About GG Crackers

GG Bran Crispbread Crackers are slow-baked, thick and hearty crackers from Norway. Made from three ingredients – wheat bran, rye flour and salt, two crackers contain 8g of dietary fibre. There are many benefits of fibre – it’s essential for overall good health, fills you up, and helps maintain a healthy digestive system. It is recommended that adults get 26g to 35g of fiber per day* – GG Bran Crispbread crackers are a convenient and delicious way to get the fiber you need! For a high-fibre hit, enjoy on it's own, with a topping, or crumbled over your favourite foods.

The Importance of Fiber

  • Dietary fibre is an essential part of any diet; it improves intestinal functions and can also reduce the risk of diabetes and heart disease.
  • Fibre promotes bowel health as it improves intestinal transit.
  • A diet that includes insoluble fiber has been associated with a reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
  • In the bowel, bacteria converts fibre into short chain fatty acids, which provide energy for the body and may help protect against cancer.
  • Combats constipation.
  • Canadian guidelines recommend that healthy adults should consume 26 to 35 grams of fibre daily*.
  • High fibre foods also aid in weight loss; they:
      • require more chewing time, which gives your body time to register when you're full and you are less likely to overeat
      • tend to make a meal feel larger, so you stay full for a greater amount of time
      • tend to be less "energy dense," which means they have fewer calories for the same volume of food
