[Lean Foods] Damascus Flax Roll Ups — The Best Low Carb Wrap (6g Net Carbs) You Never Knew Existed
Party up. The wrap game is about to flip inside out.
Wraps and tortillas, even when whole wheat, are stealthy, carb-bloated caloric bombs. Stop for a second and digest what’s in a few big brands:
- Mission 12″ Whole Wheat Wraps: 290 calories, 7g fat, 750mg sodium, 50g carbs, 6g fiber, 44g net carbs, 9g protein
- Thomas’ Whole Wheat Sahara Wraps: 170 calories, 4.5g fat, 320mg sodium, 27g carbs, 4g fiber, 23g net carbs, 5g protein, contain trans fat
- Cedar’s Whole Wheat Wraps: 220 calories, 4.5g fat, 480mg sodium, 38g carbs, 3g fiber, 35g net carbs, 6g protein
- Baja Sun-Dried Tomato Wraps: 210 calories, 5g fat, 620mg sodium, 36g carbs, 1g fiber, 35g net carbs, 5g protein, contain trans fat
That’s unreal. Before you even get to the meat, veggies, eggs, dressings, etc. pinwheeled inside, you’re already 220+ calories & 37g+ of empty carbs deep (on average) on something that’s realistically only holding the flavor in place. Throw in that most commercial wraps are loaded with trans fats, artificial colors, preservatives, and about a billion ingredients, and everything quickly spirals out of control.
Frankly, that’s a complete waste on any diet, but especially killer if you’re on a cal-restricted or low carb diet.
Damascus Bakeries completely overhauls the wrap landscape with their uber-healthy, ridiculously lean Flax Roll-ups.
One MASSIVE roll-up packs a slender 110 calories, 15g carbs, and 9g of fiber, which funnels down to only 6g total net carbs; 1000 mg of heart-healthy ALA omega-3’s from flax; and a whopping 12g of muscle-building protein.
Their versatility makes them perfect for packaging protein-heavy breakfast burritos, huevos rancheros, sandwiches, personal pizzas, PB & J, or even mock-sushi rolls; all while simultaneously eviscerating hunger and cutting out unnecessary carbs and cals.
Use Damascus’ store locator to find out where they’re available near you.
