- Wrap each piece individually in aluminum foil and place in the oven for 3 to 4 minutes.
- Enjoy plain, spread with butter or sauces, dunked in dips, or alongside the main course!
Q: What’s the best way to store California Lavash?You can store our flatbread in the pantry or on the counter. Fridge not recommended. We suggest freezing our flatbreads to extend their shelf life without affecting the taste or texture. Because we use no artificial preservatives or additives, it’s best to use or freeze by the date on the package.
Q: So freezing is okay?Yes! We find that our flatbread tastes best if you use it within 6 months of freezing and within 5 days once you’ve thawed it out.
Q: Can I store California Lavash in the fridge?You can but we don't recommend it. Fridge temperatures dry out the bread 2-3 times faster than freezer or room temperature.
Q: What type of flour does California Lavash use?We use untreated flour, which means it’s unbleached, unenriched, unbromated, and non-GMO.
Q: I thought lavash was a cracker?Lavash flatbread makes an excellent cracker when it’s baked. Here’s one of our favorite cracker recipes.
Q: What is the best way to make a wrap?Glad you asked! We recommend placing all the fillings on the half closest to you, placing a "sealer" spread (hummus, cream cheese, mayo, etc.) on the last half farthest from you, and then rolling it up tightly. We’ve got a ton of great recipes here . Have fun exploring!
Q: What else can I do with lavash other than make a wrap?The possibilities are pretty much endless: Panini, pizza, pinwheel trays, crackers, cups. For more ideas, see our recipe section
Q: What’s the difference between lavash and flour tortillas?We love tortillas, but we are partial to our lavash because it’s so versatile and healthy! Lavash is a fully baked flatbread that is usually lower in sodium, less doughy and chewy, and generally contains less oil. Lavash's rectangular shape makes it easier to fit in lots of good stuff inside when you’re making wraps.
Q: I made an awesome recipe that I would like to share. Who can I send it to?Yum! Just send the recipe (and a photo if you have it) to: [email protected] We’d also love for you to share your masterpiece on any of our social media sites!
Q: How can I soften brittle lavash?Lavash can dry out over time as it loses moisture. One simple fix is to sprinkle water (either with a spray bottle or by wetting your fingers and shaking over the bread). We also recommend storing lavash in the freezer to help lock in the moisture.
Q: Do you have gluten-free lavash?Not yet, but keep checking back.
Q: Does the sea salt you use contain iodine?Here at California Lavash, we use all natural ingredients. The sea salt we use does not have any iodine added to it whatsoever, though it does naturally contain traces. This is below the amount of iodine required to be nutritionally significant and is far less than your daily requirement.
Q: Do you make Kosher products?All of the products in our retail line are certified Kosher by the OU.
Q: What does Certified Vegan mean?It means that we do not use any dairy or meat in our products, and we have gone through a certification process that affims that we do not use any animal products or test on animals.

Our entire facility is vegan, and all of our products are vegan.
Q: What are GMOs?GMO is short for Genetically Modified Organism. GMOs are the source of genetically modified foods, which means some ingredient in a food has been genetically altered (to increase resistance to pests, for instance).

This is an independent organization that verifies whether a company’s products are free of GMOs. We’re proud that at California Lavash, ALL of the products in our retail line are Non-GMO Project Verified.
