These Flavored Kale Chips Take Inspiration from Asia and India

— March 31, 2016 — Lifestyle
Healthy snacking has inspired the creation of countless flavored kale chips. However, as most kale crisps are positioned as a healthier alternative potato chips, many brands simply emulate BBQ, ranch and cheesy chip flavors. Slim and Trim Snacks is diversifying this product category with some fun and exotic new kale chip flavors—Indian Masala and Asian Miso.

These flavored kale chips get their taste from a careful selection of ingredients, including authentic fermented soybean paste and classic Indian spices. In addition to boasting bold flavor, these snacks include ingredients to support good gut health, detoxification and the delivery of vitamins and minerals.

Now that consumers have become familiar with seeing basic kale chip flavors in stores, they're more likely to venture into trying novel flavors like these ones.
