Dietitian's Top (Gluten Free) Pick: Mary's Gone Crackers





For our final blog post in Celiac Awareness Month we chose Mary's Gone Crackers Original Wheat Free, Gluten Free Cracker.

This cracker has so many things to brag about:
- certified Gluten Free
- USDA organic
- Non GMO
- Vegan (so that means dairy free, egg free)
- Kosher
- Contains 450mg of omega 3 fatty acids (ALA from the flaxseeds) per 1 oz serving
- Whole Grain
- Manufactured in a dedicated gluten, free, dairy free, nut free facility

Let me say that this cracker is so good and has the perfect crunchability. Many of my friends who do not have to eat gluten free purposely choose these crackers because they enjoy how hearty and crunchy these crackers are made. They are the perfect pair for any kind of heavy dip (hummus, bean dips, french onion, etc).

Not only does this cracker have great attributes, the nutrition is stellar too. It receives one of the highest NuVal scores on the cracker aisle (remember NuVal is one simple number 1-100, on the price tag, that tells you in a single glance the nutrition of the product: higher scores mean better nutrition). It's high NuVal score makes it a Dietitian's Top Pick.
