When I scour the supermarket shelves, I often come across fantastic products that use all organic ingredients but are not certified organic. Many times, I will then follow-up with those companies to see if and when certification is coming.
This is exactly what happened with Flackers by Doctor in the Kitchen. I first discovered their organic flax crackers several months ago, contacted the company and kind of forgot about them.
Then, out of nowhere, Flackers was back on the shelf at my local organic market and is now certified organic by MCIA.
AN INTERESTING PRODUCT
There are two main reasons why Flackers stands out to me.
1) Very unique flavor I am a huge rosemary fan and have never seen organic rosemary in flax crackers before. Aside from rosemary, Flackers also has organic sage.
The flavor profile is fantastic and incredibly distinct.
2) Made by a Doctor I like the fact that Flackers is produced by a doctor. Not that doctors are the only ones who can design and formulate healthy products but it is great to see when they do and what they come up with.
Alison Levitt, M.D., a holistic medical doctor who is board certified in Family Medicine and specializes in integrative medicine, is one of the founders of the company. In her medical practice she blends the unique modalities of nutrition, herbs, and spirituality and in her Flackers’ products she incorporates organic herbs and spices.
Even though there are not a ton of organic flax crackers on the market, Flackers stood out to me for its great taste and compelling ingredients.
Flax crackers are growing tremendously in popularity because they are raw, a healthy alternative to traditional crackers, and a great source of Omega 3s.
The ingredients of Flackers include: organic flax seeds, organic apple cider vinegar, vegetable protein from non-GMO soybeans and purified water, organic rosemary, organic sage. Also, Flackers is gluten-free.
