A bit time consuming, but well worth it. I no longer buy tortillas, because as you said the contents are scary. Most I have seen around here in Northern California are 97% fat free, but still made with some form of oil.

Alternatively you can visit them in East London (10 min walk from Bethnal Green tube station).
They also sell a tortilla press for Â£17.50 if you want to make your own the traditional way. (Actually the really traditional way is to pat a ball of masa dough between your hands until it forms a perfect circle. I lived in Mexico for 6 months when I was in my 20s and never mastered this!)

I've not found any corn tortillas (oil free) in the UK yet.
I use khobez oil free wraps that I get from ocado but they are quite thick. The kingsmill 50/50 ones are not as good ingredients wise but are oil free and I have had to use them very occasionally when I run out of the others.
Alternatively I make my own chappatis/pittas/flatbreads. I have tried making tortillas but not with much success.
Yer I'm gonna order from ocado at some point. I just checked the ingredients for those kingsmill wraps, they have emulsifiers in, which is like, added fats innit?

I've only had the kingsmill ones once or twice but not again! I don't really buy many processed things and must have missed that on label reading. Think I need new glasses...
