DANG GOOD SNACK
Here is a fun fact: Onions are the third most popular vegetable in the world behind potatoes and corn. So it is only
natural that Dang Foods has expanded its Toasted Coconut
Chips line of snacks to include Dang Onion Chips, made
from real sliced onions, with no breading or corn.
Dang Foods takes yellow onions, slices them and then
vacuum fries them in Non-GMO canola oil.
“It is a very low temperature so it preserves a lot of the
nutrients and antioxidants and the structure of the onion.
Then we centrifuge the oil out, so it has just enough oil to
give it that flavor and crunch, but it is not greasy or soaked in
it,” says Jenny Burns, director of marketing for Dang Foods,
based in Berkeley, Calif. “It is a little less processed than your
typical potato chip and it is the whole vegetable, and does not
have the starch.”
Dang Onion Chips are available in Sea Salt, Salt-N-Pepper,
Apple BBQ and Chipotle Garlic flavors. They are packaged in
2.3-ounce “family size” bags with a suggested retail of $4.99.

Bringing Home the Vegi Bacon
Salads have become even more healthy,
thanks to Vegi Bacon Bits & Dips
introduced by Cool Foods, a Santa
Monica, Calif.-based manufacturer of
100-percent plant based foods.
Vegi Bacon Bits are made from
American-grown pinto bean legumes
(pulses) that are carefully air-dried and
minimally processed to retain their nutrients. Company officials note that the U.N.
has declared 2016 the Year of the Pulses.
“This is one of the very few bacon
alternative products that is shelf-stable,”
‘pulses,’ which means it can be treated as either a protein or a vegetable.”
Featuring a six-month shelf life, Vegi Bacon Bits are packaged in a
3-ounce resealable gusseted bag with a suggested retail price of $3.89, as
well as a 30-ounce size for foodservice.
