Hi Gerry
Maybe the US is better than Canada, but I have a hard time finding decent wraps. Almost all of them here are made with "modified palm oil", I actually don't need to read the package anymore to know this, I can tell by touch (the slightly squelchy squishy texture they have), presumably this is put in to make them easier to roll up. The "Ezekiel" brand ones are about it for me here, they need a little steaming first but seem to have a pretty good ingredient list, even not too much salt.
Cheers, Steve
