It was a moral dilemma:

What’s a girl to do with six bags of tortilla chips, when all of the bags are different flavors and all of the flavors sound mighty tasty?

I’m pleased to say that I decided to share my bags of Way Better Snacks’ tortilla chips. Well, most of them. Not the Sweeet Potato (3 E’s, yes) chips. It was a funny thing: I opened the bag, and my name was written on every. single. one.

So what makes these chips different from your standard gluten-free snackable?

The biggest difference is that Way Better Snacks chips have sprouted grains and seeds. Sprouted foods are more nutritious because the process of sprouting (and turning into a plant) breaks the seed down into more easily accessible blocks of nutrition, and increases its vitamin content.

Each flavor of chip has a different profile of sprouted goodness, built on a base of stone-ground corn. The major players are quinoa, chia, broccoli and daikon radish. Some have sprouted rice, flax, beans, and other tasty treats that I normally don’t see a) sprouted or b) in chips.

To let Way Better explain a bit more about why these chips are OK to hoard and keep from your friends:

  • Every serving in them has an amazing amount (between  190 – 420mg) of healthy Omega 3 essential fatty acids.
  • Our Broccoli and Diakon Radish seeds* are so nutritious they have much of the same nutrition as fresh mature Broccoli.
  • The Antioxidant levels in sprouted ingredients is on average twice that of the same non-sprouted ingredients
  • Each serving of our chips contain a whopping 17 grams of whole grains

The chips come in Multi-Grain, Unbeatable Blues (and also a salt-free Unbeatable Blue), Sweet Potato, Sweet Chili and Black Bean. All are vegan, certified gluten-free by the GFCO, non-GMO, Kosher, and free of trans fats and artificial colors/flavors/preservatives.
