Healthy Snacks Produced from Locally Grown Vegetables
Daeng's Vegetable Crackers
Daeng Mellander's passion for food has followed her throughout her life. Growing up in Thailand, Daeng discovered her love of all things culinary from her mother and helped her sell food in their rural town. Daeng built on this early introduction to food that resulted in her managing three restaurants in Sweden and happily sharing her knowledge of authentic North Eastern Thai food.
In 2008, Daeng, her husband Per-Erik and two children, made the move to Co. Wexford. After settling in, Daeng was pleasantly surprised by the quality and abundance of fresh local produce easily available. Having a longstanding appreciation for authentic and local foods, Daeng wanted to provide an alternative way for consumers to enjoy vegetables, thus forming Daeng's Healthy Foods, creating healthy products from locally sourced vegetables. Daeng’s crackers are produced in Blackwater and formed similar to prawn crackers but flavoured with vegetables.
The Vegetable Crackers are a sight to behold. These tasty snacks get their vibrant colours directly from the fresh vegetables used to flavour them. You can't help but be drawn to them when you see them in local shops around Wexford. Their clear packaging draws your attention to the multitudes of colours enticing you to give them a try. Once opened, bite into these snacks that give that satisfying crunch. As bags contain a variety of flavoured crackers, you can enjoy flavours such as carrot, red cabbage, kale and beetroot. Flavours are subtle and each cracker is a new taste discovery.
Snack away on these tasty creations knowing you're enjoying a healthy alternative. Daeng's Vegetable Crackers are low in calories and with no added preservatives, colours or MSG, but full of taste. In her spare time, Daeng enjoys experimenting with new flavours and more ways in which to enjoy veggies, so we patiently wait for her next delicious creation!
