Upcycled Snacks Offer A Food Waste Solution

October 24, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Consumers purchase so many food products without thinking about their often good and nutritious by-products, says Philadelphia restaurateur Kiki Aranita. But those otherwise edible by-products often end up in landfills. There are alternatives, however. Among the eight food brands committed to upcycling to reduce food waste are two snack brands: Pulp Pantry’s Pulp Chips (Jalapeño, BBQ, and Sea Salt Lime Pulp Chips), made using the fiber left over from juicing fruits and vegetables, so they’re naturally gluten-free and vegan; and Seconds Carrot Crackers, made from upcycled juice pulp and peels, tapioca flour, garlic powder, onion powder, turmeric, nutritional yeast, and flax and chia seeds – a vegan alternative to Cheez-Its, according to Aranita. A 6-box variety pack costs $42.
