are tortillas bad for you and your skin?

Im a BIG tortilla eater and there not the wheat ones either, so i just wany to know how bad they are for my skin? thanks!

I guess how "bad" they are pretty much depends on how gluten hypersensitive you are. Maybe the Glycemic load/index of the tortillas also.

why don't you just get the low GI ones? (ie whole grain) they even make them with flax seeds in them..ridiculously convenient if you are concerned about your skin.

FLOUR Tortillas have:

  • White Flour
  • Salt
  • Baking Powder
  • Shortening

Those above are no good...

CORN Tortillas are pretty much the same thing, but woth Corn Flour

Not good either...

Thought I'd post the pic, it looks kind cool. :)IPB Image

most flour tortillas have partially hydrogenated oils in them, which aren't good for acne. but corn tortillas usually dont, so i think they are fine..or if you could find flour ones without the partially hydrogenated oils in them i think they'd be fine.
