Best New Savory or Salty Snack: Pulp Pantry, Jalapeño Lime Pulp Chips
"“Mission is at the forefront for Pulp Pantry, a company that is turning the critical food industry problem of food waste into an opportunity to upcycle organic ingredients into desirable, fiber-rich food products. The Jalapeño Lime Pulp Chips are tangy as all get out—they're sweetened with the lesser-known superfood lucuma rather than sugar—and judges were super impressed by its vegetable-rich ingredient list. This product contains more fiber than kale chips and fewer carbs than potato or tortilla chips. Pulp Pantry also hopes to work with accreditation agencies to create carbon offsets associated with upcycling food.”
