What are plantains?
Plantains are a staple food in Latin America and Africa, and are often confused with bananas. Although they are similar, Plantains are larger, and must be fully cooked. Plantains can be salty, or if left to ripen, naturally sweet.
What are the benefits of Artisan Tropic Plantain and Cassava Snacks?
All Artisan Tropic snacks are Non-GMO, Paleo, Gluten-Free, Vegan, Glyphosate Residue Free and RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) Certified. Plantain and Cassava are delicious and nutritious alternatives to tortilla and potato chips.
Why use palm oil?
Palm oil is actually the most efficient vegetable oil humans can harvest. Palm trees can produce 4-10 times more oil than other crops per unit of land. Unlike other highly refined vegetable oils, palm oil is great for cooking, as its fatty acid structure makes it extremely stable at high temperatures. Its smooth taste and absence of smell make it the perfect ingredient for many recipes and palm oil has a natural preservative effect, which helps extend the shelf life of food products.
Why strips and not chips?
Our long Strip cut makes the snack perfect for dipping in guacamole or other salsas.View the Full FAQs
California Proposition 65 (Prop 65)
Prop 65 is a unique California law requiring businesses to warn consumers against products that may contain quantifiable amounts of over nine-hundred possible chemicals, including lead. Prop 65 limits for lead are in some cases nearly 1,000 times lower than the EPA’s “No Significant Risk Levels”. Due to the presence of lead in soil, plants of all types may naturally contain lead and other metals in trace amounts through no act of adulteration. While originally well intended, Prop 65 was vaguely written and ill-conceived, now allowing a host of opportunistic lawyers to take advantage of unsuspecting retailers and manufacturers by filing a flurry of notices alleging lead content in food products and seeking monetary gain in the form of a very costly settlement (over $26 million in settlements in 2015 alone). Most companies can prove the level is meaninglessly low — but that is extremely expensive to do in court. So, most companies end up settling even when they are not liable, to avoid the expense of litigation.
Artisan Tropic recently learned that Prop 65 has added plantains and cassava to their list of products that may contain quantifiable amounts of over nine-hundred possible chemicals, including lead. While we believe that our products conform to Proposition 65, we are unable to bear the financial burden to fight this legal battle in court. Due to the seemingly endless risk and liability, Retailers, Manufacturers, Restaurants and others are posting warnings to excess which are now mostly ignored by the very people they are intended to protect.
We list all ingredients included in each of our Artisan Tropic products, both on our website and on each bag. In addition to being very delicious, we believe there are many health benefits to each of our ingredients.
