The newest innovation to join the upcycled food movement, Kazoo Snacks is enabling consumers to snack with an upside. Every bag of Kazoo Tortilla Chips is made using 40% upcycled corn germ, repurposed from the corn starch industry, which produces germ as a by-product. Reclaiming and upcycling reduces Kazoo's water footprint by at least 20 gallons of water per bag.
Using corn primarily harvested from generational farms in Iowa, Kazoo Snacks' proprietary manufacturing process allows it to reclaim and upcycle corn germ that would have otherwise gone to animal feed. Doing so, enables the company to get more out of each corn harvest, which saves water like crazy.
As sustainable as they are nutritious, Kazoo Snacks' tortilla chips are available in Restaurant Style, Bite-sized and Lime Zest varieties—all of which are Vegan, kosher and gluten-free. At 140 calories per serving, each handful of Kazoo's tortilla chips is chock-full of fiber, calcium, potassium and 100% natural ingredients.
Kazoo Snacks is available to purchase at an SRP of $4.99 per 11oz bag at Hyvee and Market of Choice. Starting this Fall, Kazoo will also be available in Whole Foods Northern California and soon, Amazon.
