Frequently Asked Questions
Are Wraps Healthier Than Bread?
There is very little to actually suggest that wraps are inherently healthier than bread. This is because they are actually made in a very similar way, using very similar ingredients.
It is easy to assume that wraps are healthier than bread because they are much thinner, but they both have very similar nutritional values to one another.
A single tortilla wrap is comparable to two slices of average bread.
Is a Wrap Better Than A Sandwich?
In terms of pure nutritional value, no, a sandwich is actually usually much better for you.
This is because, though wraps may look like they are much healthier, all of the nutrition and all the protein and fiber are condensed into a much smaller form, making them more filling, and slightly more unhealthy.
The only thing that could make a wrap healthier than a sandwich is the contents within it.
How Do You Make Wraps Not Soggy?
One of the worst problems with wraps is that they can quite easily become very wet, which causes them to fall apart, ruining the eating experience.
In order to avoid such a situation, you should try to avoid overstuffing your wrap with wet ingredients.
If you have wet ingredients in your wrap, ensure that there are some dry and even absorbent ingredients that can soak up excess moisture.
As well as this, if you are eating a wrap that has plenty of wet ingredients, then you should aim to eat it as soon as you can, as allowing the moisture to soak into the tortillas will cause them to soften and crumble in your hands as you try to eat!
