You can see Tiffany’s full review and see her pizza Petal recipe at: http://www.triumphdining.com/blog/gluten-free/2010/02/versatile-gluten-free-sandwich-petals/

Here is some of what Tiffany had to say about the Sandwich Petals:

“Gluten-free Sandwich Petals (aka flatbreads) from Raquelita’s are one of the most exciting things to hit the gluten-free market in a while.”

“One of the most remarkable things about these wraps (as I call them) is that they are shelf stable for a month. No freezing or refrigeration required! This actually sounded too good to be true to me, so I tested the claim.”

” The result was that the wraps were as good this week as they were four weeks ago. It’s quite shocking to think something this good, that is also good for you and only has 90 calories can sit out on the counter or in the pantry for so long and not go stale.”

“One of the most fun uses for the wrap is making pizzas with them. Seriously, the pizza was fabulous, even though the crust was anything but conventional.”

Review by: Gwinnett Gluten-Free Food Examiner – Jennifer Harris

You can see Gwinnett Gluten-Free Food Examiner’s full review at  http://ww.examiner.com/x-15981-Gwinnett-GlutenFree-Food-Examiner~y2010m2d9-Product-Review-Raquelitas-glutenfree-sandwich-petals-are-tasty-versatile-and-convenient.

Here is some of what Gwinnett Gluten-Free Food Examiner had to say about trying the Sandwich Petals:

“The petals are the perfect portion size (kind of shaped like a football) and come in three flavors: Spinach Garlic, Chimayo Red Chile and Agave Grain.”

 “The most interesting thing to me is that the petals are shelf stable at room temperature for 30 days without refrigeration.  That’s right, you can store them on the kitchen counter until ready to use.” 

” The petals need to be heating in the microwave for about 30 seconds, then rest for 30 seconds and become incredible flexible. They hold together better than a corn tortilla and have a better taste and texture.”

“You can really taste the blend of spices in each petal, but they don’t overpower whatever you fill them with.”

“One sandwich petal really does fill you up because they are slow digesting, so they curve your appetite for hours and promote increased absorption of nutrients. ”

“This is one gluten-free product that this Examiner will always keep on hand.  Now I have a go-to bread product for travel and at home that the whole family will enjoy.”

Common Q & A’s

Thursday, February 4th, 2010
  1. Q. Sandwich Petals shelf life? Can I freeze the Petals?

              A. Sandwich Petals have 180 day shelf life with no freezing or refrigeration required. We do not recommend you freeze the Petals because it can dry them out. However, if you would like to you can, just make sure the Petals are in their original package or sealed air tight. Freezing will add another 30 days of shelf life to your Sandwich Petals.

      2.    Q.  Do the Petals have to be refrigerated?

             A. No the Petals do not need to be refrigerated. They have a shelf life of 180 days with no freezing or refrigeration required. Just keep them air tight for freshness after opening, they will be just fine at room temperature.

    2.    Q. Can I substitute a flavor that I don’t like for another flavor in the Sandwich Petals variety box?

             A.  No substitutes are available at this time. You will receive the Sandwich Petals variety box with 2 bags of Agave, 2 bags of Spinach, and 2 bags of Red Chile.  We don’t have the man power to do custom orders at this time. Sorry!

       3.   Q. Can I track my order?

              A. Yes, you will receive an email from UPS Quantum View with a tracking number for your package, when it is getting ready to leave our facility.

       4.    Q.  Are Sandwich Petals certified Kosher?

               A. No, Sandwich Petals are not certified Kosher.

       5.   Q.  Is our product GMO (Genetically modified organisms) free?

              A.  Yes, Sandwich Petals are GMO free.

        6.  Q.  Are any of the grains in Sandwich Petals the GMO variety? I would be willing to pay more for your product if I could be guaranteed all the ingredients are non-GMO.

             A.  All the grains in Sandwich Petals are NON-GMO. We have never used any of the GMO grains in the over 40 years of making tortillas and in fact got a huge boost in our business a few years ago when others started using them. We are past that one and we don’t want you to pay us extra to do the right thing, okay? Just enjoy them, enjoy healthy eating and keep in touch with us, that is what we mostly want as truly this product was not born out of financial goals, rather we wanted us to make something that was so healthy and so delicious that it would be tastier to eat better!

      7.  Q.  Won’t microwaving the Sandwich Petals kill the prebiotics and other nutrients?

             A. On the microwave killing the prebiotics, PREbiotics will withstand and remain fully potent even after the baking procedure or in the microwave and on the shelf, where PRObiotics won’t withstand heat and unrefrigerated time and that is why we don’t use PRObiotics  in Sandwich Petals, PRObiotics would not have delivered full potency after baking or sitting on a shelf. We are so much about delivering what we tell you is in the bag. Here is something you may find amusing: We actually had a supplier tell me that their special brand of probiotics would be shelf stable after baking and when we told them about the testing we do and that if they lied to us they would be subject to a huge lawsuit they changed their sales pitch in a heart beat.

PREbiotics are actually a kind of dietary fiber that once in your digestive system, they act like seeds (if you will for example sake) to help your body produce more flora, where PRObiotics are the actual flora and are extremely sensitive to heat, shelf life and can lose potency very easily.  

On the microwave usage? Well we are asking people, at least in our labeling, not to cook but rather gently reheat them so the temperature should not get that high to lessen the potency of the nutrients we included.

       8.   Q.  How long until my order ships after I place my order?

              A.  It will take  approximately 3 days for your order to process and then ship out to you after your order is placed, Monday through Friday. No orders will be processed, shipped or delivered on the weekends. 

        9.   Q.  What shipping method does Sandwich Petals free shipping include?

               A.  All orders (within the Contiguous US) receive free shipping, and you will receive your Sandwich Petals UPS ground Monday through Friday. No orders will be delivered on the weekends. Shipping will take approximately 6-9 days for delivery(M-F) after your order is processed(M-F) depending on your delivery location. Orders are shipped from Denver, CO.

         10.  Q.  Can Sandwich Petals be shipped to Canada?

               A.  No, we are not able to ship to Canada.

          11.  Q.   Do I need to warm each Petal before I use the Petal?

                A. Yes, it is extremely encouraged to warm each Sandwich Petal before adding any ingredients or eating. Warm each Petal for 30 seconds to a minute, depending on your grill, oven or microwave. Warming each Petal will add flexibility, and make them softer and easier to work with before adding any ingredients or trying to roll them or fold them.

Review by: Gluten Free Durham (registered dietitian)

You can see Gluten Free Durham’s full review at: http://glutenfreedurham.blogspot.com/

Here is some of what Gluten Free Durham had to say:

“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.”

“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.”
