I went looking for a grain free cracker after discovering my husband Ron was gluten intolerant and couldn’t find a cracker that met my criteria. I wanted a cracker free of rice, corn, soy, dairy, wheat, sugar, grain or fillers. That’s when I realized I needed to develop my own recipe.
Since what I wanted in a cracker wasn’t available anywhere, I began my journey to find the perfect balance of “flavor, crisp and crunch” with few and simple ingredients. So, I leased an industrial space in Ventura, California and turned an empty warehouse into a dedicated gluten-free facility for Jilz Gluten Free Crackerz. Creating the cracker and opening the “Crackery” was just the beginning. Getting Jilz into the marketplace, onto every shelf possible and into the hands of every gluten-free-needing consumer was and continues to be the biggest and most rewarding challenge.
