    Are you talking about the tortillas made out of spinach? Check out the links to compare the spinach tortillas and flour tortillas on nutrition information. The nutrition information is similar, however there isn’t enough spinach in the spinach tortilla to gain the benefits of eating spinach. The main ingredient is still white flour.

    Although they contain spinach, green tortillas are not significantly healthier than plain flour tortillas. If you’re looking for a healthy tortilla, choose one made with whole grains or whole wheat. They may not be as tasty, but they don’t contain (or don’t contain as much of) the enriched wheat flour. Enriched flour is enriched with extra nutrients, but not enough to replace those that are lost in processing. Thus, your body absorbs the calories but still craves more nutrients. When you’re eating enriched flour, you’re consuming more calories but not using all of the energy. To get more energy from your food, choose whole grains.

    They’re made of spinach, but they’re not a whole lot healthier.  There are also red ones made out of tomatoes or red peppers.  They’re more festive than anything else.  In general, tortillas are pretty good for you, so don’t shy away from getting them!
