LOVES PARK, Ill., Nov. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Crunchmaster, a leading brand of gluten-free crackers and snacks produced exclusively with high-quality, wholesome ingredients, received Gold Medal recognition as part of the American Masters of Taste Awards.
Operated by Chefs in America, a nationwide network of over 6500 corporate, high-volume and executive chefs, the award endorses food and beverage products that are superior to their competitors in taste and quality. Crunchmaster products selected for the award include:
- Multi-Seed Crackers (Original, Rosemary & Olive Oil, Roasted Garlic)
- Multi-Grain Crackers (Sea Salt, Roasted Vegetable, White Cheddar)
- Multi-Grain Crisps (Original, Sea Salt)
- 7 Ancient Grains Crackers (Sea Salt)
Judges concluded that Crunchmaster has "developed a remarkable product line of gluten-free, multigrain crackers and crisps that all have a fresh, toasty aroma of whole grains and seeds," and that "they have a crisp, fresh bite," according to a news release issued by Chefs in America.
The panel of judges followed a strict "triple blind" protocol, meaning that they did not know who the manufacturer is, what the product variety is or what kind of scores their co-evaluators handed out.
"We're incredibly proud that our gluten-free crackers and snacks impressed some of the most experienced culinary experts in the country," said Kim Holman, marketing director at TH Foods, the company that manufactures Crunchmaster products. "Our dedication to creating full-flavored, better-for-you snack options that don't sacrifice nutritional value continues to be a success, both for consumers at the grocery store and chefs in the kitchen."
All Crunchmaster products are certified gluten-free, kosher and made with brown rice and other wholesome ingredients. Many are also non-GMO project verified, 100 percent whole grain, low in sugar, contain no artificial ingredients or colors, and are free of saturated and trans fats.
