Mary’s Gone Crackers, the leading gluten-free, non-GMO, organic and plant-based snack brand, is spreading awareness of the powerful chia seed – a key ingredient in their Real Thin line for…
National Chia Seed Day on March 23rd, 2021
Mary’s Gone Crackers will champion the chia seed and celebrate their promise to use only wholesome ingredients with real benefit since their inception 18 years ago.
“Taste and nutrition come first in creating every line of our crackers.
We aim to provide nutrient-rich snacks that taste delicious, and this starts with our ingredients,”
said Carla King, Sr. Marketing Manager with Mary’s Gone Crackers.
“Chia seeds are one of the many hearty and wholesome ingredients that we are proud to bake with. They offer a slew of benefits to overall health, and are integral in creating the crunchy, toasty texture our Real Thins have become known for.”
Recognized for their wide-reaching benefits, chia seeds are rich in fiber and protein – providing up to 11 grams of fiber and four grams of protein per serving – to keep you full longer and support optimum digestive health. Despite their tiny size, they can also provide more omega-3s than salmon and more antioxidants than certain berries, properties known to enhance immunity. Every seed also contains zinc, magnesium, calcium and many other vitamins and nutrients.
Mary’s Gone Crackers bakes chia seeds into every Real Thin cracker to provide stamina, strength and fuel active, health-conscious lifestyles. Since their inception, Mary’s Gone Crackers has remained committed to using only whole ingredients found in nature in their Legacy, Super Seed and Real Thin lines.
The Real Thin Crackers are available in Sea Salt and Garlic Rosemary, with three additional varieties added last year: Tomato + Basil, Olive Oil + Cracked Black Pepper, and Chipotle. Each flavor features Mary’s gluten-free flour blend and fresh seasonings including organic garlic, rosemary, black pepper, and more.
Due to unprecedented consumer demand for the Real Thin varieties, Mary’s Gone Crackers expanded their Real Thin line and distribution across the U.S. and Canada last year. Mary’s Gone Crackers can be purchased at natural, specialty, mainstream grocery and club stores and via online channels.
