At the 2016 Expo West, JicaChips is continuing to expand the number of unique vegetable chips available.

The Mexican turnip or jicima is an edible root with a brown skin and a white flesh that's juicy like a pear. This unusual vegetable can be eaten on its own, but JicaChips is making the vegetable even more appealing for snacking on as a chip. These vegetable chips are now being offered in tantalizing flavors: Sea Salt, Smoked BBQ, Spicy Soy Ginger and White Cheddar. At California's Natural Products Expo West, JicaChips introduced an additional sweet-savory flavors like Cinnamon Sugar and Chili Lime.

A rise in health-conscious snacking has created a high demand for alternative fruit and vegetable chips, including those made from unexpected ingredients like spinach, Brussels sprouts, pineapple and peaches.
