Diabetics, vegetarians and other health conscious consumers can now enjoy a healthy organic snack: Casabe Rainforest Bread Crackers, the NEW flavor of a traditional South American staple, produced by a South Florida company in South America, and now available in South Florida.

Reviving the 2000 year old plus recipe for the American conossieur consumer was the brainchild of Fortitude Brands managing partner Franco Stanzione, Jr. After slipping out of the olive oil business, Franco did some research of his own on the booming specialty premium cracker market---growing at a an annual rate of 4.9%.

So, he went back to his Venezuelan roots, and revived an age-old recipe for bread crackers: a tasty, versatile treat that is embraced by vegetarians and gourmets alike. The baking of these tasty crackers began in  the Amazon region, with  the Yano Mami and Arawacs tribes.   The Yanomami are still there, the Arawacs are now extinct.

The crackers are made from a raw, pure yucca bulb which is pulverized, squeezed and pummeled into pulp.  Then, each cracker is hand-cut and baked in traditional wood-burning ovens.

Casabe Rainforest Bread Crackers are made from 100% natural ingredients. No salt, sugar or preservatives are added, and have a shelf life of more than a year. They're fat free---only 25 calories per serving.  The high Fiber-three content carries toxins out of the body and the high dietary fiber content adds a cutting edge to the product, capable of satisfying the most rigorous health-oriented consumer.  

Since Casabe Rainforest Bread Crackers are wheat and gluton free, diabetics and siliacs can freely enjoy them. They're good for dieters because they're low in carbohydrates and non-fattening.

Packaged in 100% recyclable material, Casabe Rainforest Bread Crackers are considered an eco product, and bear the vegan and organic certifications. The Kosher certification is being applied for. A portion of its sales go to the  Save the Rainforest Foundation in Venezuela.

Consumers can find Casabe Rainforest Bread Crackers in all Publix, Wild Oats and Whole Foods stores, as well as various gourmet stores around Florida and 18 other markets around the country.   They come in three delectable flavors: Wild Onion, Garlic and Original Rainforest.
