Each of us has some talents or weaknesses or even oddities which may become the basis for creativity and make us search for new paths. The idea of "Krippu" crackers came up at a time when their creator discovered she has cow's milk protein intolerance, so she had to look for alternative ways to ingest protein that is so necessary for the body. It is well known that legumes are a valuable source of protein, so she started to wonder how to prepare them as a snack that she could easily pick up when going to work or give to her children. Finally, the experiments succeeded resulting in a healthy snack made of natural ingredients with no artificial additives.
Given that the problems caused by a variety of food allergies are affecting more and more people, "Krippu" creator Jolanta Māziņa decided to start a company so that she could offer a newly developed product to others. Thereby JOLLE Ltd. was founded – the company that produces high-quality, nutritious pea snacks. In order to ensure that during the manufacturing process the product does not come into touch with any kind of allergen new equipment was ordered specially for producing "Krippu". We guarantee that "Krippu" crackers do not contain traces of gluten, milk, eggs, sesame seeds, nuts, soybeans, nor any other allergens.

SIA "JOLLE" donated crunchy chickpea' crackers "Krippu" to both camps and provided a masterclass in camps that took place in Jelgava region Dzirnieki. The aim of the masterclass was to teach children how to make healthy and delicious snacks on a chickpea crackers basis. In the summer of 2017, the Latvian Celiac Society "Gluten-Free Life" organized two gluten-free camps for children who have to follow a strict gluten-free diet on a daily basis.
Children tasted, smelled and learned about components of chickpeas crackers "Krippu". Kids tried to find out what’s the difference between “Krippu” with hemp seeds and the version with chili. That was a good reason to discuss different herbs and introduce some of them. Children smelled and tasted the herbs oregano, dill, coriander. The most interesting part followed: snack making with “Krippu” themselves.
Guys came up with butter mixed with herbs and greens, another group of kids made delicious “Krippu” crackers with avocado, white radish, and tomatoes. The main thing was to deliciously decorate them afterwards.
Children were surprised and delighted by the opportunity to prepare the hemp butter themselves and to try how good it goes together with “Krippu” crackers. Some girls were especially delighted making the pink soft creamer themselves.
Great and so rewarding day for both – children and “Krippu” people!
Celiac disease is a serious case, and especially for children, it's not easy to follow a gluten-free diet routine. We were delighted that we can introduce children to the delicious gluten-free “Krippu” and encourage them to try a variety of simple, healthy and gluten-free recipes. 10/08/2017
