Crackers are a popular snack food made from flour, water and other ingredients such as yeast, sugar, fat and salt. They come in various shapes and sizes with different flavors including whole grain varieties. Crackers have many nutritional benefits depending on the type of cracker. Whole wheat or multigrain crackers tend to be higher in fiber than regular white flour crackers which can help promote better digestion while providing more energy throughout the day. Additionally they contain B vitamins which may aid in metabolism as well as minerals like iron for healthy red blood cells production. On the downside however, some brands add extra fat or sugar to make them tastier but this also increases their calorie count so it’s best to check labels before purchasing if you want something low-calorie . Furthermore most store bought versions lack freshness due to preservatives added during manufacturing process that affect taste quality negatively. All things considered ,crackers are an easy convenient snack full of beneficial nutrients when eaten moderately and paired with healthy toppings such fruits cheese or hummus.
