These are currently my favourite bread choice: the taste and texture are just like a regular pita and the serving size is large enough to hold plenty of filling, as well as satisfy the appetite. They hold up well to being stuffed with wet ingredients, microwaved, or frozen and thawed. Whenever I travel I take a bag of these with me, pre-sliced.

The only con for me: occasionally you come across a pita that won't split properly, but as that's common to other brands I've had I won't complain about it too much.

As well as the Low Carb Grocery, I've found Pita Gourmet High Protein Pitas at Loblaw's and Zehr's.

I agree Noma - these are my favourite breads of everything I have tried that is on our allowed list...I feel like it is a treat to have my half-pita with my lunch :laugh:

I experienced the same "splittling" problems occasionally, I figured it was because the pitas had been frozen before so they got a bit stickier...maybe it is just a normal pita thing though ???

I really like these too and the fact that my local Loblaws stocks these is a bonus

I just started eating these now on maintenance.  I agree they are excellent.

I love these.  I love them even more than "regular" pita.  The Joseph's are better since you can eat more of them on strict but for maintenance or those in Canada who can't get a regular supply of Joseph's, these are fantastic.

I LOVE these pitas. They are soooo soft. Even if I wasn't on Dr. B they are the type of product I would buy. I cant believe they've been at my regular grocery store all this time and I've never noticed them because I read every label and am constantly looking for the best products nutritionally. The portion is big compared to other breads we are allowed and they hold up to whatever I stuff in them. Yum-O as Rachel Ray would say.

Fantastic product! I use them for personal pizzas and wraps on strict. They are the kind of healthy product I would eat on a regular basis. I wish they were available in Vancouver instead of ordering them online.

very delicious!

love them too! I use them to make pizzas, and also you can bake them in the over until they are a bit crispy, then brake them into smaller pieces, and eat with salsa. (my replacement for tostitos).... very good, and pretty large portion.

I can't believe I'm allowed to eat this on strict... It seems like a LOT of bread! I open the pocket up so I have two pitas so I can spread my bread out during the day if I feel like it. Yummy!!
