Crackers are usually thought of as crispy, baked things made out of flour (usually nutritionally-devoid refined white flour). Foods Alive's Organic Onion Garlic Flax Crackers are a whole different kind of snack, but they are way more nutritious, and also quite yummy!
If asked to describe these crackers, I would say they’re like flat, crispy cakes of unprocessed flax seeds that have been compressed together. These are not the high glycemic rice, corn or potato flour/starch junk food crackers you’re used to – they’re 90% raw, USDA organic, and made almost entirely from a highly nutritious, unprocessed superfood that has shown some evidence of reducing heart disease, cancer, etc. etc.: flaxseed!
All that might sound too nutritious to taste good, but these crackers are actually quite palatable. This onion and garlic variety is absolutely bursting with flavor. There's no weird consistency or anything like that going on either, as one might expect from eating, well, raw seeds (no, you don't have to be a bird to enjoy these)! Some gluten-free crackers that too closely try to emulate saltines or other 'conventional' crackers end up with a weird grainy texture that some find off-putting. There's nothing like that going on here: just seeds, and tasty stuff holding them together.
