Hi fasttracklady– it’s pretty easy to figure out with the FP calculator. You just need the glycemic index of the food, carbohydrate grams, fiber grams, and sugar alcohol (artificial sweeteners ending in “ol”…sorbitol, etc.) content. Assuming these crackers have the same GI as graham crackers at 74, the FP would be 6. Using Norm’s recommendation to estimate the GI to be 50 if it is unknown, the GI is 7. Both are in the upper range of low FP. This number will be higher if there is sugar alcohol in the crackers. You will find the FP calculator tab in the black bar above.
