What Is Mission?
Mission Foods have been around since 1977. They make fresh and authentic Mexican products. From tortilla wraps to flatbreads, to chips, there’s so much choice. And guess what? They also offer a huge gluten-free product range. Yellow and white corn is used. Corn is naturally gluten-free, so it’s a great substitute for wheat when making tortillas.
Gluten-Free Mission Tortillas
It’s important to note that not all Mission products are gluten-free. It’s important to look at their Gluten-Free Collection and opt for ones that are gluten-free/grain-free. They are very clearly marked, which makes them easy to spot. Let’s take a look at what Mission products are gluten-free.

They are also prepared in a dedicated gluten-free facility. This is as safe as food can come for gluten intolerant individuals – so you can eat these and feel completely at ease.

These tortillas have a super soft texture and are made with very few ingredients. The ingredients include:
“corn masa flour, water, cellulose gum, guar gum, propionic acid, benzoic acid, phosphoric acid (for freshness).”

As you can probably tell, where gluten-free tortillas are concerned, we are spoilt for choice! Especially when it comes to Mission Gluten Free products. A brand that tries so hard to be inclusive for all of their audience is a winner for me. Mission offers so many gluten free options – but please remember, not all Mission products are gluten-free. If you’re feeling unsure, be sure to check the labels. It will always be clearly labelled.
