the "net carb" thing where they subtract the fiber from the carbs. I don't believe this at all. I eat plenty of fiber and I doubt adding fiber will make me not absorb almost 80g carbs. Most brand do this that have added fiber. Lenny and larry cookies, protein bars, all low calorie/carb bread and wraps. It is very deceptive.

    Noreen, Carb Smart are big ones and only 45 calories. And to me they taste just like regular tortillas. I honestly can’t taste a difference. They make great wraps.

    Dang y’all made me pull out a pack to confirm. We shop at Lidl. They’re selling La Banderita which is a popular local brand. Not sure if they’re sold all over.

    But 45 cal per piece. And no tricky “1/2” servings or anything.

    Omg this photo makes my hands look liverish!!!!! Isn’t that how they say is the best way to tell a woman’s age?!

    It has MILK in the name! I didn’t realize they advertised dairy free.
