Product Name: Fantastic Rice Crackers
Nutritionals: 425kJ (101cal), 21.2g total carbs, 1/7g protein per 25g serve (1 row)
Pros: I struggle to find something positive to say about rice crackers – they are high GI, heavily refined, contain flavour enhancers and almost as much carbs as 2 slices of bread. I guess they are gluten free.
Cons: See above – often considered ‘healthy’, these are an energy dense, nutrient poor choice of snack that can easily be overconsumed.
Rating: 1 star. I never recommend rice crackers. Rice cakes, corn cakes or wafer thins a million times better
Tips: If you buy a packet, you will eat then entire pack and consume 80+g of total carbohydrates. There are much better options out there. If you must have rice crackers, at least choose the wholegrain varieties.
