If you’ve shopped at the deli and picked up one of the Asian Chicken Wraps you might have wondered how healthy, or rather not healthy, eating that sandwich was for you. Well, wonder no more because I’ve got all of the nutritional information for you. The good news is that it might not be quite as horrible calorie-wise as you thought (but it’s definitely not low), and it does have some redeeming nutritional value in the way of protein, vitamin A, and iron. Of course, if you look at the sodium numbers you might not get past that, from the shock that one serving of this has more than 50% of your RDA for sodium!
I also want to point out that when you buy these at Costco what is in the container is 4 servings, not just two like you might assume. You only get one of the wrap sections in a serving. Unfortunately, the nutritional information also includes the dressing and I imagine that is where a lot of the fat and sodium, as well as a fair amount of calories, are located because the wrap itself doesn’t have anything in it that I think would account for that (at least not that I can remember) since it is mostly chicken, lettuce, cabbage and shredded carrots.

I have added the nutritional information for the Chinese Chicken Wrap to my Costco Calories spreadsheet on Google. Anyone with or without a Google login can view this spreadsheet to find nutritional information for the 16″ pizzas, cakes, and bagels made by Costco. This wrap is on the tab for ‘Misc Items’.
