I have tried many gluten-free crackers on the market, but have some how missed these crackers made by Ener-G. I think I may have avoided them in the past because there have been a few things made by Ener-G that I didn’t care for. I received these crackers as part of another sample package and was impressed with the taste & texture, so I wanted to share my thoughts with you all.
Ener-G was one of the first companies that I learned about when I began the gluten-free diet. Their bread was all that I ate for the first few months, as there weren’t the wide variety of choices that there are today. More about the crackers:
Also known as Ener-G Wheat-Free Crackers, a top selling gluten-free, low protein cracker made with corn and soy flour. The Wheat-Free Gourmet Cracker is our gluten-free version of the classic saltine cracker. They are thin, crisp, buttery and the most versatile gluten-free cracker you can find.
Ingredients: Corn Starch, Palm Oil, Soy Flour, Sugar, Salt, Baking Powder (ammonium bicarbonate, sodium carbonate, sodium acid pyrophosphate), Yeast, Soy Lecithin, (emulsifier).
I don’t know what I expected from these crackers, but I went into the sampling with an open mind. I didn’t want any thoughts of what I thought they would taste like getting in the way of sampling them. After my first bite it dawned on me that these reminded me very much of saltines! They were bigger and not quite as flaky as I remember saltines being, but had a distinct resemblance nonetheless. I think these crackers would make a great base for appetizers. I am thinking crab dip, mini-tuna melts, pizza flat breads or Nutella with sliced banana. In addition to being gluten-free, these crackers are also egg, milk, and lactose-free. They do contain soy, corn & yeast for those sensitive to those ingredients.
Have you tried these gluten-free crackers? What did you think? What is your favorite gluten-free cracker?
