Filled with great taste
Filled crispy flat breads are an interesting variation because they combine two textures: a crispy outer biscuit and a soft filling. The filling provides the dominant flavor to the product, complemented by the toasted taste of the biscuit.
They are popular within a wide range of consumers, but are particularly appreciated by children and young people. Since they require no cooking nor preparation, they are handy to eat at home or to take to school or work.
Endless creative combinations
Wheat flour is commonly the major ingredient for the outside of filled crispy flat breads, often blended with rice, corn or other grains, such as barley, oats and rye, and they can also be gluten free. Other ingredients, including sugar, salt, milk powder, colors and oil, are generally added for their specific functional and taste properties.
Common fillings include chocolate (dark, milk or white), vanilla, jams, peanut butter and various fruit pastes: dates, prunes, berries, apples, etc.
