Made up from grain and flour, a cracker is a flat, small and crispy baked food product that is generally manufactured in huge quantities in various different shapes like rectangle, round and square. The crackers are salty, and chesse, herbs and seeds make their most common seasoning. They are counted among the nutritious staple foods or cereal grains. Generally eaten with dips and soft spreads like peanut butter, cheese, jam and butter, Crackers were invented in the year 1792. A few types of crackers are Digestive biscuits, Animal cracker, Hardtack, Oatcake, premium plus, etc.
The crackers have docking holes in them, which are made in the dough (when they are under production) to stop the formation of any large air pockets while baking these food items. These salty flour food products are manufactured by several brands such as Captain’s Wafers, Ritz Crackers, Bremner Wafers, Club Crackers, Graham Crackers, and Town House Crackers. The word cracker is generally applied to the flat biscuits because they have almost the same appearance and texture like a cookie, but they are not the cookies rather they are like savory with a salty flavor. Moreover, they also have a long shelf life.
