Imperfect, Upcycled Fruits and Veggies
We use only 100% natural, real fruits and vegetables in our snacks, free of preservatives and added sugars. With our quality dehydration process, we preserve all original nutrients, flavours and colours.
What is upcycled produce?
Remix Snacks goes even further in the sustainability scene because we create our snacks with imperfect, upcycled fruits and veggies. These are good quality produce that are rejected at the distribution food chain because they do not meet the high cosmetic or aesthetic standards consumers have for them. For example, apples might not be perfectly round and carrots may not be completely smooth, but they are still great quality, and have the same nutritional content. In fact, more than 58% of produce grown in Canada is wasted, with more than 40% of that occurring due to imperfections being discarded.
By supporting us, you are also helping to reduce food waste. To date, we have saved over 10,000 lbs of fruits and veggies from being thrown out in landfills!
Proprietary bean blend
Together with the satisfying crunch of our bean-based snacks, you'll find yourself with a perfect texture combination for a delicious, nutritious snack that keeps you full. Our snacks is where indulgence meets high protein.
Why do we use beans instead of the more commonly-used nutsin our chocolate? We found a multitude of winning benefits with this trending plant-based protein. Nutritionally, beans are lower in fat, they cannot go rancid (meaning longer shelf-life) and they contain more fibre and iron than nuts. Beans are more sustainable and environmentally friendly because they are grown locally in Canada, and takes much less water to grow than nuts do. Did you know that it takes one gallon of water to grow one almond and almost five gallons of water to grow one walnut??
