Tesco Healthy Living Seeded Wraps are reasonably priced at £1.29 for a packet of 8 wraps. The packets have to be kept in the fridge to stay fresh, and the contents have to be eaten within two days. It's important to note, because this is a much shorter shelf life than other, non-healthy living versions. Unless you're going to eat 8 wraps in two days, this isn't the packet for you!
We thought these were worth a try because they were marketed as being a healthy alternative to our usual tortilla wraps. But on checking the packet, there isn't actually that much difference. Each wrap has 175 calories in it, which is about average for a tortilla wrap. There's a lower fat content with only 1.6g per wrap though which fat-fighters will appreciate.
Taste wise, you can tell the fat is missing unfortunately. But they're not as bad as some healthy living products are. They've got a firm texture that softens when it's heated up. These work best when you heat them up a little, fill them, then heat them again. That way they stay firmly wrapped up. Fave toppings for me include cheese and bacon - which then goes nicely dipped in barbecue sauce. Just as well these are low fat eh?
The down side to the seeded aspect of these is that the little seeds can be a bit gritty and tough. I find that these can get stuck in my teeth a little, though generally they're not overly tough seeds and I don't notice them all that much. Linseed is quite good for you, which is what these contain (2%), so that's something to consider.
All in all, I do recommend these for those who are looking to cut back on a tiny bit of fat, and are trying to boost their health in general. The benefits of buying these over ordinary tortilla wraps is minimal, but it is there. And most importantly, they taste okay - especially once you've filled them with lots of tasty fillings.
