A wholesome, authentic crispbread cracker is one of the foods most often missed among people who are living gluten-free. Now Wasa, the world’s leader in crispbread production, is stepping in with two new varieties: Gluten Free Original and Gluten Free Sesame & Sea Salt.
The crispbreads are made with potato and amaranth, an ancient grain that is naturally gluten-free, along with real sourdough for a traditional bread flavor. The crispbread is Non-GMO Project Verified, contains no lactose ingredients, is vegetarian, and is baked without palm oil.
“We felt it was important to develop a crispbread line for the increasing number of people who are adopting gluten-free lifestyles, while still ensuring that it delivers the taste and texture crispbread cracker lovers expect from Wasa,” says Melissa Tendick, marketing vice president—Americas.
The gluten-free crispbreads come in convenient snack packs and are available nationwide for a suggested retail price of $3.99.
