The debut of low-carb flour tortillas coincides with the unveiling of new redesigned packaging for the entire La Tortilla Factory low-carb product line.
“The new package has a better organized nutrition label and enables consumers to see more of the tortilla for increased appetite appeal,” the company said.La Tortilla Factory’s line of low-carb tortillas is available at independent grocers and supermarkets nationwide.
