I also buy corn tortillas too. But they are better for cooked foods instead of for wraps.

Corn tortillas are better than white wheat tortillas. But it's a toss up between whole wheat (much less the new added fiber ones) and corn. really depends at that point on your taste and what you are going to do.

I don't generally like corn raw, so if it's a wrap, i'm opting for the thinnest flour one i can find. But if it's a hot dish, i'd far rather have a corn wrapped and heated "burrito" (basically more like an enchlada).

I read that Corn Tortillas are better for you then flour. Is that true? Now I know allot of brands make low fat, low carb flour tortillas, such as Mission and LaTortilla Factory, but are they better for you then the corn? Mission makes a white corn tortilla with fiber, protein and low carbs for 55 calories. So the magic question is what one do you recommened?
