Behind the Seeds: Get to Know Our Newest Cracker

April 13, 2021

Seeds are truly spectacular. They are tiny nutrient-packed nuggets that add major flavor and crunch to every bite.

That’s why we chose seeds as the muse for our newest cracker! Made simply with a blend of sunflower, pumpkin, and flax seeds, these crackers were created to boost your snacks and meals, helping fuel your body all day long. Let’s get to know our 3 star seeds a little bit better with help from Registered Dietician, Olivia Wagner (MS, RDN, LDN).

Sunflower Seeds

Nutrition Benefits
One serving, or ¼ cup, is rich in…

  • Vitamin E, a vitamin that serves as an antioxidant and helps reduce cell damage, supports the immune system and boosts skin health

  • Selenium, a mineral that aids in thyroid function and daily detoxification

  • Copper, a mineral that plays an important role with iron in blood formation as well as supports healthy bones, blood vessels, nerves and immune function

Flavor Profile
Sunflower Seeds are tender in texture and nutty in flavor. As a pretty neutral tasting seed, sunflower seeds allow other flavors to come through whether it be paired with a sweet or savory counterpart. This versatile seed had to make it into the cracker!

Pumpkin Seeds

Nutrition Benefits
One serving, or ¼ cup, is packed with…

  • Zinc, a nutrient important for hair, skin, nails and immune health

  • Alpha Linoleic Fatty Acids (ALA), plant-based omega-3 fats found to protect against heart disease and fight inflammation

  • Magnesium, which is needed for more than 600 chemical reactions in the body, including heart function, muscle function, and the stress response system

Flavor Profile
When consumed raw, pumpkin seeds taste grassy and buttery. When roasted, like in our crackers, pumpkin seeds deliver toasty nutty flavors. They also provide a great crunch factor when combined with other seeds and stand out with their bright green color!

Flax Seeds

Nutrition Benefits
One serving, or 2 tablespoons, contains plenty of…

  • Soluble fiber to support gut health and a healthy cholesterol balance

  • Antioxidants from compounds called lignans, which studies have shown are associated with reduced risk of osteoporosis, heart disease, and some cancers

  • ALA omega-3 fatty acids as the richest plant-based source of them, protecting against heart disease and fighting inflammation

Flavor Profile
Flax has a nutty, earthy, mildly sweet flavor. In their whole form they deliver a crunch, and in their ground form they can help to bind other seeds together!

This grouping of seeds is truly a powerful trio.  Give them a try for yourself and enjoy the health and flavor benefits of the NEW Organic Seed Crackers!
