Barnana crafts plantain tortilla chips
Barnana is making a splash in the snack aisle.
The Los Angeles-based company is launching its newest innovation — plantain tortilla chips.
Available in Himalayan pink salt and lime and sea salt flavors, the tortilla chips are made from plantains instead of corn, which results in a more delicate flavor, the company said.
“Tortilla chips are a part of American culture and gatherings throughout the year,” Barnana founder, Caue Suplicy said. “We noticed that there was an opportunity for healthier options that also tastes great and could hold up to dipping in salsas and guacamoles. So, we created a tortilla chip that met and exceeded our standards with the help of plantains.”
Each bag contains chips made from seasoned plantains that have been cooked in avocado oil, and also are free of GMOs, grain and gluten.
In addition to launching its tortilla chips, the brand also is updating with logo. Designed by Brazilian graffiti artist and illustrator Speto, the Barnana logo now will be accompanied by Nana, a whimsical, playful monkey who looks to bring awareness to the brand’s mission of reducing food waste and promoting regenerative agriculture in the Amazon.
Speto created Nana based on the endangered Spider Monkey found in the tropical rainforests of Central and South America, the company said.
