When 5-year-old Ella, the niece of CrispRoot founder Hermanto, experienced significant improvement in her autistic behavior by eating gluten-free-dairy-free foods (GFCF), CrispRoot’s mission was born: to create “snacks with a halo” that both improve quality of life and also honor conservation of the environment — two issues very close to Hermanto’s heart. Upon discovering that great-tasting GFCF foods were few and far between, Hermanto set out to craft a savory and tasty snack that would brighten the lives of Ella and her friends dealing with autism and celiac disease. The result was the brilliantly healthy, delicious CrispRoot Chips snack made out of sustainably-grown Cassava root.
CrispRoot Chips are made out of the root from the Cassava shrub (Manihoc esculenta), a plant native to South America that is also cultivated throughout Asia and Africa. Cassava — also known as tapioca, manioc, and yuca — grows year round in arid conditions and requires little water for cultivation, making it the ideal drought-tolerant, resource-conserving crop. As the primary energy source for over 800 million people around the world, Cassava root provides an incredibly healthy food that offers a tasty alternative to fatty, unnatural snack foods.
With 30-40% less fat and double the fiber of regular potato chips, CrispRoot Chips are made with all-natural ingredients. Made in four absolutely savory flavors, CrispRoot’s Original, Sea Salt, BBQ, and Ginger versions have a scrumptious ridged texture just like leading potato chips, but without the trans-fat or cholesterol. And just as CrispRoot Chips are healthy for the body, the company has ensured that theirproduction is also healthy for the planet.
Living in south Florida has exposed me to many fruits and vegetables I never knew about growing up in Virginia! Root vegetables like cassava is one of them! We loved these CrispRoot chips and each had a different favorite. I loved the sea salt, Noah loved the BBQ and Jamie loved the ginger. They are super crispy and high in flavor and I feel good giving them to my family!
