Product Description

Product Description

These tasty, nutritious snacks are made from slices of plantain, a variety of banana. Our Inka Chips are sliced, then roasted in pure palm olein oil with a little salt. The result is a light, crispy, crunchy snack with a nutty flavor that tastes somewhat like potato or corn chips, and not all like bananas! No hydrogenated oils. We do not use ingredients that were produced using biotechnology. Product of Peru.

About the Brand

Inka Crops is devoted to the production and processing of spices, cereals, grains, and gourmet snacks, working together with Andean communities to grow and process native and traditional latin food, rediscovering the Inka's Lost Crops.

These plantain chips have just the right amount of thickness and crunch to make them satisfying as a crunchy snack. They are not a sweet snack like banana chips, but more like a thicker salty potato chip. One oz. has 60 mg sodium and 220 mg of potassium, 6 g fat, 1 g of fiber, no cholesterol, and 140 calories. These chips would be good for most people with food allergies, since the only ingredients are plantains, palm olein, and sea salt.

These are the best roasted, lightly salted plantain chips I have ever had. I have tried many brands and these are the best hands down. They are full flavored but not over-powering. They have just enough salt on them to taste but it does not cover the flavor of the plantains themselves. Great product.

The 4 ounce Inka Plantain Chips countains 4 servings of 140 calories each (60 calories from fat). Sodium 60 mg., Potassium 220 mg, Total Fat 6g (9%), Saturated Fat 2.5 g (13%), 0 Trans Fat, Carbohydrates 20g (0 sugar), Protein 1g, Fiber 1g, Vitamin A (6%), Vitamin C (15%). The good news about the fat is that it is a plant based saturated short chain fatty acid, so your body can digest it efficiently.

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.

We gave up gluten a year and a half ago, and so no crackers/toast. But we still like crunchy snacks. I don't like to have a lot of corn snacks (GMO worries), so I hope plantains are safer from this. Not sure.

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.

I'm on the Autoimmune Paleo Protocol and was browsing in Whole Foods for a snack. I chose between these salty ones and sweet ones by the same company. I think they're tastier, more satisfying than any kind of chips I've had, including potato chips and corn chips. They're not cheap, but these days nothing healthy is. I ordered some and also put them on my monthly shipment from Amazon. It's a good size package that can easily make two afternoon snacks. Giving up sugar, grains, dairy, and deadly nightshades, we don't have to feel deprived, but it does take some diligence to ferret out the healthy stuff that actually tastes good enough to eat. I make my own kombucha, and I've just discovered Kevita drinks which are pretty good in some flavors.

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.

I have ordered these chips twice and both times they were delivered in a timely manner and were fresh and delicious. They are salted perfectly and a great substitute for anyone craving salted banana chips. They are more consistently crunchy than many brands of salted banana chips which tend to clump. They really do taste fresh - no rancid oil taste here!
