I have been on the search for a store bought whole wheat tortilla to have with my eggs in the morning or bean burritos for dinner but everything I have seen has so many ingredients. I searched amazon and came up with two brands that seem promising but I could use opinions from those that have mastered this lifestyle.

Option 1 Ingredients: Water, Oat Fiber, Whole Wheat Flour, Soy Flour, Vital Wheat Gluten, Expeller Pressed Canola Oil, Contains 2% or less of the following: Baking Powder (sodium acid pyrophosphate, sodium bicarbonate, corn starch, monocalcium phosphate), Sea Salt, Guar Gum, Citric Acid, Yeast, Xanthan Gum, Sorbic Acid, Calcium Propionate (to maintain freshness).
**This is the only one I have found that contains no added sugar but it has all those preservatives**

Option 2 Ingredients:100% Stone ground whole wheat, whole grain flour, sea salt, cane sugar and OLIVE oil.
**This has only has 5 ingredients, all of them being whole foods, but it has added sugar!**

Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I would go with either Option 2, or just use corn tortillas instead of flour b/c they pretty much always have only 1 or 2 ingredients and no added sugar. For me, part of clean eating is eating less flour and more whole grain.

I'd go with corn tortillas. Sometimes you can find them with just corn, water, salt & lime. Whole Foods has them and I think Trader Joe's does as well.

This. I mostly only eat corn tortillas.

I started just making my own tortillas because of this same problem :) They actually aren't that hard to make. You can find a bazillion different recipes online
