Corn tortillas have been around for ages

Corn has been a staple food in the Americas for thousands of years. South Americans use corn to make tortillas which are then made into a marvellous range of delicious and healthy meals, including burritos, tacos, nachos, quesadillas, taquitos and tortilla chips.

Gerry’s Wraps’ range of gluten-free corn tortillas is also made of corn sourced mostly from the Americas, which is where the best corn in the world grows.
