Barnana Introduces Organic Plantain Crisps

Barnana is introducing Organic Plantain Crisps. “Plantains are an incredibly versatile fruit, used in countless ways globally,” says Caue Suplicy, Barnana founder. “Our new Organic Plantain Crisps are a savory, crispy, layered chip perfect for Americans who love potato chips but seek something new that’s made from ingredients that are better for you and better for the planet. If you’ve ever tasted a tostón (also known as a patacón in Ecuador), a beloved and popular snack in Latin America, you’ll be familiar with the unique taste experience in store from our new Crisps.” 

The crisps are savory, according to the company, because they’re made from organic green plantains which are rich in resistant starch that has not yet converted to sugar. They’re fried in organic coconut oil, mashed then fried again to create a unique, flaky and layered texture. Available in sea salt and garlic varieties, they contain 0 grams of sugar per serving and are gluten- and grain-free and Paleo-friendly.

They will be available online beginning in August and will be at retail in mid-September. Four-ounce bags have an SRP of $4.99.
