    Probably a really silly question!
    I went to supermarket yesterday to get some Ryvitas but they didn't have any wholegrain crackerbreads so I got the original crackerbreads. Can these be used as a healthy extra B or not?
    I can only see the wholegrain crackerbreads listed as a HEXB but the syn values for the original and wholegrain seem the same?
    Should i just syn the original crackerbreads then? :confused:

    The original crackerbreads, whilst the same cal/syn value, can't be used as a B choice as they don't have enough fibre.

    You can have 4 original/dark rye/sesame as a HEX B or 3 multigrain/sunflower seeds and oats or 2 breaks/fruit breaks or pumpkin seeds and oats

    ........so, yes you can! :)
    (or is a crackerbread something different from 'ryvita original')? confused!

    No these are different. OP is talking about the crackerbreads (6 for a HEB) rather than the ordinary ryvita. And for these only the wholegrain ones count - but I've never managed to find them anywhere :(

    CP - the crackerbreads are different, they are a lighter crispbready type thing and you get 6 of them for a B choice.
    They are fab! They come in a beige coloured box with crackerbread in red right across them and ryvita in the corner. They do original and wholegrain but only the wholegrain are a B choice.

    Ooo 2 different answers confusing!!! :confused:
    Cocktailprincess they are the original crackerbreads not crispbreads and as far as I can see they only mention the wholegrain crackerbreads.
    I'm guessing the original don't have enough fibre to be counted as a healthy extra?
    I'll probably syn them as they're low syn and use my HEXB on something else!!
    Thanks though guys! :thankyou:

    Yeh it was a big Tesco I was in and they didn't have any :( and didn't even look like there was an empty space on shelf where they should be so thats why I got the original as I generally prefer crackerbreads to the other Ryvitas.
    Ok I will be definitely synning them then!!

    Sorry for the confusion! My mistake entirely

    I have never seen these, but am now intrigued- are they nice (the wholegrain ones?)

    Oh ok!! I just went to have a look on the Ryvitas website to see what packaging was like and thats where i got the pic from!
    Yeh from your pic you wouldn't klnow they were Ryvits!
    I suppose you could get another brand of wholegrain crackerbread.
    Where do you get yours from Jaylou??

    I get mine from Tesco but not from my store as they don't have them, I can only get them when I have it delivered. I got the pic from the Tesco website.

    Try them CP, they're lovely!
