Sandwich Petals, Interesting New Product

I have recently tried a new product that I thought was pretty good so I wanted to pass this review onto the Gluten Free Durham reader. Since going gluten free I rarely eat sandwiches. The bread is often so dense and high in calories and carbohydrates that I opt to skip the bread. Well, the Sandwich Petal may be my answer to a palatable wrap like sandwich. I ordered this product after reading about it on the web. It is described as a "gluten free athletic flatbread". Available in three varieties: spinach garlic pesto, chimayo red chile and agave grain and only 90 calories,and 21 g carbs per wrap. The wraps are made of 10 different grains including: corn,flax, sesame, buckwheat, brown rice, sorghum, millet, quinoa,teff and amaranth and offer 3 grams of dietary fiber per serving. The wraps are also free of dairy, egg, peanut, tree nut shell fish, and soy.Products are lab tested by the American Institute of Baking to be Gluten Free testing at less than 20 PPM. The wraps are a nice size and after warming for 30 seconds in the microwave roll nicely without breaking! The product can be stored at room temperature for 30 days, so no fuss with needing to defrost something before preparing your meal. The company has been offering a discount on Mondays: BUY ONE GET ONE FREE for further information click here.

I went to their site, but couldn't find how much sodium these wraps have in them. Could you tell me?
I have to follow a low sodium diet and a gluten free diet, it's hard to find low sodium bread.

Thanks for your help!

Oh, btw, I couldn't get your link to the sandwich petal site to work, it just went back to the top of your post. I just googled it.

Each wrap contains 135 mg of sodium. I plan to blog about a great low sodium resource soon, stay tuned! Thanks for the tip about the link, it has been fixed.
