View Full Version : Ezekiel Tortilla's

Can anyone tell me if I can have the Ezekiel Tortilla's? The package says they are made with raw sprouts and they are for live food diets. Thanks to anyone who responds.

Well, what I believe, is that they do sprout the grain. But then they cook the tortillas probably on some kind of griddle. They are cooked!

The reason I was wondering if we could have them is because I read Carol Alt's new book about eating raw. She eats them. The package says that they are cooked at a very low temp and it keeps the spouts alive. I don't know, I was hoping anyway because they look pretty good.

Kim120, perhaps the best thing you can do is call or write the company. I would not bet my life on it, but I bet they are cooked above 115 degrees.
Hope this helps, and sorry I don't have all the answers! --Tracy

Thanks for responding Tracy. I am sure you are right. I don't want to mess up my 100% raw. I keep reading in the journals how everyone feels so yucky when they cheat with cooked food. I don't want that. I am on day 5 yipee!

Tracy I would not be in a hurry to prejudge these companies like that. More and more I am finding raw food in my health food store, maybe they use a dehydrator to slowly cook them. I was thinking of trying to make some in my dehydrator, can't be that hard to do.

Things can be made with raw and living foods, but unless they say "RAW" on the container, they aren't. Hence Braggs.
As far as I know the Ezekiel breads and tortilla's are cooked.
You can make your own tortillas without cooking, buy sprouting either wheat berries, or kamut or spelt, and then grinding them and mixing them with oil and water and a dash of salt, then dehydrate them.
I've done this and they are really good.

Hmm this to me says dehydrated. :)
The package says that they are cooked at a very low temp and it keeps the spouts alive.
