What are puffed snacks?
Puffed snacks, or “extruded” snacks as known all over the world in the food industry, are a lighter, air-popped chip/cracker/popcorn hybrid. They’re often made with gluten-free wheat alternatives, and – with the widespread decline in sugar – many are low-sugar, savoury, and diverse in healthier flavours, such as Brussel sprout or cauliflower. To increase transparency they have fewer and simpler ingredients, and to please the non-dairy folk, many are dairy free too. Of course, all processed foods are still something to be wary of, but with wheat-free options, low-sugar options, and fewer sketchy ingredients, it seems the snack industry is accommodating the desire for more wholesome foods.
