A few weeks ago we had a birthday lunch at the NFCA office. Everyone attending brought something in. I chose to bring in cheese and gluten-free crackers. I felt this was a safe, tasty choice that would be easy for me to acquire on my way into the office. Plus I really like cheese.
Finding a delicious gf cracker to bring to an event that would be attended by several very experienced celiacs with out having to shop around might have once been a very intimidating task. But fortunately for me I have a go-to gluten-free cracker I can rely on. Blue Diamond Nut Thins are available in almost every grocery store in my area, and come in a wide variety of flavors.
For this event I chose Blue Diamond’s Hint of Sea Salt Almond Nut Thins. This provided me with a solid yet crunchy cracker base that was only mildly flavored and would allow the flavors of the different cheeses to shine. Blue Diamond Nut Thins also comes in BBQ, Almond, Hazelnut, Pecan, Smokehouse, Cheddar Cheese, and Country Ranch.
In addition to making a delicious brand of crackers, Blue Diamond also takes great care to make those tasty crackers safe for the celiac community. Each production run is tested to assure it meets gluten-free standards. Each production run is sampled and tested to confirm gluten levels do not exceed 20 ppm. They are also processed in a facility that is certified gluten-free.
Blue Diamond‘s support for the celiac and gluten-free community does not only extend to safe gf manufacturing practices. They are also proud sponsors of the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness. In addition to being the exclusive sponsor of the NFCA’s popular Athletes for Awareness blog, they also provide us with monthly delicious gluten-free recipes like Hungarian Hazelnut Torte and Tomato Roasted Chicken Breasts made with their delicious products and have their own recipe box hosted on www.celiaccentral.org.
