I was just reading the ingredients in these Safeway whole wheat crackers and one of the last ingredients is protease - one of the enzymes that breaks down protein into amino acids in out gut, but why would a company put that in their crackers??? Just wondering if anyone had a clue. I usually eat these with my tuna fish instead of bread.

"APPLICATION OF FERMENTED FLOUR TO OPTIMISE[sic] PRODUCTION OF PREMIUM CRACKERS AND BREAD"

Yep.
