Low Carb Luxury: Recipe - Homemade Low-Carb Tortillas
I tend to turn any cooking from scratch into something of a mess. But I'll try your recipe, thanks for the research.

This may be of some help. I have not found a low carb and low sodium tortilla yet. Corn tortillas are usually lower in carbs and sodium than flour. I did find a very good salt-free, sugar-free seasoning company that has a natural salt substitute called Table Tasty. If you mix it with their Bravado Chili Seasoning it tastes like Doritos. I sprinkle it on unsalted corn chips and it is really good. I also sprinkle it on jicama and nuts. I use this combination to make a taco filling and place it inside of a lettuce leaf for a low carb taco. This is their website.

Mission extra thin yellow corn tortillas has what I am looking for. Two tortillas contain 16 g of total carbohydrates (2 g of fiber) and 10 mg of sodium. I have passed by these many times in the store, but I didn't read the serving size on the nutrition label close enough. I was thinking the nutrition info applied to one tortilla not two.
I eat wraps at lunch and switching tortillas will reduce my sodium intake significantly with a little rise in my carb intake, but manageable.

Thanks, everyone! Good health!

Those Mission tortillas look like a good find. I looked them up and there is also a white corn variety available with similar nutritional values.

How many are you eating in a day? I have to watch my sodium and carbs too and I have one a day. That fits in with my sodium level for the day.

I guess it also depends on what you're putting on it too.

I know this is super late but Trader Joe's has tortillas with 130mg sodium and 10 grams of carbs ( 7 grams of which is fiber) and are only 45 calories. They are big as well. The only problem is the fact that they spoil quickly but given the low sodium content, that is a given.
