(Frequently Asked Questions)

What is a soda cracker? A soda cracker is a crispy, toasty square cracker made with simple ingredients, flour, shortening, yeast and sodium bicarbonate. The soda cracker was created in Great Britain, in the 1800’s as a bread substitute for long sea voyages. It sustained the sailors’ nutrition needs during the voyage and was stored in tin cans to endure the harsh climate.

Why are they called “export” soda crackers? Soda crackers came to the Islands of the Caribbean in crates labeled “export”. Merchants that came to port to buy the crackers in bulk called out for the “export crackers”. The name stuck and became so common that it was later used in some products labels.

What is the difference between soda crackers and saltines? Saltines undergo very short fermentation process. They use chemical agents to speed it up. As a result, saltines are fluffy and airy. They have sprinkled salt on top. Their best use is with soup. On the other hand, soda crackers undergo a long fermentation process and use all natural ingredients. The alkaline soda is added at the end to halt fermentation in a natural way. As a result, their texture is harder and crispier and the flavor is like leavened bread. Both have perforations over their surface but soda crackers do not have sprinkled salt on top. Soda crackers are used as a bread substitute.

What are the main uses of a soda cracker? Soda crackers are easily digestible therefore they are used at various occasions during the day and with a variety of toppings. In the morning they go great with butter or peanut butter & jelly accompanied with a hot cup of coffee, tea, or a glass of milk or juice. Some people love them with cheese. Other swears by a quick lunch of soda crackers with tuna fish. Pregnant women consume them in the morning, to avoid morning sickness. Also, for an easy to digest midnight snack that’s also low in calories, try them with ham & cheese.

Rovira Biscuits Corporation uses the best ingredients to manufacture their delicate products. First of all we use unbleached, enriched, wheat flour in a fermentation process that slowly and naturally works the gluten protein naturally present in wheat flour and gives it a unique flavor and texture profile. We also use palm oil that is not hydrogenated therefore has no trans-fat. We even use the same yeast that’s used for grape fermentation in the process of making wine!

Benefits of consuming soda crackers:

• Easily digestible carbohydrates and protein.
• Aids in digestion since it contains sodium bicarbonate.
• Supports fast metabolism and gives us energy: The starchy endosperm of the grain converts into glucose to give quick energy.
• Shelf Life: it is extremely shelf stable if stored properly and does not go rancid like bread does.
• Does not require extensive preparation. It is a good food to eat on the go and it also pairs well with many toppings.
• If it is whole grain, that means wheat is left with its bran and germ, it is more nutritious and a good source of fiber.



48 soda crackers (more or less, depending on the size of your cookie sheet)
2 sticks butter
1 cup brown sugar, packed

Pinch of kosher salt
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups crushed Heath Bars or walnuts or peanuts


1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Evenly place approximately 48 crackers or as many as you need to completely cover the pan.
3. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat and slowly add brown sugar while whisking. Keep combining both ingredients slowly while bringing it to a low boil. Simmer for a few minutes, whisking constantly, until mixture is thickened. It will become caramel.
4. Immediately pour the caramel mixture over the crackers, spreading with a flat spatula to make sure the cracker layer is evenly and completely covered. Bake for 8 minutes.
5. Remove the pan from the oven and immediately sprinkle the chips evenly on top of the cracker layer. If needed, return the pan to the oven for 2-3 minutes, to soften the chips.
6. Use an offset spatula or butter knife to spread the chips into an even melted layer. Quickly sprinkle chopped Heath Bars on top of the melted chocolate layer. Let cool, and then refrigerate to harden completely.
7. Once hardened, break toffee into pieces. Store in the refrigerator.

Serve to your guests with your favorite hot beverage. This will become an instant success and conversation piece.
