Which are the healthiest crackers?

Most health conscious people these days are watching their intake of carbohydrates and choosing high protein snacks. In my practice I am often asked about what versions of high carbohydrate products are “good for you” and in general I give the same answer whether we’re talking about breakfast cereal, pasta, bread or crackers:

1.Pay attention to serving size 2.Look for the version with the highest grams of fiber per serving 3.If the product has fat, avoid trans-fats 4.Choose the version with the highest amount of protein per serving 5.Choose the product with the least amount of sugar per serving
While I am an enthusiastic advocate of diets of fruits, vegetables, high fiber, high protein, and healthy fats…sometimes you just need a snack with some crunch! So for these times, here are the brands of crackers I recommend. Any of these would pair well with hummus, guacamole, salsa or another spread or dip:
WasaMultigrain: 2 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber per slice without any sugar
