Start-up snack label Planetarians deliver a selection of snack options that highlight one special ingredient -- upcycled defatted sunflower seeds. This ingredient goes through a process to be broken down and produced into a sustainable and nutritious protein flour. The defatted process essentially draws out the dry matter that remains after extracting all of the oils of the seeds.
The protein powder can then be used in baked goods and snack recipes including the label's sunflower chips. These chips are completely plant-based but boast a protein amount equal to animal products with more fiber and less fat than traditional potato chips. The nutritious sunflower chip flavors include 'Fiery Sriracha,' 'Sweetly Cinnamon,' and 'Sweet & Smoky BBQ.'
