Ingredients for Flavor

We use paprika, spices and dehydrated onions as flavorings in the dough.
Used to enhance the savory flavor of foods.
A common term for flavors which give products their distinctive tastes. Natural flavors, oils or extracts can be derived from a wide range of foods such as fruits, vegetables and herbs. We choose natural flavors in order to avoid using artificial flavors.
We use table salt in the dough to add seasoning and flavor.
Ingredients for Texture
Whole Wheat Flour
Derived from the wheat grain, the flours that we use in our Goldfish crackers help to provide a desired textural experience. This flour is milled to preserve the whole grains.
Enriched Wheat Flour
The flour is enriched with essential nutrients: niacin, reduced iron, thiamine mononitrate (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2) and folic acid. The flour we use is made from soft red winter wheat grown in the US and Canada.
Ingredients for Color
Annatto is used in cheddar cheese to give it the orange hue. The coloring is extracted from the reddish seeds of the achiote tree, which grows in tropical climates.
Ingredients for Leavening
Yeast – in combination with leavening agents
We use these ingredients to give the crackers their distinctive puffiness. We use Baking Soda as well as Monocalcium Phosphate and Ammonium Bicarbonate to help the crackers rise in the oven. Sugar is also required to activate the yeast.
