Ole Exteme Wellness High Fiber Wraps: Taste and Nutrition

Ole Exteme Wellness High Fiber Wraps: Taste and Nutrition

When shopping at the grocery store I try to purchase foods that pack as much nutrition as possible for their calorie punch. Tortillas and wraps, I have discovered, are often a great low calorie source of whole grains and fiber. Lower in calories than most whole grain breads, tortillas and wraps are the perfect, nutritious replacement for the typical sandwich bread. I recently discovered Ole Extreme Wellness High Fiber Wraps. Admittedly, I laughed at the name, “Extreme Wellness” but after checking the nutrition facts, and trying out the product first hand, I think the name is actually quite accurate.

Ole Extreme Wellness High Fiber Wraps are typical whole grain tortillas found in the Mexican food section of your local grocery store. The unrefrigerated tortillas seemed like any other whole wheat tortillas, until I carefully checked the label. Ole Extreme Wellness High Fiber Wraps have whole wheat flour as their second ingredient, after water, making them a great source of whole grains. Ole Extreme Wellness High Fiber Wraps also have an incredible amount of fiber—12 grams. That’s 48% of your daily value! When I read that Ole Extreme Wellness High Fiber Wraps were so high in fiber I quickly assumed that they must be high in calories as well. Thankfully I was mistaken for one Ole Extreme Wellness High Fiber Wrap has just 71 calories.

Okay, so if Ole Extreme Wellness High Fiber Wraps have managed to squeeze almost half of your daily value of fiber into only 71 little calories, they must taste like cardboard and crack as soon as you try to roll them, right? In reality, I find the slightly nutty flavor of Ole Extreme Wellness High Fiber Wraps to be quite nice. In fact, I couldn’t really tell the difference between Ole Extreme Wellness High Fiber Wraps and my typical whole wheat tortillas, which have less than half the fiber. The texture of Ole Extreme Wellness High Fiber Wraps is quite soft and they easily wrap around my favorite foods to create burritos and cold wraps.

Ole Extreme Wellness High Fiber Wraps also have just 2 grams of fat, no sugar, only 5 energy-boosting carbohydrates, 4% of your iron, and 6% of your calcium in each tortilla.

There are only two minor drawbacks to Ole Extreme Wellness High Fiber Wraps. First of all, they are more expensive than some other brands on the market. I paid $3.19 for a package of Ole Extreme Wellness High Fiber Wraps whereas my typical brand costs just $2.29. Also, Ole Extreme Wellness High Fiber Wraps are a little high in sodium with 234mg, or 10% of your daily value, in just one tortilla. These two factors, however, have certainly not kept me from purchasing these nutritional powerhouses.

If you are looking for a way to get more fiber in your diet, Ole Extreme Wellness High Fiber Wraps are the way to go. Many high fiber breads are also high in calories, but Ole Extreme Wellness High Fiber Wraps manage to give consumers the best of both worlds in one tasty little tortilla.
