Hi Rebecca!

I had the great fortune of discovering your wonderful crackers at the Saratoga Race Track. Both representatives working the booth were top notch! Very pleasant, informative and not pushy. I spent abt $60 on crackers!! Lol

I am curious as to why cornstarch is used vs Xanthan gum or guar gum. My research indicates the latter are better for digestion and lower in carbs. As someone with a sensitive tummy and watching carb intake, this is important to me.

I’m sure you’ve researched this exhaustively. Thank you for a response.

You’re website is incredible!!

To great eats,
