Peacasa, a Canadian snack company announced the next phase of growth to bring an all new healthy snack option to the market in 2020. Founded by Canadian youth entrepreneurs and recent University of Ottawa graduates, Peacasa is preparing for an official launch of its 100% Chickpea based chips in Sea Salt and Mediterranean Herb flavors.
Made from five simple ingredients including chickpea flour, high-oleic sunflower oil, extra-virgin olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper, Peacasa Chickpea Chips have 8 grams of protein; 2x more than potato or corn chips, as well as 4g of fibre, and are grain-free, gluten-free, vegan, and non-GMO.
The idea of creating chips made from chickpeas stemmed from a 12-day Mediterranean hiking adventure in the Mountains of Corsica. PEACASA co-founders Aaron Johnstone and Victor
Courarie-Delage discovered a delicious wood-fired crepe made from chickpea flour in the street markets of the South of France. The pair decided to recreate this Mediterranean super snack as a thin and crispy chip.
