My Favorite Crackers

Cream Cheese and Chives

 

 

These crackers are something I almost always reach for when I need a quick snack or am just hungry and need something to hold myself over till my next meal. I picked this food because since I eat these very regularly and find them to be very delicious I really wanted to know what was in them. When I looked up this snack to understand what I was really eating this is what I found…

 

 

Here are a few of the ingredients found in the cracker

    1. Enriched Flour (Wheat Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid)
    2. Vegetable Oil (contains one or more of the following: Palm Oil, Soybean Oil, Canola Oil)
    3. Sugar
    4. Leavening (Sodium Bicarbonate, Ammonium Bicarbonate, Monocalcium Phosphate)
    5. Sodium Caseinate
    6. Cream Cheese (Pasteurized Milk and Cream, Cheese Cultures, Salt, Stabilizers [Xanthan, Carob Bean, Guar Gum])
    7. Nonfat Dry Milk
    8. Soy Lecithin
    9. Peanut Oil

After looking at this food label I was surprised at was how much sodium was actually in this snack but the thing that I did not understand was why there was no cholesterol in the crackers. I know having too much cholesterol in foods is not good for your health, but I guess I just figured this food would have a component of cholesterol in them which I was confused not to find when I researched the crackers.
