Banana Joe is delivering snacks beyond what you’ve seen before. Full of prebiotics and probiotics this synbiotic chip delivers health benefits on top of the satisfying crunch you crave.
Sourced from fragrant Hom Thong bananas, this isn’t your run-of-the-mill banana chip.
The History of Banana Joe
Joe, the namesake of Banana Joe, is an avid runner. In 2012, after a night of marathon-prepping, he was ravenous. However, all that he could find in his kitchen were some unripe Hom Thong bananas. With a little hunger-fueled innovation, he sliced them thinly, added rice bran oil, and invented the product that started it all.
Joe collaborated with his friend Nat, who was working with a social enterprise that helped convert farmers to organic and fair-trade farming. As a team, they worked to provide a unique snack powered by the unique flavor of ethically sourced Thai bananas.
Banana Joe Company Mission
Banana Joe believes that snacking can and should be healthy both for you and the environment. Not only do Banana Joe products support digestive health, immune function and enhance protein utilization, but the company also gives back to the earth with its deep-rooted support of sustainable farming.
Benefits of Banana Joe
Banana Joe is a snack you can trust to leave you feeling good. Much like your typical potato chip, it’s thin, crispy and tasty. Some other benefits include:
- Banana Joe’s chips are sourced from Hom Thong bananas, also known as Gros Michel, which were the original dominant export of bananas in the 1950s. While disease wiped out much of the plantations that provided Hom Thong bananas, Banana Joe supports farmers in Thailand to preserve this tasty species.
- As the first synbiotic chip on the market, you can reap the benefits of both prebiotics and probiotics.
- 100% of Banana Joe’s bananas are sourced from small, family-owned farms and 10% of profits go towards sustainable agriculture.
