It’s been three decades since Terra brand Root Chips first hit the market: a glamorous, tasty and seemingly better-for-you bag of gourmet chips made from batata, parsnip, ruby taro (most people think they’re beets), sweet potato, taro and yucca.
Segments of our chip-happy society embraced them, and they remain one of the fancy chip alternatives we serve to guests.
But what about veggies that don’t slice neatly into a round chip?
Rhythm Superfoods shows how to do it, with its curly kale chips—a raw food slowly dried at 118°F or lower. Instead of baking or frying, foods cooked with raw food techniques maintain nutrients that are lost at higher heats.
The result is a nutrient-rich alternative to standard chips, 106 calories per ounce (Terra Chips have 140 calories, potato chips have about 155 calories, depending on the brand).
The chips are made in five flavors: Bombay Curry, Kool Ranch, Mango Habanero, Texas BBQ and Zesty Nacho.
Kale is a nutritional powerhouse, says the manufacturer, with one serving providing 150% Daily Value (DV) of Vitamin A and 117% of Vitamin C.
The brand is certified organic by the USDA, gluten-free, cholesterol-free and vegan.
