'Dr Smood' is a wellness-focused cafe chain that specializes in serving a range of anti-inflammatory meals, beverages and snacks like the Organic DrS Eggplant Jerky.

This alternative, plant-based jerky product from the eatery is seasoned with tamari (gluten-free soy sauce), apple cider vinegar, olive oil, piquant spices, Himalayan sea salt and maple syrup as a sweetener. These specially selected ingredients are flavorful, as well as beneficial for being rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids. As such, Dr Smood calls its creation "a healthy alternative to other temptations."

As an alternative to producing traditional jerky snacks that are made from meat and loaded with sodium, many brands are reinventing jerky with unexpected fruits and vegetables like watermelon, bananas and even mushrooms.
