WOLCOTT, Ind. (WLFI) - EggLife will now be making grain and dairy-free tortillas in White County.

Founder Peggy Johns said she wanted to create an alternative healthy option for tortillas.

"It has these health benefits, but it tastes good, and that was my goal when I started to make it. Whatever I was going to make it had to taste good," said Johns.

The new 60,000 square foot facility has created more than 50 jobs in the area.

"Because of the attention that this has gathered, everyone is calling requesting 'when can I buy it? Where can I find it?' We're going to increase our production and we're going to put in five more lines," said Johns.

The company will also be sourcing many of its eggs in Indiana. Rose Acre Farms has several locations, including in Rensselaer. It will be providing cage-free eggs for the company.

"We've been in egg production for 60-plus years," said Rose Acre Farms CEO Marcus Rust. "This is a new venture into food production, and we feel it's a much-needed product. It will be a very good market for our eggs."  

The tortillas contain only 30 calories per wrap, which is 50 calories less than a tortilla made with flour.

"It’s clean simple ingredients," added Johns. "It's also gluten-free, it's dairy-free, it's all-natural, no grain, no nuts."

EggLife prides themselves with being Keto, and Paleo-friendly. The wraps come in flavors of original, Italian, southwest, and rye style. Johns said she hopes to create a larger variety.

"It will give people so many choices of so many different meals and it's not just going to be a wrap," said Johns. "EggLife is not just a wrap, there's so much more to come."

The product will be available in select stores starting later this month at Chicagoland Marino starting at $4.99. The closest to Lafayette where you may be able to get it is Remington at IGA.  Which is located on 115 E Division St, Remington, IN 47977.
