Oriental Rice Crackers Nutrition

Oriental rice crackers contain mostly rice and are typically flavored with soy sauce, sugar, seaweed and chili. These crackers are relatively low in calories, making them healthier choices than potato chips, cheese crackers or other fatty snacks. Although you should limit added sugar in your diet -- it has no nutritional value other than calories -- the small amount in Oriental rice crackers can fit into a healthy diet, provided you stick with just one serving.

Nutrition Breakdown

Nutrition data varies by product, but rice crackers from one brand contain 110 calories per 1/2 cup, while those from another brand contain 120 calories in the same serving. Respectively, they also contain 6 percent and 8 percent of the 2,400-milligram daily value for sodium; 8 percent and 9 percent of the 300-gram DV for carbohydrates; and 3 grams and 2 grams of protein per serving. Each is fat-free and contains 1 gram of sugar. The recommended daily allowance for protein is 46 grams per day for women and 56 grams per day for men, so these crackers only meet a small fraction of your protein needs. The crackers also contain 1 gram of fiber, or 4 percent of the DV, per serving, and no appreciable amount of any vitamins or minerals.
