Macronutrients are substances our bodies use for energy and growth. They’re necessary to perform all bodily functions.
Macronutrients come in the form of carbohydrates, proteins and lipids (fats). Each of these items carries their own calorie count.
As a general rule of thumb, these crackers are higher in fat, and lower in carbs and protein. That’s because low carb flours are high in fat (they’re primarily ground nuts), and many of these recipes incorporate cheese in some form or fashion.
