Le Pain des Fleurs Crispbread
Just the words “Le Pain des Fleurs” make me think of the South of France where rolling fields of lavender and flowers always seem to be in bloom. Meaning “the bread of flowers,” Le Pain des Fleurs are organic, gluten-free, low sodium, low-fat, dairy, egg, wheat, and soy-free crisp breads that are crunchy, wholesome, and delicious as is or topped with tapenade, jam, chopped vegetables, cheese, hummus, tabbouleh, or your favorite spread. In a few words: France’s answer to Melba Toast.
Le Pain des Fleurs crackers are made in Peaugres, France, a town located in the southern part of the country, about 40 miles south of Lyon, using all organic ingredients: brown rice flour, rice four, buckwheat flour, chestnut flour, quinoa flour, millet flour, cane sugar (only in the quinoa and buckwheat varieties and there is still less than 1 gram of sugar in four crackers), and a touch of sea salt.
Four varieties of crackers are offered: Ancient Grain, Buckwheat, Chestnut, and Quinoa. The crackers are sealed and sold in a 4.4 ounce box that contains approximately 28 rectangular shaped crackers, for about $5 at grocery stores nationwide and on-line at www.vitacost.com, www.walmart.com, www.soap.com, and www.amazon.com.
