Production & Sourcing
Plantain chips with sea salt are typically made by slicing ripe plantains into thin, uniform pieces. These slices are then fried in oil until they reach a crisp and crunchy texture, removing excess moisture in the process. After frying, the chips are quickly drained to eliminate excess oil and then seasoned with sea salt to impart a savory taste.

Plantain chips with sea salt often offer a savory and slightly salty taste with a hint of sweetness from the natural sugars in the plantains. The sea salt enhances the overall flavor without overpowering the natural taste of the plantains.
These chips typically have a crunchy and crispy texture, akin to potato chips, due to the slicing and frying process. They maintain a firm bite while being crispy and light.
Plantain chips with sea salt usually showcase a golden to light brown color, depending on the degree of frying and the ripeness of the plantains used.
Plantain chips contain nutrients present in plantains, like potassium, vitamins, and fiber. However, frying can alter the nutritional content, leading to higher fat and calorie content compared to raw plantains.
As these chips are dehydrated and fried, they have minimal moisture content, contributing to their crunchiness and extended shelf life.
They might offer a mild aroma of fried plantains, complemented by the subtle salty notes from the sea salt seasoning.
Consumers may consider factors such as the frying process, added salt, and overall fat content for dietary considerations. Those watching sodium intake should be mindful of the added sea salt. Always check product labels for specific dietary information and allergens.
