Plantain Chip varieties

The Plantain

In Europe plantains are relatively unknown, but in Central and South America and in parts of Africa, plantains are much loved as a staple food. Although they are from the same family as the banana, plantains have some important differences.Plantain

Plantains:

  • are lower in sugar and richer in starch;
  • need to be cooked before they can be eaten;
  • like the potato, are usually part of the main course or a savoury side dish.

 

Fyffes Plantain Chips

In the tropics, plantains are also very popular as a snack and now we can enjoy the wonderfully earthy plantain taste in snack form too. Fyffes Plantain Chips contain only natural ingredients for a fuller, fresher flavour - great for sharing with friends!

Try Something Different

Looking for something a little bit special? The savoury plantain chip offers a tasty alternative to potato crisps. In a unique preparation process the fresh plantain is peeled, sliced and cooked in a premium quality palm oil, all within an hour or two of being picked. The oil used has a milder taste and allows the natural, exotic flavour of the plantain to dominate and the cooking process we use reduces the fat content, producing lighter, crispier chips.Natural Taste
