Question Tumaro's Tortilla's

Has anyone tried these? I found the Low-in-Carbs 8" multi grain flavor and they are great!

I do have a question on how to count them though.

Here's the dietary information:

100 calories
25 calories from fat
Total Fat 2.5g 4%
Saturated Fat 0g 0%
Trans Fat 0g
Cholesterol 0mg 0%
Sodium 115mg 5%
Total Carbohydrate 13g 4%
Dietary Fiber 8g 32%
Sugars 1g
Protein 7g
INGREDIENTS: WATER, OAT FIBER, WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR,
SOY BEAN FLOUR, WHEAT GLUTEN, CANOLA OIL, ALUMINUM FREE BAKING POWDER (SODIUM PYROPHOSPHATE, SODIUM BICARBONATE, CORN STARCH, MONOCALCIUM PHOSPHATE), CALCIUM PROPIONATE *, LECITHIN, MONO-DIGLYCERIDES*, SALT, SESAME SEED FLOUR, ALMOND MEAL, XANTHAN GUM, GUAR GUM, FUMARIC ACID*, POTASSIUM SORBATE*, SODIUM METABISULFITE*.
*USED TO MAINTAIN FRESHNESS
*ALL MONO - DIGLYCERIDES AND NATURAL FLAVORS ARE DERIVED FROM PLANT SOURCES
ALLERGEN INFORMATION: CONTAINS WHEAT, SOY, ALMOND MEAL, & SESAME FLOUR. PROCESSED IN A FACILITY THAT HAS SOY, ALMOND MEAL AND SESAME FLOUR.


Would half of a tortilla equal one starch like on the colored plans? (I'm on the "old" Gold plan where half of a six inch tortilla counted as one starch)
Or because this is multi grain and the net carbs are 5, would a whole tortilla count as one starch?

Thanks for any help!

Well, generaly speaking a 6 in tortilla is 1 starch, but this is a little bigger than that, it has more fat, but it also has more fiber. You would probably be ok calling is 1 starch

I was told by my COD that one starch serving should be max 110 calories. This fits the bill.
