AGRIGAL ANCIENT CORN CRACKERS

Ancient corn crackers are an excellent alternative to bread. They are crispy and light, perfect to accompany all kinds of food. Their delicate flavour does not interfere with stronger-tasting foods, and they go exceedingly well with both sweet and savoury dishes. We particularly recommend ancient corn crackers as an accompaniment for cold cuts, vegetables and cheese. You will love our crackers with their new and even crispier format. Once the packet is opened, the real challenge will be not to eat them all.
  
Agrigal corn crackers are also a tasty snack. Unlike other more usual alternatives, these crackers are light, yet will satisfy mid-morning or early evening hunger pangs without the consumption of excessive calories!

WHAT ARE CORN CRACKERS?

Corn crackers are a combination of cereals pressed at a controlled temperature of varying intensity in accordance with the type of cereal used and its water content, as well as with the addition of other cereals or spices used to add flavour to the recipe. Unlike with popcorn, the corn kernels remain intact, cooked through the evaporation of their own moisture and leaving their nutritional properties unaltered. The result is a round crispy cracker with a weight of approximately 5-6 g.

A quality corn cracker should be dry, crumbly, light and with an uneven surface, which is the result of the natural expansion of the cereal.

Special high-tech systems are used to make corn crackers, which when combined with experience and artisan skill lead to the production of a simple, authentic and unique product. However, the most surprising thing is the simple composition of this foodstuff: corn and salt. It is therefore easy to understand how the quality of organic corn, cultivated, processed, checked and packaged exclusively by us, is the only true secret ingredient in Agrigal crackers.

NUTRITIONAL VALUES

Ancient corn crackers are the pride of our farm, AGRIGAL was set up in 2015 as the first company in Lombardy to process wholegrain crackers, with ANCIENT CORN, winner of the OSCAR GREEN 2016 award and holder of the AWARD FOR INNOVATION AND ECONOMIC PROCESS in 2017. These awards are also justified by the flavour and by the natural manner in which they are processed. Produced by our small workshop everyday, they are the most appreciated product in the AGRIGAL range.

ARE CORN CRACKERS GOOD FOR YOU?

Corn is rich in minerals (potassium, sodium, zinc, selenium, manganese, copper, phosphorous, magnesium, calcium and iron) and vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, and B6, as well as E, K, and J. It also contains beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin. It provides excellent levels of energy and is rich in fibre. Above all, corn is gluten free and helps combat the emergence of hypertension and diabetes. It has diuretic, anti-inflammatory and cicatrizant properties.

Consumed regularly, it facilitates the elimination of toxins and has beneficial effects against arthritis and rheumatism. It is very beneficial to the skin, the eyes and mucous membranes (which is why corn starch is often found in cosmetics). An answer to this question would be superficial and incomplete.

As with all foods, the difference lies in the ingredients used, in their processing in a manner that guarantees they are correctly cooked and that their organoleptic properties are conserved, and lastly in a moderate consumption of the product as part of a balanced diet.

CORN CRACKERS DIET AND HEALTH

Should corn crackers be favoured over bread, other crackers or breadsticks in terms of diet?
There is no single answer to this question, and as with any question related to nutrition and health it deserves some reflection. The first aspect is the lightness of the product.
The weight-volume ratio is very low, and it is therefore possible to eat more, assuming a controlled quantity of calories.

In relation to density, corn crackers have more calories than other similar products. For example, a packet of crackers (approximately 90 grams) contains 350 kcal, while 90-100 grams of bread contains on average between 280 and 300 kcal.
Therefore, when considering the ratio of weight to calories with corn crackers, it is clear that bread is the winner, but when taking into consideration the lower weight of crackers and their pleasant and characteristic flavour (which makes them ideal as a snack without the addition of dressings or cheese), the cracker remains an excellent standard food as a component of our diet. Therefore, corn is not fattening; bad habits are.
