Sass away. I, for one, am not offended by a difference of opinion, especially a good-natured difference, over crackers. You'll have to try harder.

J Woolman, you are so kind to spell out the nutrition data and pass along the homemade tips. It sounds like fun and something I'll try in addition to the cheese variations.

San-J Black Sesame tamari rice crackers: 5 crackers (29 g), 140 calories, 6 g fat, total carb 17 g, fiber 2 g, sugars 0 g, protein 4 g, sodium 170 mg. They have brown ones with regular sesame seeds but I don't have a package handy.

Sesmark brown rice thins (half the size or less maybe of the San-J): 17 crackers (30 g), 120 calories, fat 1.5 g, total carb 25 g, fiber 1 g, sugars 0 g, protein 2 g, sodium 70 mg.

Beanfield "Sea Salt" flavor bean and rice chips: 1 oz (28 g), 140 calories, fat 5 g, total carb 18 g, fiber 4 g (insoluble 3 g), sugars 0 g, protein 4 g, sodium 95 mg.

Crunchmaster Multigrain Sea Salt flavor, which has brown rice, corn, potato starch, safflower oil, oat fiber, cane syrup, sesame seeds, flax seeds, millet, sea salt, quinoa seeds : 16 crackers (they're small), 130 calories, fat 3 g, total carb 23 g, fiber 3 g, sugars 2 g, protein 2 g, sodium 135 g.

Mary's Gone Crackers Sticks & Twigs: 15 pieces (30 g), 150 calories, fat 5 g, total carb 21 g, fiber 4 g, sugars 0 g, protein 4 g, sodium 300 mg. These are pretzels, the sodium content of the crackers with the same basic recipe might be different.

If you're salt sensitive, it's worth learning how to make your own crackers. Just mix anything flour-like with enough water so you can handle the dough and it's not sticky. Then flatten golf ball sized balls of dough between your hands (I've also used a tortilla iron for this) and heat in a pan or in the oven, turning after a few minutes. Or you can bake in an oven, checking every few minutes until they suit you. I always made them without oil or salt since I was going to be topping with peanut butter or nut/seed butters. But you can add some oil to taste. Also can add salt to taste, but not essential. I've used barley flour or oat flour or teff flour (tried amaranth flour but not a good idea by itself, although mixed with wheat it should be good; I used to substitute one cup amaranth for 1 cup whole wheat in bread recipes and the result was fantastic). Any blend of flours or individual flours can be used. I didn't bother with rice, corn, or wheat flours because such crackers were readily available even way back then in the olden days pre-computer. Wheat, spelt, and kamut flours, like barley flour, would be easy to roll out and just cut out like cookies or just bake. Much harder to roll non-gluten flours so I usually didn't try. I just whizzed rolled oats in a blender to make oat flour. A high power mixer could do likewise with other grains or seeds. I used to wrap and put in the freezer if I made a larger batch. They thaw quickly.

You also can use ground seeds or nuts to make crackers all by themselves. I've seen recipes, they're not hard to make. I remember one for pumpkin seed crackers in an old allergy cookbook. I never tried it but thought even I could make them (I'm seriously kitchen-challenged).

Again, I'll say "So many crackers, so little time."

Tamari-flavored crackers sound as though they'd have a particularly high sodium content. Is that accurate?

As someone mentioned, Crunchmaster crackers are very tasty.

Also look at San-J Tamari brown rice sesame crackers- simple but excellent. I buy them by the case to always have available. Sesmark has a simpler brown rice cracker that is good for eating with hummus or with toppings but I eat the San-J crackers all by themselves.

Nairn has very nice oat crackers - just oats, oil, salt, and leavening (baking something, not yeast). I like those alone (instead of oatmeal) or with toppings. I generally eat the coarse but they have a fine version also.

Mary's Gone Crackers has pretzel like things called Sticks and Twigs that are awesome although salty. Ingredients: Brown rice, quinoa, flax seeds, amaranth, millet, salt, chia seeds, tamari (wheat free). They have a cracker with the same recipe but I haven't tried it yet

You might check into Beanfield's chips. They're triangular. Made with beans and rice... About 140 calories worth (1 oz) has 4 grams protein and 4 grams fiber. Different flavors but simple ingredients and really tasty. They have a plain "sea salt" one but here are the ingredients for the Salt&Pepper one: Black Beans, Navy Beans, Long Grain Rice, High Oleic Safflower or Sunflower Oil. Flavoring: Sea Salt, Black Pepper, Evaporated Cane Juice, Dehydrated Onion and Garlic, Spice Extractive

Lundberg has a line of rice chips that include corn. They're very tasty but I don't know if they meet your criteria.

I like to use Ortega corn taco shells broken in half- they're not salty like most corn chips but are tasty. Excellent with either avocado or peanut butter/shredded carrot/chopped onion mix or with baked beans.

One word of warning: be careful of quantity. Along with higher quality foods (nuts and seeds, etc) comes higher calorie counts. But they aren't wasted calories, I consider them as important parts of my meals.

I'm not suggesting Wasa, just saying that when one is doing low (er ) carb, you can fit crackers in on even the lowest carb plan, so at a higher level, it should be easy. Just pick any whole wheat cracker.

Wasa crackers are even allowed by Dr. Bernstein, who suggest a very low carb diet ( 30 grams a day ). If you are trying to clean up your carbs, you should be able to do so quite easily since it sounds like you are eating a much higher carb level than that. So crackers should fit in quite easily. So many times we focus on the quantity of our foods, when we should probably pay as much, if not more attention to quality.

The Parmesan crisps and the cheddar "brittle" both sound so good. I'm a klutz with a rolling pin, but I'd be willing to try. If I can't get the mix rolled out reasonably well, I'd try smashing it out and flattening it with my hands -- it's a recipe intended to look less pretty than "interesting," anyway.

One of the Fairway stores is close by. I've heard that Magic Pops are good and available under other names, too. They seem to be easy enough to find.

Have you made Parmesan crisps?

Freshly grate parm,



Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Pour a heaping tablespoon of Parmesan onto a silicone or parchment lined baking sheet and lightly pat down. A silicone baking sheet is highly recommended. Repeat with the remaining cheese, spacing the spoonfuls about a 1/2 inch apart.

Bake for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden and crisp. Cool.

The Kavli name is familiar. I'm pretty sure I've had it in the past, but don't recall the taste.

So many crackers, so little time. Thank you, everyone. I feel more confident about the team challenge with these reminders and lessons. It will be so nice to participate without feeling I'm making drastic changes. A good crrrrunch can hit the spot.

Yours sound good, too, Carrie. The rice-meal-as-first-ingredient crackers I saw, however, didn't specify brown rice. That and the very pale color of the crackers (I promise that I didn't open a package and then walk away; they have a transparent cellophane wrapper) make me sure that white rice is what they're made from.

We don't have Costco here, but I think I'd find Crunchmaster by another name in local health-food stores.

I think the little multi-seed crackers you're talking about are Crunchmaster. If so, the first ingredient is brown rice flour. (If you go to the link, you can click on nutritional info.)The ones I've eaten are full of sesame seeds, chia seeds, and all kinds of other delicious, crunchy toasty things. I love these. They're 10 calories per cracker, and I have about seven of them at a time along with my salads. Wonderful.

One time we bought kind of a multi-pack at Costco that included a couple packages of a plain Parmesan type. It was more white in color and didn't have all the seeds. I don't recommend those; they were pretty boring. But the ones with all the seeds are great. They have very little fat and are high in fiber.

Thank you, Becky, Our SP Registered Dietitian. I admire RD's for their/your vast knowledge.

I never knew that about Triscu, having bought perhaps one box about 200 years ago, and will revisit them. It's nice to know that I have more options than I'd thought.

Anarie, you arrived while I was still typing the last.

I didn't know that Triscuit is non-wheat, but I try to keep sodium reasonable. I know of Kashi crackers, but haven't seen them. You make them seem promising, so I'll take a closer look.

Mrs. Bennett, the cracker you're describing sounds similar to the one I described in the initial post. Beside the rice flour, it contained ground sesame and some other things I like. I shied away because I'm hoping for more nutritional value than white rice provides. I'm probably being over zealous, as a few rice crackers can't open the door to beri-beri or rickets or any of the other maladies we learned about in school.

Eel Pie, you are inventive. In truth, it sounds as though the Wasa may be a little soggy for my tastes, but it's worth a try. Since we both are wild for Wasa, I'll trust your suggestion.

This is what I probably like best about Spark. People who don't know each other manage to find each other and are happy to spend a little time knocking around ideas on almost any topic. People are wonderful, better than sesame.

Plain old Triscuits are whole grain, no white flour, if that's the only criterion. They're pretty high in fat and sodium so they're not what anyone would consider super healthy, but they have minimal empty carbs.

Something a little more hearty and a little more healthy, but still tasty IMO, are the Kashi 7-grain crackers. They come in various flavors, but they're all whole grain and lower in sodium than Triscuit.

I don't know what the ingredients are as I'm in AU....but when i was in Kansas earlier in the year, we were buying boxes of a gluten-free wholegrain rice cracker at Sam's Club. Really tasty little things. Costco didn't carry that same brand, just Sam's. Never saw them in a regular store either.

lol...I'm totally addicted to them :)

Someone here gave me a great tip on the Wasa: if you want to use them as bread (I did it last week with the rye and tuna salad), make a sandwich (I got two mini-sandwiches out of it), and wrap each in saran wrap, a put in the fridge for and hour.

The moisture from the mayo/tuna absorbed into the Wasa, so the outside was still kinda crispy, but further in it was moist, so I ended up with a half crispy half soft wasa tuna extravaganza emoticon It was fantastic!!

The best exercise in the world is to bend down and help someone up.

Eel Pie (two words?), you are wonderful. I'd bought Wasa and Ryvita for many years, but they've slipped my mind for having slipped from my grocery list a while back for no particular reason.

I think the "whole grain rye" listed on the Wasa ingredients should be fine, assuming it truly is whole grain. I'll get back to both product now. Gluten isn't the issue. We're just cutting down on empty carb calories for the team challenge. I've been considering eating gluten-free for a while to see if I feel different/better as many people say they do, but I'm not there yet.

Thank you so much for the reminder of two product lines I like. People have sneered, saying they taste like sawdust, but I say that they are cuckoo.

I just bought these, but not at amazon, it's a good link though as it has pictures of the nutrition label, nutrition, etc:

www.amazon.com/Ryvita-Whole-Crispbread-Pum
pkin-7-Ounce/dp/B000FDBRI6


Our All Natural Ingredients: Whole Grain Rye Flour, Pumpkin Seeds (15%), Whole Grain Oats (11%), Salt.

Is rye ok with you? Does it have to be wheat free? I also love Wasa crispbreads.

A challenge in one of my teams has us aiming to minimize if not eliminate empty/white/simple carbs from our gullets. I'd like to find a suitable cracker that tastes good. The "tastes good" part is subjective, of course, so any recommendations will be welcomed.

I read several labels today at Trader Joe's, but the most promising, a wheat-free affair, listed rice meal as the first ingredient -- uh-oh, white rice. My hope is that someone will stop by here and save me from combing through more stores and reading more labels in vain.

Thanks for your help. I hope.
