These San-J Brown Rice Sesame Crackers are really full-bodied and crunchy.  They are soy sauce (gluten free soy sauce, that is) flavored and are of a thicker texture so they are perfect for dipping or even with veggies.  They are salty, true to their Tamari title, and are certainly satisfying when you want a hearty, bold cracker.  I enjoyed these with a sandwich instead of chips, with an Asian inspired veggie dish for dinner and alongside a salad.  The Rich Flavor made it the perfect compliment with every one of those meals. 

Nutritionally, for as large as these crackers are, 5 are only 140 calories, with 6g of fat.  They are pretty substantial, so I really couldn’t eat more than 3 at a time anyway.  Ingredient-wise, they are nice and simple, containing only sesame, brown rice flour, gluten free tamari and potato starch.  The short list of ingredients indicates that there isn’t anything hidden or seriously unhealthy in these crackers.  I like to think that the simpler the ingredients, the more wholesome the food is. This is definitely a snack you won’t feel guilty about putting it in your system.

I really like these crackers because they are flavorful and scrumptious enough to make me feel like I am not eating a gluten free food.  They are rice crackers, but have a powerful flavor and a wonderful texture which makes it a satisfying snack food.
