Tasty chips from upcycled vegetable fibers

Three new flavors of Forager Project’s Pressed Vegetable Chips.

The pick: Pressed Vegetable Chips from the Forager Project

Why they rate: San Francisco-based Forager Project has three new flavors of its surprisingly crunchy and tasty veggie chips: Chipotle BBQ Greens, Cheezy Greens and Wasabi Greens. Why surprising? Though they are similar in texture to traditional tortilla chips, these chips are made from veggie fibers that are left over from cold-pressing the company’s juices, and combined with ancient grains, seeds, organic seasonings and a touch of sea salt. The company is committed to reducing food waste by upcycling vegetable fibers that would otherwise be composted. These new flavors join the Forager Project’s growing line of organic, plant-based, dairy-free products. The chips are also gluten-free and corn-free.

Info: A 5-ounce bag of the pressed veggie chips is $3.99. The Chipotle BBQ flavor also is available in a 11/2-ounce bag for $1.99. Find the chips at Jimbo’s Naturally, Albertsons, Whole Foods, Ralphs and Sprouts markets. More information, including a list of ingredients, can be found on Forager Project’s website,
