It’s the time of year for soups and entertaining. A great staple to have on hand or in the pantry is a few choices of low sodium crackers. Whether you are putting together a low sodium platter of snacks for entertaining guests or just as a side for a bowl of soup or chili, good low sodium crackers come in really handy. If you are proficient at breadmaking, you can make your own crackers from scratch. If you are like me, and already things are busy this season, I want a box of crackers I can grab off of the shelf.
If you like Nabisco products, you will be thrilled with their new Hint of Salt versions of their Ritz, Wheat Thins, and Triscuits Crackers. All three have less than 70 mg per serving (varies by cracker). All three versions taste very similar to their “original” versions, but are decisively lower in sodium. All three choices are carried by most mass market grocers like WalMart and Target as well as being available on Amazon.
If you like a different style or flavor of cracker, please make sure to read the labels. Here is a quick list of the low sodium cracker options I was able to find at my local grocers:
- Triscuit Hint of Salt – 50 mg per 6 crackers
- Wheat Thins Hint of Salt – 55 mg per 16 crackers
- Ritz Hint of Salt – 50 mg per 6 crackers
- Premium Saltines Unsalted Tops – 75 mg per 5 crackers
- Keebler Townhouse Reduced Sodium – 80 mg per 5 crackers
