In a recent blog about Allergy lessons learnt on holiday in Portugal I forgot to mention these delicious new crackers I found in one of the supermarkets. I’ve never seen them in the UK but they’re called Le pain des fleurs” and are produced in France . The ingredients are not in English so I hadn’t tried them until today, wanting to translate each item to ensure it’s safe. The good news is that they are definitely gluten free, dairy free and are also actually really tasty.
The ingredients list is very simple:
- Farinha de arroz semi-integral (rice flour)
- Farinha de quinoa (quinoa flour)
- Acucar muscavado 2% (sugar)
- Sal (salt)
The packet is clearly marked ‘sin gluten’ in the top left hand corner and they are also organic and fair trade. They look like corn crackers I’ve bought in England before and are pretty similar really, but much slimmer and crisper.
I really enjoyed them with some humous with my lunch today and would highly recommend them. Great for lunch boxes, snacks, with cheese (if you can eat dairy) and with dips.
I have never seen these in the UK or any other quinoa crackers for that matter, but if you’re in Europe, look out for them. Meanwhile I shall be contacting the manufacturers to find out where they can be bought over here.

Anyone else tried these? What did you think? Or have you found another brand of quinoa crackers? Which are you favourite gluten free biscuits crackers? If you live in the UK and can’t find them I hope I’m not making your mouth water too much.
