Canadian food manufacturer Dare Foods has launched what it claims is Canada’s first “supergrain” cracker chip.
Breton Popped cracker chips contain a blend of so-called supergrains, including quinoa, amaranth and millet. The product is also trans-fat and cholesterol-free, low in saturated fat and contains no artificial colours or flavours.
“Canadians continue to seek healthy snacks. We wanted to create a product that would appeal to them and one that they would feel good about eating,” Kelly McInenly, senior director for bakery marketing at Dare Foods, said.
The range is available in three variants: barbecue, cheddar and sea salt. All are available in 100g packs at major grocery and mass merchandise stores across Canada with a suggested retail price of US$2.99.
