Biscru are these amazingly tasty raw crackers, created by a French chef, Serge de Thaey. Serge was looking 2 create a tasty vegetarian gluten-free cracker and luckily 4 us, he came up with something that is totally raw.

the main ingredients are buckwheat, flax, sunflower and psyllium. its the addition of psyllium that makes them light & crispy.

then there R lots of different flavours – at the moment we R stocking 4 of them.

these R mi favrites (above), the black olive  & onion. we’ve also got tomato & paprika (which i think taste like frazzles), beetroot & carrot, & banana & blueberry.
