Buying Tips

Look for whole-grain, low-sodium, and low-fat varieties.


Crackers are made from a variety of flours, including white and whole-grain wheat, rye, rice, and others. They’re available in low-fat, fat-free, and low-sodium assortments, and may also contain other flavorings, such as cheese, spices, and vegetables. Crackers come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Wheat-free crackers suitable for people with wheat allergies are also available.
