Thanks, Amazon, as always..........My husband says I can now become a hermit and live in the woods as long as there's a path to my door for my Amazon deliveries.
In any case, these are pleasant. They don't have the same consistency as FRIED plantain chips, but they still have a very pleasant crunch and these are thick enough to work well in dips. The salt level is good, not too much. Each serving has 50 mg of sodium, and a whole 4 oz bag has 200 mg. On the plus side, plantains, like bananas, have lots of potassium, so one serving has 220 mg of K, and the whole bag has a whopping 880 mg. This balances out any sodium and then some. Each serving has 1 gram of fiber. 4 grams for a whole bag.
NOTE: THIS BAG HAS FOUR SERVINGS at 140 cals each serving. If you eat the whole bag, which is dang easy to do--and which I have done, shame on me--has 560 calories. Yep. ONE BAG = 560 calories. That's a meal's worth of calories for me and most women watching their weight. That's the same calories as in a Big Mac. So, I'd strongly recommend, unless you're one of those metabolic whizzes who burn up a ton of calories, that you portion this bag out.
Low carbers will want to stay away. One serving (very small, 1/4th of this bag) is 20 grams.
For those with high cholesterol/LDL issues, be aware that Palm Olein may slightly raise your LDL. You can google that.
Otherwise, tastes nice, nice crunch, salted gently, good amount of potassium, no gluten. We enjoy these. And really, it's just three ingredients: plantains, palm olein, salt. I like simplicity in my snacks.
For anyone who isn't familiar with plantain, it is an Asian fruit, which like it's cousin, the banana, was introduced to the new world by 15th and 16th century explorers, such as the Portuguese and Spanish sailors, so calling them Inka Chips is interesting. For more than a year, I was looking for a good gluten-free cracker and I never considered a plantain chip as an excellent substitute until now, and shame on me, because I discovered them about twenty years ago. As a matter of fact, instead of making dumplings out of wheat flour, Puerto Ricans make them out of ground green plantains or bananas. I never ate plantain chips as a kid, but I did enjoy the plantain dumplings in soup; they were delicious and low in fat. Puerto Ricans also combine the ground plantain with other tropical tubers and stewed meats to make a huge dumpling that they boil in parchment paper in order to keep it intact while it cooks in a light brine; it's delicious and filling. At the West Indian markets in NYC, they sell plantain, banana, casava, and peanut flour. So, if you like to cook and experiment, you may want to make dumplings from such flours; I'm not a cook.
The Inka chips are thicker than the plantain chips that I ate years ago, making them a suitable cracker substitute. I cover them with peanut butter or fruit preserves and enjoy them as a snack. I also crush them and add them to my bowl of soup in order to give the soup a nice crunch; these chips hold up well in liquid, better than Saltine crackers, with less salt.
