Puffed rice snacks are light and airy and typically low in calories — but high in carbs and low in fiber, so they don’t provide much nutritional value.

The Quaker rice crisps, which come in various flavors, are made with corn and whole grain brown rice and are gluten-free. But make sure to read the nutritional information on the back of the bag before you toss it into your grocery cart.

The caramel flavored crisps have 240 milligrams of sodium and 10 grams of sugar for every 13 pieces. The buttermilk ranch variety racks up the salt content even further with 330 milligrams of sodium for every 17 crisps.
