As part of my battle to eat more healthy and lose that little bit of excess weight I’m carrying (only 7lb’s to go) I decided to buy myself some Ryvita. I always remember as a small child, mum having Original Ryvita in the cupboard which I always thought resembled some form of pitted cardboard, but I’m always up for giving things a try and if I don’t like them, bottom line, I don’t buy them again.

what is Ryvita?

Ryvita comes in a variety of different Rye crisp breads and baked wheat cracker breads coupled with Ryvita mini snacks and Ryvita thins and are basically wholegrain crackers which are high in fibre and low in everything else…very nutritious and a good healthy option for people who are on a diet or even if you’re just looking for a light tasty snack.

About Ryvita Original

The Ryvita variety I have at the moment is the Ryvita Original Crisp bread which is quite simple containing only Wholegrain Rye flour, Rye flour and salt….you can’t really get much more basic than that. The packaging confirms that this product is suitable for people who wish to avoid; MSG, Tree nuts, Peanuts, Milk, Egg, Yeast, Crustacean, Fish, S02 & sulphides, Celery, Mustard and GMO. The product is also suitable for vegetarians.

Ryvita Original Crisp breads are basically small rectangular crackers that are oatmeal coloured and don’t really resemble cardboard. They are very crispy and dry, especially if you choose to eat them without any form of spread, or topping, and I wouldn’t recommend you eat them without an accompaniment.

The main thing I like about Ryvita is how versatile they are, you can eat them with pretty much anything….dollop on some low fat cream cheese with some thinly sliced cucumber or celery and enjoy a healthy tasty lunchtime snack, or…pop some broken up Ryvita into your lunchtime soup or salad to act as crispy croutons, or alternatively you could just dip the crisp bread in your soup…they’re even tasty just nice and simply buttered.

Nutritional information

A single slice of Ryvita original contains a mere 32 calories. Sugars, fats and saturated fats are all present at less than 1% of your GDA.

My thoughts and opinion

At only 32 calories per crisp bread, it really is amazing how filling this actually is…and a packet really does go a long way. I estimate that you get around 25 crackers in a pack, and at only 0.87p a pack, that’s set to last a good couple of weeks at least. I know most people may not find this the most taste bud tantalising snack in the world, but it’s healthy, it’s nutritious, and I personally like the taste, and it’s allowing me to be a little more creative with my lunch. If you’re looking for something that’s not quite as high in calories as bread then I definitely recommend that you give Ryvita a try.
