#1. Julian Bakery Paleo Thin Crackers
Julian Bakery Paleo Thin Crackers are a popular brand of low carb crackers in the paleo community, as well as the keto community. They are low-carb, gluten-free, paleo, on top of being delicious, and crunchy. Their crackers are made grain-free, non-GMO, rice-free, and soy-free with organic ingredients only.
There are two flavors of crackers which are: Salt and Pepper flavor and Parmesan flavor.
In the table below there is nutritional information on both of the flavors of Julian Bakery Paleo Thin Crackers on a serving size of 6 crackers or 14 grams.

|Salt And Pepper||Organic blanched almond flour, organic cassava flour, organic garlic powder, organic paprika|
|Parmesan||Organic Parmesan cheese (pasteurized grass-fed organic cows milk, salt, cheese cultures & enzymes), filtered water, organic tapioca flour|
Can you eat Julian Bakery Paleo Thin Crackers on the keto diet?
When you analyze the nutritional information table you can see that both flavors of crackers are low in carbs at only 5 grams and 3 grams of net carb for a serving of 6 crackers or 14 grams. This means that they can easily fit into the daily carbs of a keto and low carb dieter.
When analyzing the ingredients list we can see that they are using non-GMO, organic ingredients that are carefully sourced- which is definitely a plus. Also, most of the ingredients in Julian’s crackers are keto-friendly, except the organic cassava flour and organic tapioca flour.
Both cassava flour and tapioca flour come from the same root- the cassava root but they are made through a different process. Cassava flour is the cassava root just peeled, dried and graded and the tapioca flour is the extracted starch from the cassava root.
The cassava root is starchy and therefore is high in carbohydrates, which means that both cassava flour and tapioca flour aren’t ketogenic. But, the small amounts of net carbs means that both are present only in small amounts.
This puts these cracks as not strictly keto-friendly, however, they are great for those who are not on a strict keto diet and those on a low-carb diet.
