Three striking new flavours of Sakata rice crackers have been released using beetroot, spinach, and pumpkin.
Free of MSG, gluten, and artificial colours, the new cracker varieties are infused with vegetable extracts which give each of red, green, and orange rice crackers a strikingly bright colour.
The new rice cracker flavours are part of Sakata’s range of ‘better-for-you’ savoury snacks designed to be eaten alone, or alongside your favourite dips and cheese.
We love seeing these healthful ways people are brightening up their food – just check out this blue pasta – the colour of which is naturally derived from spirulina – and this purple latte courtesy of the taro root.
It’s unsurprising beetroot would make an appearance in the range. Effectively the superfood du jour, not only is beetroot a great source of natural red colouring, its juice was recently found to be more effective boosting exercise than regular sports drinks.
Retailing around $1.50, the 50g packets of individual flavours are on sale from May 7th in supermarkets and selected independent grocers across the country.
