I have not received any promotional items to review and no one from any of the companies whose products I review have asked me to do so. I have purchased the product and am giving my honest opinion about it. Should any company send me a product to try, I will state it up front and will still give my honest opinion.
I am always on the lookout for a good cracker that is low carb so when I saw this one on Amazon from Doctor in the Kitchen, I decided to try them. They are a savory cracker with garlic, onion, red pepper and basil seasonings added. The main ingredient is flax seeds. They are sprouted, which, according to the box, makes them easier to chew,digest and absorb. If you eat low carb, you are probably aware that flax seed is very low in carbohydrates and high in fiber, being one of those foods that can actually give you a negative number on net carbs. They are also high in Omega 3 fatty acid, which is good for your heart.
If you like the taste of flax, you will probably find these to be very tasty and they are a good cracker for a snack or putting cheese or a little of the cranberry salsa on for a quick treat. They are surprisingly satisfying as well. I enjoy them although I really favor my own crackers made with flax meal and Carbquick. The seeds tend to stick in my teeth, so I prefer the ground flax.
Developed by Dr. Alison Levitt for herself and her patients, she decided to take them to the consumers, who can now benefit from these nutritional and tasty crackers. In addition to the flax, they also contain apple cider vinegar, vegetable protein from non-GMO soy beans and the aforementioned spices. One serving is a generous 6 crackers that amounts to 100 calories, 7 grams of fat, 6 carbohydrates with 7 grams of fiber, giving you a -1 net carb, and 5 grams of protein. On many levels, these are a win-win.
The only drawback is in the pricing. There are 30 crackers in a box, 5 servings, for $5.69 on Amazon as an add-on item, which makes them about $1.12 a serving. It doesn’t sound too bad unless you eat them daily.
In addition to these savory crackers, there are also Flax seed Rosemary, Flax seed Tomato Basil, Flaxseed Dill, and Flax seed Cinnamon and Currants. Unfortunately, this last one has a net carb count of 6 g per 6 cracker-servings, thanks to the currants. I haven’t tried any of the others, but it appears they are all a little higher on the carbohydrates than this one.
I give these 4 cooking spoons out of 5 for flavor and good taste.
