But that’s not all, there’s also no preservatives and no artificial flavors inside—just plantain goodness.
More about the humble plantain
The origins of the plantain trace back to Southeast Asia (Malaysia and Indonesia, specifically), recorded as far back as nearly 500 B.C. when Alexander the Great traveled to India and “discovered” plantains, and began planting them in coastal Africa, where much of today’s crops are now produced.
Plantains (and their banana relatives) are grown on farms in the lush paradise of the tropics, providing nourishment to millions of people, from Africa to the Americas and beyond. While they may look like bananas, they are different in taste and size. For one, the plantain can be used at any stage of ripeness—even when they’re green—something you can’t do with bananas. Plus their starchy, neutral flavor lends itself to a multitude of savory dishes.
How Thrive Market Non-GMO Plantain Chips are made
The plantains used to make our chips are non-GMO and come from a farm in Ecuador. Each is harvested, blanched, peeled, sliced into rounds, then crisped to perfection before being sprinkled with just a touch of sea salt.

How to enjoy Thrive Market Non-GMO Plantain Chips
While plantain chips are absolutely delicious on their own, their hearty nature and understated flavor also make them a great base for appetizers or an accompaniment to flavorful dip like:
Savory plantain chips paired with creamy, rich almond hummus make a healthy, satiating snack or appetizer.
Pair your plantain chips with this lighter version of hummus made with a mix of cauliflower and tahini.
A lively dip like this one (made with roasted red pepper and walnuts) will go well with the subtle flavor of plantain chips.
You can also use plantain chips the same way you would use potato chips—as an accompaniment to a sandwich or to coat chicken nuggets before baking. Get creative!
