Co-founder Dr. Alison Levitt M.D., a.k.a. The Dr. in the Kitchen, developed the tasty Flackers recipe because she has always believed that “Good Food is Wise Medicine," and that what you put in your body will affect how you feel, your energy level, and your sense of well being.
After years of preaching about the powerhouse benefits of flaxseed in a balanced diet, she decided to make a batch of crackers to hand out in her office. Her patients soon became obsessed with the nutrient-rich, crunchy treats—and so did their friends and family.
As demand grew for her delicious flaxseed cracker recipe, Alison decided to officially launch Flackers in 2008.
Flackers have always been USDA Organic, vegan, paleo, Non-GMO Verified and gluten-free. Our flaxseed crackers are made from simple, wholesome ingredients (that you won’t need to Google to understand).
Fun fact: just one serving of Flackers has 3-4 grams of protein, six grams of fiber and is high in omega-3 fatty acids.
Flaxseeds are low-carb, packed with fiber to help maintain normal cholesterol levels and promote optimal digestion, and are naturally high in alpha linolenic acid, a heart healthy omega-3 fatty acid.
We now have six different recipes: Sea Salt, Savory, Cinnamon and Currants, Tomato Basil, Rosemary, and Dill. Flackers are available nationwide in co-ops to major grocery stores like Whole Foods, HyVee, H.E.B., Sprouts, Albertsons, Ralph’s and many more. You can also buy them through our website, Amazon.com, Thrive Market, VitaCost.com and other online retailers.
