Unlike most of the conventional biscuits on the shelves, certified organic biscuits and crackers are made with ingredients that have been grown without the use of chemical pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers. The ingredients have also been grown using sustainable farming methods to protect the environment.
Organic biscuits are made with organic milk and eggs, therefore they have higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids and you avoid the growth hormone and antibiotic residues that are found in conventional biscuits.
The Australian Organic Directory lists companies who sell certified organic biscuits that are both sweet and savoury. Savoury biscuits include Quackers crackers, flaxseed crackers and brown rice crisp crackers which are all gluten-free. Sweet biscuits include several varieties of delicious cookies as well as gluten-free cookies for those with allergies.
