I've had these in my cupboard for a while now and find myself using them more and more! I figured it was about time I gave them some notice and blog time with a little review!
Why Rice Crumbs?
Well, because I was looking for a "crumb" a while back that was dairy-free. Prior to this I used Edward & Sons Organic Bread Crumbs but ran out of them and couldn't find them locally/regionally. What I did find were these babies!
THESE are free of MANY allergens - which is always nice - even if you don't have allergies yourself, ya know!?
They're made with one ingredient and one ingredient ONLY...100% Natural Baked Brown Rice!
For all of the specifics check THIS out!
But in short...they are low in calories, have no saturated fat, cholesterol, feature good fat, carbs, protein, fiber, have 'next to NO' sodium, and even have a little bit of Vitamin C and Iron.
The Product Description on their website says...
Orgran All Purpose Rice Crumbs is a quality product ideal for use in all crumbing applications of meats, fish or vegetables. It is also versitile in sausages, added to sausage meats, or as a stuffing base to which you may add your own herbs. Also ideal as a thickener in soups and casseroles.
And I have already used it for a thickener in sauces, vegan-cheeses, soups, casseroles, bakes, stove-top meals, stir-fry dishes, and more! These are so handy and I do like the flavor, too!
