Give the mountain rye bread 13 carbs per wrap or mountain oat bread 10.5 carbs per wrap a try. I jam mine full of lettuce, ham and whatever and find it makes a satisfying quick meal at same or lower carbs that the subway wrap and a lot cheaper than buying the wraps alone from subway. I used to miss bread the most until I discovered these.

On the subject of the subway wraps - my local shop looked it up and they were being made in SA somewhere. Now it is possible that they were incorrect in this information - but if they are right then some bakery manufacturer here in aus at least knows how to make them. Now we just need some company to take it on.
Have not tried them yet - hope to do that soon. I would not be surprised if the Empower Wraps mentioned above are the same as Tony Ferguson wraps. The nutritional information is identical. Have not tried Empower wraps as they are closed over Christmas.
Wraps make a great lunch - heaps of LC salad, chicken or tuna.

You can get either online or in some health food shops Empower Wrap at approx. 3g carbs per wrap. Last time I got them they were about $7 for a pk of 7. These do fall apart easily but are great if you grill them and use them as chips or cook them in a sandwich maker.
A cheaper alternative and slightly higher carbs is Diego's brand Reduced Carb Wraps at around $4 for a pk of 6 and approx. 12g carb per wrap. Available through IGA stores and online.
