Riceworks is a gluten-free snack that comes in five flavors: Sea Salt, Tangy BBQ, Sweet Chili, Salsa Fresca, and Parmesan.
When I was recently contacted by the company, I looked into the gluten-free status of the crisps.
I had eaten them before, based on the ingredients list, but I always want to find out more before I recommend a product to you.
Riceworks is well informed about celiac disease and understands the importance of people having safe gluten-free food to eat. Here is their response on their FAQ page about the gluten-free status of Riceworks:
“We can assure you riceworks is 100% gluten free. We send our samples to an outside lab, which have returned “none detected at a 3ppm level”. We rely on good manufacturing practices in our plant and with our suppliers. Although the plants are not gluten free, the lines that are used to manufacture riceworks® are. There are only a small number of ingredients that include gluten in our plants. These are well marked, stored separately and used on different lines, and even in different rooms in the plants. After running any allergen containing materials, a full cleaning of the line is completed before moving back to non-allergen products.”
All five flavors contain sesame seeds. Only the Parmesan flavor contains milk, and only the sweet chili flavor contains soy.
With that out of the way, lets talk about the snacks. Officially they are called crisps. I think that’s a good name for them. They are a little sturdier than many chips, and might even be able to be used like a cracker, but they are not as thick as a cracker.
They are plenty crunchy and come in a variety of flavors. Until recently, I had only tried the sea salt flavor which I liked. The company sent me free product coupons and I was only able to find small bags of sea salt and salsa fresca at a nearby RiteAid store.
My son and I both enjoyed the salsa fresca flavor. Neither of us are big on spicy hot foods. These chips had just enough spice for our tastes and reminded us of Doritos chips. I’m betting that the other flavors are pretty good too. These snack would be a great addition to a holiday party.
