Plantain Republic's Plantain Squares Add Texture to Salads

While some consumers may be familiar with plantain chips as a healthy alternative to traditional potato chips, Plantain Republic also offers creative new products like 100% natural, gluten-free croutons made from plantains. The Plantain Croutons are shaped into squares and are lightly salted, providing a satisfying way for everything from salads and soup to be enhanced with added texture.

Even though some populations are more familiar with plantains than others, this member of the banana family is emerging as an unusual ingredient addition to everything from baked cookies to plant-based pasta noodles. Plantains are rich in vitamins A and C, plus potassium, and they are also a good source of fiber in a fat-free format.
