Are Wraps Healthier Than Sandwiches?

There is no harm in eating a wrap when you are in a hurry and stop at a fast-food restaurant. There is also no harm in accepting a sandwich made with commercial bread when you visit someone’s home. When you want to be healthy, and know you are serving the very best to your loved ones, avoid making these approaches a habit.

Similar to a sandwich or burrito, a wrap uses a pliable flatbread or tortilla to roll ingredients into a portable, handheld meal. The term wrap can be used to describe the outer shell and the finished product. The outer wrap is typically a flour tortilla, which comes in a few varieties.

You know that thing you do at the deli where you decide you’re gonna get a healthy lunch and, in an earnest attempt to do the right thing, ask your sandwich artist to put it on a wrap instead of bread? You can stop doing that now. Experts say that wraps are oftentimes more processed and higher in calories than two slices of fresh-baked bread.

Bundled up in their cling wrap coverings, they seem like healthier, lighter options than a sandwich – but are they? Not always, says Melanie McGrice, accredited practising dietitian and author of the The Live Well Plan.
