Folios Cheese Wraps are the original cheese wraps: lightly baked sheets of 100% cheese, available in Parmesan, Jarlsberg, Cheddar, and new Mozzarella. Naturally free of gluten and containing just 1 gram of carbs, the wraps have taken health food communities by storm, solidifying themselves as a must-have kitchen staple.

As folks are feeling the effects of harmful foods on their weight and their physical and mental health, nutritious diets and lifestyles have gained popularity, and demand for healthy food alternatives has risen in turn. Many diets today call for the restriction or elimination of processed ingredients, as well as gluten in some cases, as care for celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity have improved.

Among the most popular diets of recent years among people both with and without gluten intolerance is the ketogenic diet (also known as keto), which involves altered macronutrient proportions of about 5% carbohydrates, 20% protein, and 75% healthy fats. As a general rule, the ingredients used in a keto diet should also be whole and fresh, and ultra-processed foods should be avoided.

While keto has gained popularity largely due to the quick effect it can have on a person’s weight, perhaps the most important benefits lie beyond the numbers on the scale:

  • Improve heart health: Lower carb consumption has been found to significantly reduce triglycerides – associated with heart disease – and increase HDL levels in the blood – which promotes heart health.
  • Manage metabolic syndrome: The keto diet can help control blood sugar and blood pressure and improve cholesterol. This can be helpful for metabolic syndrome, which is known to increase the risk of diabetes and heart disease.
  • Help with diabetes: Low-carb dieting has been found to help manage insulin resistance, which can be beneficial for individuals with diabetes.
  • Reduce excess fat: Low-carb diets are very effective at decreasing harmful fat in the abdominal cavity, known as ‘visceral fat,’ which, in excess, is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease and insulin resistance.
  • Improve skin health: As well as managing blood sugar levels, the keto diet can have anti-inflammatory effects. Together, these effects can positively impact the health of one’s skin.
  • Possible anti-cancer effects: By reducing overall body weight and stabilizing blood sugar, the keto diet may be effective in preventing certain forms of cancer. Ketogenic eating may also help slow tumor growth, reduce inflammation, and more.

When trying any new diet, often people’s first (and sometimes even second or third) question is, “where do I start?” Aside from discussing your plans with your doctor, a good place to start is, naturally, the kitchen! There’s no preparing and cooking healthy meals if we don’t have the ingredients for them.

But updating your kitchen to match your lifestyle doesn’t have to involve buying half the grocery store. Having some nutritious staples around which you can build your meals is a huge help, and that’s where Folios Cheese Wraps come in. Loaded with protein, calcium, and healthy fats, Folios Cheese Wraps are the perfect starting point or accessory to any low-carb meal.

All varieties of Folios Cheese Wraps are naturally grain-, lactose-, and hormone-free, and are made without added sugars or additives, making them great for not just low-carb eaters, but for any health-conscious foodie. They are the best alternative to highly processed foods such as chips and taco shells, and are a perfect low-carb, gluten-free substitute for bread, tortillas, and even other cheeses.

But how can a cheese wrap replace so many different food items? Being lightly baked and as thin as a tortilla (or even thinner), Folios Cheese Wraps are the perfect consistency for crisping, melting, or eating cold. This means that not only do they vastly increase your keto-friendly meal options, but they also decrease the number of cheese products you need on-hand in general.

While the fresh flavors of Folios Cheese Wraps can speak for themselves, the hidden treasure is in all the unique and unexpected ways they can be used. Keto and gluten-free foodies understand the struggle of enjoying old favorite meals in a way that still tastes great. Folios Cheese Wraps offer a solution to that problem.

For example, lifelong pizza lovers will understand the heartbreak that can stem from dull, flavorless gluten-free crusts. Now you can ditch the dough and instead crisp up a Folios Cheese Wrap or two instead for a base to build your pizza. Plus, you don’t even need to buy a different cheese for the topping – simply melt a Folios Cheese Wraps Mozzarella on top instead.

Foodies are encouraged to get creative with them as well, such as using a Folios Cheese Wrap in place of lasagna noodles, swapping out wonton wraps for cheesy dumplings, creating a delicious calzone, or rolling up a calcium-rich sushi roll.

Perhaps one of the most popular uses for Folios Cheese Wraps is in place of crunchy snacks like chips, crackers, and even taco shells and bowls. They can easily be crisped up in the oven or microwave for a variety of uses. Cut them into triangles or other interesting shapes for a cheesy chip alternative, shape them over a paper towel roll or in a bowl for a ketogenic taco shell or bowl. And of course, they can always be enjoyed simply and traditionally, as a low-carb and high-calcium tortilla alternative for wraps and roll-ups.

Switching to Folios Cheese Wraps over traditional alternatives like chips, tortillas, noodles, and more, may also quickly provide some relieving effects, as the elimination of grain, lactose, and even gluten for some, can help decrease inflammation throughout the body.

With so many of us living busy lives, it can be difficult to maintain a healthy diet, as fast food drive-thru lanes and the grab-and-go sections of grocery and convenience stores are generally packed with unhealthy, processed foods full of preservatives. Our lasting health relies on us making healthy choices, and often those begin in the grocery store. So next time, instead of grabbing the wrap from the cooler, take the Folios Cheese Wraps.
