How do you make kale snacks? 

We prep farm fresh kale leaves, dress them with a delicious sauce, and dehydrate them for 12 hours until they are crispy and taste delicious.

Are your products gluten-free? 
Yes, our products are absolutely gluten-free.

Are your products vegan?
Yes, our products are vegan.

Are your products organic?
Yes! From start to finish.

Are your products 100% raw?
Yes! The chips are dried at below 115 degrees, so that the temperature is never hot enough to destroy enzymes and other nutrients the way that higher heat does. 

Do your products contain soy? 
No

Do your products contain any kinds of nuts? 
Yes, our 2 flavors contain nuts. We use cashews for  "Vegan Cheese,"  used in our Kick Ass and Vivacious flavors  

 

Why is the calorie count so high in your products?
Most of our flavors have nuts like cashews or sunflower seeds. These are high calorie foods when compared to just plain kale. Also, since this is a dried food, it is very concentrated. One box has about  2lb of fresh kale.

What does "raw" mean? 
Raw means that it has not heated beyond 115 degrees Fahrenheit. That way more of the vitamins and other nutrients in the ingredients are preserved, and by products created at higher temperatures are not produced. Our products don't contain nutrients like starch that are made more digestible by cooking. 

 

What is the nutrition data for each flavor? 
Go to our shop page. Select a product and look for the image of the nutrition panel. 

 

What are the benefits of eating raw kale snacks? 
Raw kale chips are a healthy alternative to typical starch based snacks like potato or corn chips. Some traditional chips have preservatives, loads of table salt, and other questionable ingredients. All the nutrients is still live in the chips due to our air dry method.   If you are on a plant- based diet then this is the snack for you!

You receive all these healthy benefits of raw kale snacks. 

  • Kale is one of the most nutrient-dense leafy greens, rich in folate, calcium, and iron. It is very high in fiber, and with no starch. It is high in Vitamin K, Vitamin A, and Vitamin C. Also, it is a good source of minerals and beta-carotene. 

  • Raw kale is higher in nutrients than cooked kale. The cooking process causes many of the vitamins, enzymes in the kale to degrade. If you want the most health benefits, eat raw or dehydrated kale. Our vegan kale chips are dehydrated under 115 degrees Fahrenheit. 

  • Our kale chips include other highly nutritious ingredients like carrots, red pepper, nuts and nutritional yeast. 

 

Can I order online? 
Yes, you can purchase our healthy kale snacks through our kale chip page.

 

Why are my kale chips not crunchy? 
Our kale chips are famous for their crunch and bold flavor. However, they need to stay sealed tightly, so they won't absorb air. They have to be stored in a dry place as well. If they are left in an open container, they would lose their crunch. If you ordered bulk bags of kale chips, kale chips need to be stored in a proper container in a dry place and sealed tightly.

Why are my kale chips crumbs? 
Our end product is whole kale leaves before they are delivered / shipped. Depending on the size of the leaves, they may have to be broken to fit into the box. When they are shipped though, they sometimes get broken into smaller pieces since they are so fragile. They're still delicious when crumbled, especially on eggs and salads, but if you are not happy with the condition of the chips when you receive them, return for a full refund. 

 

I found desiccant packs in my product. What are desiccant packs?  
Desiccant packs are used to remove humidity that can ruin products which are sensitive to moisture. A desiccant pack is a little Tyvek bag filled with silica gel. They are completely non toxic and not dangerous to eat. However, they don't taste good, so please don't ingest them!
