“At Artisan Tropic, We’re A Family: with a slogan like this, you can be sure that you’re getting a thoughtful, trustworthy product. One family’s mission to do what it takes to bring healthy food to their home has resulted in this line of Cassava and Plantain Strips. Made from simple, natural ingredients, these are a tasty treat, and we’re excited to share them with you!

After moving from Bogota, Colombia to Charlotte, North Carolina, the youngest member of the Guzman family began dealing with serious health problems. When conventional medicine offered no solutions, they began exploring the healing power of holistic nutrition and, as they started noticing improvements, became passionate about healthy eating. Their experiences inspired the Guzman family to create their own brand of nutritious snacks and share this passion with the world!

Artisan Tropic Plantain & Cassava Strips contain three or less ingredients. In addition to being free of preservatives and artificial flavors, they are also Non-GMOGluten FreeVegan, and Paleo Certified. Both the Plantain and Cassava varieties are cut lengthwise from the source, resulting in a innovative strip that is perfect for dipping, and is a great addition to any snack food aisle!
