Upcycling tomatoes: turning unsellable tomatoes into tomato chips

US company Just Pure Foods, have launched tomato chips. "These healthy alternative snacks are made using sustainable farming practices by upcycling tomatoes that would have been plowed under because they are not the right size, shape or have ripened too early," the company says. Just Pure Food's strategic partner, Master's Touch Brands, has been growing produce at Nase Farms in Vizcaino Baja, California, for more than 30 years. 

For millions of Americans, the start of a new year means New Year's resolutions. The most common resolutions relate to improving physical health, specifically through weight loss, a healthier diet, and exercise. Resolutions only really matter if you actually stick with them, but unfortunately, most people don't achieve their resolutions. According to US producer Just Pure Foods, their new  "Highly Nutritious & Insanely Delicious™ Crunchy Tomato Chips" can help individuals keep their New Year's resolutions as these snacks can provide a boost of healthy energy without adding the calories found in other delicious snacks.

"And snacking is important. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2020-2025 include recommendations for nutrient-dense snacks, such as raw vegetables, fresh fruit, nuts, and plain yogurt. Yes, eating tomatoes can make all the difference when it comes to eating healthy and losing weight!" 

"Besides boosting your metabolism, tomatoes contain important nutrients and anti-inflammatory compounds," explains Dr. Scott Feldman, Founder of Just Pure Foods. "Neither baked nor fried, our chips are low-temperature dried to keep enzymes and nutrients intact. Each package has only 50 or 60 delicious and nutritious calories."

The snacks come in three flavors: Spicy Jalapeño Tomato Chips, Cheesy Tomato Chips, and Barbecue Tomato Chips. Besides ordering online, the Healthy Tomato Chips are available in California at Ralphs and Bristol Farms.
