New in the Market: Top Seedz Crackers

by JO-ANN HESLIN, MA, RD, CDN on MARCH 29, 2021

If you like seeds this is the brand for you. Top Seedz (Crackers – Top Seedz) is a company based in Buffalo, NY with the mission of offering seed-rich crackers and roasted seeds.

Seeds are the embryo of a new plant so they are rich in health-promoting vitamins and minerals. Once considered too high in fat, we

now know that seeds contain healthy plant-based oils which should be part of a healthy diet.

Top Seedz has created a selection of crackers, almost more like chips, using a collection of seeds plus a few other ingredients. All varieties are vegan, gluten free, and certified kosher (Buffalo Vaad Hakashrus It is a little hard to define a serving because the crackers come in irregular shapes. The package says 7 crackers (1 ounce) is a serving. The crackers are packaged in a 5-ounce, recloseable, plastic container, which means one-fifth of the package would be a serving.

Cumin, Rosemary and Sea Salt flavors all contain sunflower, sesame, flax and pumpkin seeds. One serving has 150 calories, 3 grams of protein, 13 grams carb (with 2 grams fiber and no sugar), and 115 milligrams of sodium (Sea Salt 90 milligrams). Sea Salt was our favorite.

6 Seed adds chia and hemp seeds to the basic seed mix and is Paleo-friendly. One serving has 170 calories, 4 grams of protein, 10 grams of carb (with 3 grams of fiber and no sugar), and 90 milligrams of sodium.

Roasted Seeds Maple Magic has just 4 ingredients – sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, maple syrup and olive oil. One serving equals 1-ounce (1/3 cup) with 160 calories, 6 grams of protein, 7 grams of carb (with 2 grams of fiber and 4 grams of sugar, 3 of which are added sugar), no sodium, and 180 milligrams of potassium. Roasted Seeds are an excellent snack, alone, or as a sprinkle on other foods.
